The 30A Trolley

If you’ve ever seen that classic Judy Garland movie, you may want to ask someone to “Meet Me in St. Louis”, however in this case you may want them to meet you on Scenic 30A! The 30A Beach Trolley is now running along this lovely route with stops at Gulf Place in Santa Rosa Beach, Blue Mountain Beach, Grayton Beach, WaterColor, Seaside, Seagrove Beach, Watersound, The Hub at Prominence, Alys Beach, Seacrest, Rosemary Beach and Inlet Beach. Rivard by Ocean Reef Vacation Rentals is pleased to offer distinctive 30A vacation residences of all kinds along the way!

This delightful old fashioned open-air trolley provides a special pleasant experience for its passengers - where you may enjoy the gulf breeze and sensational scenery without having the hassle of driving. No more worries about parking during the busy times of the year or having to call Uber when you have had a few glasses of wine. It makes stops at almost every 30A coastal village near restaurants, bars, specialty shops, galleries, and boutiques, as well as many of our vacation rentals. This is a wonderful mode of transportation, especially when rollicking seasonal festivals or open-air concerts are being hosted at Gulf Place in Santa Rosa Beach, Seaside, The Hub at Prominence, or Rosemary Beach. 

You may get a day pass to use this service for only $15 or get a week pass for $35. If you are planning to meet someone at one of these locations and then riding back with them, you may get a one-way pass for only $5. This is a “Hop on, Hop off” service that runs from 10 am till 10 pm every day during the season from March through October. They arrive and depart from each location every twenty minutes, and each trolley is named for a different fish!

This company was founded this year in Grayton Beach and Bob Dickhaus the founder said that he expected “the beach trolley to provide a viable alternative to guests having to drive once they get to 30A, reducing traffic and contributing to a safer environment.” The captivating coastal communities along 30A have become a highly popular destination for many vacationing families as well as residents due to and the sensational scenery and unique fun events that define the sought after lifestyle it offers. This is a fun, safe alternative to drinking and driving, and it is estimated that its usage will eliminate up to 500 vehicles from the road each day. 

If you have never visited the wonderful world of Scenic 30A, it can also provide your family and friends with an awesome “Day Trip” to see each one of these enchanting coastal villages. They all have their own “personalities” and setting, which are so picturesque they look like something out of a storybook. A trip from one end to the other lasts about one hour and thirty minutes.

Tickets are easily available at their website, and more information can be received by calling 850-865-5145. “Clang clang clang goes the trolley!
