Have you ever noticed how a beach vacation can inspire healthy lifestyle habits? It’s true! A coastal getaway offers a beautiful oasis for peaceful relaxation and recharging, which in turn encourages healthy living in so many ways. When at the beach, we feel motivated to spend more time outdoors, exercise, and even eat clean.

Fortunately, Scenic Highway 30A makes it easy for vacationers to keep up with this healthy beach lifestyle. You can spend time outside by lounging on the beach, biking through 30A’s coastal towns, and exploring the state parks. Exercise doesn’t have to be boring. Instead of hitting the gym, you can paddleboard on the dune lakes, go for a run in the sand, join a yoga session on the beach, and so much more. 30A is also home to plenty of restaurants and shops that allow you to eat organic.

Check out these organic spots on 30A, and be sure to drop by during your trip!
