Rainy Day Fun on 30A

If you are vacationing on the beautiful beaches of 30A and the forecast calls for a little rain, never fear! There are plenty of fun things to do on 30A that will keep you dry. Here’s a list of our favorite five.

30A Shopping


A rainy day is the perfect excuse to hit the shops. 30A has a bountiful selection of unique boutiques including the shops at Gulf Place, Seaside, Grayton, Rosemary, and Inlet Beach. Silver Sands Outlets in Miramar Beach offers over 110 designer and name-brand outlet stores including Coach, Kate Spade New York, Michael Kors, Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store, and Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th. Pier Park in Panama City Beach has over 124 stores including American Eagle, Forever 21, Dillard’s, JCPenney’s and Marshalls. When the sun’s not out you can shop till you drop on 30A!

30A Theaters


Whether you’re staying on the eastside or the westside of 30A you’ll find state-of-the-art theaters that are perfect for a rainy day. Grand Boulevard is home to AMC Boulevard 10, showing some of the most popular movie releases. This theater offers a unique movie-going experience from the “BIG-D” auditorium to ten screens with seating for 1,800. Pier Park is home to the Grand Imax Theater offering stadium seating, wall to wall screens, high-back rocking chairs, digital sound, and 3D Capabilities. Duck in from the drizzle, grab a bag of popcorn, sit back, and enjoy the show!

30A Breweries

Craft Breweries

Local breweries are where it’s at on a rainy day. A little off the beaten path of 30A you’ll find Idyll Hounds Brewing Company and Grayton Beer Company. They both have spacious tap rooms full of their own craft brews. Fifteen miles away but worth the drive, you’ll find Destin Brewery. A small taproom with a friendly feel. Hang out with locals while tasting some delicious craft brews.

30A Arcade


When the weather won’t cooperate, find some indoor fun at one of the many arcades just around the corner from 30A. Baytowne Wharf is home to Blast Arcade & Laser Maze and its sister company Thrills Laser Tag & Arcade, resides in Seascape. New as well as old time favorite arcade games can be played all rainy-day long. Not to mention a 2-level laser tag arena. Pier Park is home to Dave & Buster’s where you can enjoy great food, drink, and play hundreds of awesome arcade games. With all this indoor excitement you’ll forget all about the weather outside!

30A Spas


When on vacation and bad weather is brewing, we head straight to the spa! There’s nothing like a massage, facial and champagne in the relaxation room to lift your spirits. After a trip to the spa nothing can bring you down, not even a little rain. The Spa in Seaside offers massage, facials, body treatments and more!

If you’re like us, a rainy day is best spent curled up in a blanket with a cup of tea. There’s something about watching a storm roll in over the Gulf of Mexico that’s so mesmerizing. So, enjoy nature’s show from your beachfront 30A Vacation Rental remembering the sun will come out soon!
