Hello all!

I'm posting this question here because whenever we vacation at South Walton County's beaches, we always see a *ton* of Louisiana plates. (lucky you are within driving distance!) Hoping one of you good people can help a girl out.

I haven't been to the area recently, but I have read there is a new beachfront condo development being built on Hwy 30a between Seagrove and Seaside, FL.

Can anyone give me the inside scoop on how it is affecting beach travel/enjoyment in the area? Is it noisy? What about traffic?

We want to go there in the fall. I have tried asking on Trip Advisor -- no responses so far.

Sincere thanks in advance!

It's been a little while since I've been, but the traffic in the summer is already crazy, and will for sure get worse. I remember going to Seaside in the early '90s when it was still kind of unknown. Those days are long gone, but it's still a great place to get a Break from the city. I think my last visit was summer 2014, so I probably don't have the answer to your question, but if you're going in the fall, it should be a little slower pace for sure.

I haven't been in recent years but that region of Florida is the closest Louisiana has in the way of great white sandy beaches. So no surprise if you see a lot of Louisiana plates vacationing out there.
