There’s no doubt about it, the holidays can be stressful. There are so many details to consider, and this year even more complicated—with so many working from home and attending remote school.
For Thanksgiving 2020, why not turn tradition on its head, too? Skip the usual Thanksgiving routine and rent a home at the beach! Picture it—your family all together in a beautifully spacious beach vacation house enjoying Thanksgiving day making your famous roasted turkey and apple pie. After dinner, take a long walk along the beach while a pastel pink sunset lights up the sky.
Don’t feel like cooking this year? Not a problem, our local experts at Dune Allen Realty can help you find the perfect turkey dinner delivery.

Work Up an Appetite with a 30A 10K
Every year, the 30A 10K Thanksgiving Day Races raise thousands of dollars for local charities. Since they began nine years ago, the race has donated over $430,000 to South Walton non-profit organizations!
This year, due to on-going concerns and social distancing guidelines, they’ll host a virtual event. Register online, complete your chosen distance between November 21 and November 29, then log your results online. A signature race medal and t-shirt will be mailed to your home in December. Our local experts can recommend plenty of scenic running trails for your turkey trot!
Go Black Friday Shopping at Gulf Place
Located in the heart of Santa Rosa Beach, Gulf Place was built to “slow folks down.” Their palm-tree lined streets, plentiful park benches, and wide sidewalks invite you to stay and stroll awhile. You’re sure to be charmed by the eclectic boutiques and galleries—there’s something for everyone on your list this year.
Check out The Artists at Gulf Place—where local artists showcase their pottery, jewelry, watercolors, and photography, all in a very artsy outdoor setting.
Indulge Your Sweet Tooth at Blue Mountain Creamery
No trip to South Walton is complete without a trip to Blue Mountain Creamery. Open from 10 AM to 10 PM and serving up some of the freshest ice creams around, Blue Mountain Creamery is a super-popular spot with locals and visitors.
And now the Blue Mountain Shake Shop—located behind The Creamery—is open to tantalize you with creamy milkshakes, melt-in-your-mouth donuts, and specialty coffees. You don’t want to miss a trip to this mouthwatering oasis in Blue Mountain Beach.

Chablis By The Sea
Just like the delicious wine it’s named for, Chablis By The Sea is a Dune Allen Beach vacation rental that is rare, pure, and vibrant.

The impeccably designed kitchen is a chef-inspired dream, complete with a double oven, gas range, grill, and a griddle.
When dinner is complete, simply step off your porch, down into the sugary soft sand, and take an after-dinner stroll along the shore of the Gulf of Mexico. It’s pure beachfront holiday nirvana!
A beach Thanksgiving . . . now is the time to plan.
