Five Best Places to Bring Children in South Walton this Spring

by | Mar 21, 2018 | News


It’s tough to travel with an infant, but once you get here, you’ll find that South Walton remains fairly small-child friendly. With very few places to avoid, you should have a wonderful time with your family. Still, here are a few of our favorite places to bring the kids.


The Bay

Taking the kids out to eat can often be an ordeal, but here, it doesn’t have to be. Settled on the bay at the edge of the 331 bridge is the Bay restaurant. You’ll find the children’s menu has a great variety, sure to satisfy even the pickiest eater. Plus, if you’re sitting on the patio and the kids can’t seem to stay in their chairs, there’s a section of beach that they can play on while you finish your dinner.


The Hub

With multiple places to grab a bite to eat and a giant lawn to run around on, this is a great spot to bring the kids. It hosts family movie nights, concerts and other events, too, so check before you head that way to see if there’s some extra fun in store for you.


Gulf Place

Another spot with a large green area perfect for burning off some energy, Gulf Place has dining, shopping and events with your family in mind. Stop by Pizza by the Sea for an easy meal then stroll along the art walk or stop in some of the great stores.



Lined with food trucks and nestled beside the beach, Seaside could easily be an all-day adventure for you and your family. Hit the beach, or lounge on the green in the city center. Shop, or grab a bite to eat. There’s something for everyone there.


The Village of Baytowne Wharf

While you’ll have to go through a gate to get there, it’s worth the trip. Family-friendly restaurants (like Hartell’s), child-inspired entertainment (like the playground and Blast Arcade) and special events designed with families in mind make this a perfect place to spend an afternoon or evening together.


Again, it’s not too hard to find places made for spending time as a family in South Walton, but hit these spots and you’re sure to have a great time.
