As one of Florida's many beach neighborhoods, Santa Rosa Beach is a hotspot for lounging beneath the sun, though there are plenty of other things to do in the area as well.
- Point Washington State Forest: Get away from the beach and spend some time walking the trails. The park has three trail systems, giving hikers a choice of how they'd like to explore.
- Eden Gardens State Park: Covering 163 acres of what used to be the historic Wesley homestead, the park centers around a renovated 1897 mansion.
- Gulf Place: Located in the heart of Santa Rosa Beach, this community is a place where locals and tourists mix, with nature trails, boutique shops and live music drawing visitors.
