Memorial Day is a great and wonderful American tradition to kick off summer (for most of us)!

So if you are on 30A to celebrate this year, take a moment to teach your kiddos why we do this sacred act of remembrance - Memorial Day in the USA.

Then as you hit the road and beach this week and summer all along the Emerald Coast don’t forget a little care goes a long way.

Two very important aspects of an excellent 30A experience - golf cart & water safety - 

Golf carts on roads -

  • GREEN street signs are county roads & regulated by the county
  • BLUE street signs are private/community roads and have their own set of “rules” for golf carts
  • Inquire with your rental company or the community in which you are staying about their laws/rules of the road
  • Law and common sense rules apply to golf carts on 30A - licensed drivers only, wear your seat belts, don’t overload the cart, keep hands/heads/feet inside the vehicle at all times, don’t drive at night, don’t drink and drive, keep off roads with speed limits above 35 mph, no texting - Walton County Sheriff will say no excuses

      Cart Rules                                                             

Water safety is a no brainer but it never hurts to brush up.

    • Text 31279 for water/surf conditions 
    • Double Red tells you to stay out of the water and comes with a $500 fine
    • Red should warn you to stay out of deeper water and probably altogether out of the Gulf

           Water safety

A few ways to celebrate Memorial Day here:
