Grayton Beach offers you a place where life is simple and easy.
If Seaside Florida is the heart of 30A, then Grayton is the soul. Rightly so – it has been around a hundred years longer.
Grayton Beach was founded in 1890 by Army Generals William Miller and William Wilson.
Once upon a time, Grayton was isolated from the rest of the world by narrow, sandy roads running through forests. Until 1930, there were no bridges across the Choctawhatchee Bay.
In 1967, the State of Florida created Grayton Beach State Park, which was voted in 1994 the “most beautiful beach” in the United States. And that’s when people really started flocking, putting Grayton Beach real estate on the “vactioner’s map.” Learn about Grayton Beach State Park.
But Grayton is still 30A’s vintage beach village – it’s beautiful – and is enclosed by Grayton State Park on both sides; this preserves the town’s extra-wide beaches, large sand dunes and small-town feel.
In Grayton, driving on the beach, fishing, and living a relaxed lifestyle have become a tradition. Grayton’s motto, “nice dogs, strange people,” refers to a time when there was said to have been more “resident” dogs in town than people.
Other than some monster houses that have sprung and mixed with the old beach cottages, along with some commercial changes, Grayton remains the same as in the good-old-days.
The Red Bar now inhabits what was before the Paradise Café; and before it, the Grayton General Store, where in the past, Grayton residents danced their nights away.
Now, the Grayton Beach Red Bar is arguably the most popular restaurant on 30A. On a weekend evening – as the band plays its funky, old-time jazz and blues – the Grayton Red Bar’s atmosphere transports guests into a sort of 1950’s-jazz-club-dream.
Come to Grayton and experience Florida as it was always meant to be. Consider Grayton real estate for your Gulf coast beach investment. The value is certainly there!
Experience why Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles describes: “The most mesmerizing distraction on the Emerald Coast is the combination of shocking white shores with rich, emerald green waters. The sprawling shores provide seating for performances by dancing dolphins and sandpipers, as well as for beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the Gulf.
