Every vacation needs a little retail therapy. Take a stroll and enjoy window shopping along 30A. It’s a pleasant way to pass some time and experience the local flavor. Bring a taste of the Emerald Coast home. Designer bathing suits, unique home décor, timeless jewelry and more await you. Whether you’re a casual shopper or a full-blown shopaholic, there are many exclusive 30A shops to enjoy. These are some of our favorite:

30Avenue

30Avenue is one of the most popular shopping destinations on the Emerald Coast. This beautiful area is full of exceptional restaurants and affluent retail stores. And it’s centrally located⁠—only a short walk to Seacrest, Rosemary Beach and Alys Beach. It’s a great place to spend the afternoon and grab a bite to eat or enjoy a nighttime, starlit stroll and a delicious, romantic dinner by candlelight.

Outpost is a 30Avenue highlight. Here you’ll find a range of offerings like clothing, home goods, lighting and more. You’ll find beach-chic apparel and boho-style accessories. If you like the style at Outpost, be sure to stop by their sister store, Mast, in Alys Beach, to find fine home furnishings, greenery, art, lighting and furniture.

Stop by Shimmering Seas next to browse a beautiful selection of unique jewelry. From timeless to exotic, there’s a range of styles to choose from. Pick up a one-of-a-kind keepsake that you’ll remember forever. Shimmering Seas carries many materials and designer brands such as pearls, aqua blue Larimar, Alex and Ani, Melinda Maria, and Uno de 50 Jewelry.

Grayton Beach

Beau Interiors captures the essence of 30A interior design. This gorgeous lifestyle store takes Instagram-worthy to the next level. You’ll melt for the airy coastal living color palette. White, light and airy, we love the simple, understated elegance of this exclusive 30A store. Their furniture, rugs, art, décor and gifts are all curated with style in mind. Beau Interiors also offers high-end design services from small projects to complete home design. Whether you’re stopping in for a small gift or ready to re-haul your home from top to bottom, Beau Interiors is a must visit.

Seaside and Seacrest Beach

Ophelia has multiple locations—and for good reason. We love the gorgeous designer swimsuits they offer. Beautiful patterns and vibrant colors, the swimsuits here are trendy and high quality. Take your beach style to the next level with a new hat, beach tote or classy cover up. You’ll find some of the top swimsuit brands and designers like Mikoh and Mara Hoffman. Be the most stylish beach babe in the water this summer.

Merchants of Seaside

Picked as the idyllic filming location for the movie The Truman Show, Seaside is one of the most charming and picturesque towns in the country. Light and breezy architecture and perfectly-planned spaces make a pleasant setting for relaxing retail therapy. Pop into Sundog Books, a family-owned, independent bookstore with a selection of wonderful titles to choose from. From bestsellers to lesser-known finds, there’s something for everyone here.

Follow your nose to this delicious store. Modica Market is another of our favorite Seaside shops. This family-owned gourmet and specialty market has a wonderful spread of delicious food, craft beer, wine and unique foodie finds. You’ll find specialty cheeses, gourmet ice cream, imported coffee and more. Modica Market is a local icon and has been featured in hundreds of magazines like Vogue. Don’t forget to grab one of their gourmet to-go meals to enjoy later.

Silver Sands Premium Outlets

If you’re a fan of outlet shopping, you’re not alone. The Silver Sands Premium Outlets is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. Snag an amazing deal at any of the 110 designer and name brand outlet stores. You’ll find all of your favorites like Calvin Klein, Coach, Gap, Kate Space, Lacoste, Michael Kors, Polo Ralph Lauren, Nike, Saks, Vera Bradley and more. What’s the draw of outlet shopping?
