Designer Vacations
By Chelle Koster Walton

Rosemary Beach re-creates an old-fashioned beach town with a look all its own. The town of Seaside really started something in Florida's Panhandle. The brainchild of Miami planners Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, it was the first-of-its-kind traditional neighborhood development...Read More

Relying on Rosemary
Florida without children? Yes, it is possible.
By Kristen K. Tucker

The Family Appeal of a Florida panhandle vacation is undeniable: Ten hours of car time, and you're checked into your teal and coral toned condo ready to hit the crowded beach or take the kids on the go-cart track. Even more appealing is the grown-up vacation...Read More

Road trip Rosemary beach, Fla.

A pedestrian paradise

Town by the beach was planned for touring by foot.
By Blake Guthrie

Book-ended by the condominium high rises of Panama City Beach and Destin in the distance, Rosemary Beach appears as if out of a storybook to travelers along the Emerald Coast of the northwest Florida panhandle.  Nothing in this planned community along Scenic Highway 30-A rises over four stories....Read More

Savor Serenity at Rosemary Beach
Family Fun By Kristen Page-Kirby

If you're looking for a vacation destination for next summer (rather than a last-minute getaway), plan on going when Camp Rosemary is in session.  The daycamp for kids five to twelve gives you a break in the morning – they can play, meet new friends and do crafts while you hang out on the beach (or just sleep)...Read More
Florida Travel & Life – August 2010
This way to the beach...
Seaside towns along a secret stretch of coast offer architectural beauty and easy living. One hour flights or an easy drive have long attracted second-home buyers  from the South to Northwest Floridy. (Don't be surprised by the occasional "y'all" and "ma'am" and cuisine with a Southern spin.)...Read More

Tampa Bay Weddings - January 2009
A wedding at Florida's own Rosemary Beach provides an extraordinary location and experience. Rosemary Beach's one-of-a-kind design was created with top resort destinations in mind, with architecture reminiscent of St. Augustine, the West Indies, New Orleans, and Charlston. The sugar-white sands and natural dunes of Rosemary Beach provide a stunning backdrop for the 'I dos'...Read More

Grand Luxe Registry - November 2008
While some areas of Florida have built their reputation on non-stop activities and sensory overload, Rosemary Beach thrives on serenity. It's the kind of place where you can unplug and recharge at the same time; a place where the streets are more populated with bicycles and foot traffic than with automobiles...Read More
Southern Accents - September & October 2008
Along the Gulf of Mexico, you'll find a posh yet laid-back town with high-quality shopping and dining enhanced by the nearness of the shore. Years ago, a weekend in the panhandle meant beautiful scenery and fresh seafood; but probably not upscale shopping and fine dining. In the last few decades, though, communities have popped up between Destin and Panama City that dispel any preconceptions of beach kitsch...Read More
Boca - September & October 2008
"Now we're going to play it our way," Ken Gifford says. Instead of rolling the pallino across the even lawn of the Western Green, he bowls it down an adjacent walkway.  The small ball cracks against a planter and slows to a halt. This is "extreme bocce", a version of the Italian lawn-bowling game, invented by the residents of Rosemary Beach...Read More

Stone Magazine - May 08
Beach Vacations are, by definition, supposed to be relaxing - a getaway from the stresses and pressures of everyday life, with the decisions of the day no more demanding than what beverages to bring to the beach, or which of the four swimsuits you packed to wear. Truth be told, however, it is not often that those of us who are electronically tethered to our work lives find a retreat that is truly a refuge from the rest of the world; a place that offers luxury and nostalgia, a place that positively discourages cars, encourages strolls and bike rides, and practically commands one to banish any modern technology to the suitcase...

Executive Travel - April 08
The Flavor of Beach Chic - Rosemary Beach brings a new sophistication to northwest Florida.  Traditional Neighborhood Developments (TNDs) have sprung up like wildfire across the country since the concept was first introduced in the 1980s. The form, also called New Urbanism, emphasizes a pedestrian scale, public green spaces, and a variety of dwelling types and mixed retail/residential structures, and has been avidly adopted by coastal vacation community developers, whose clientele is eager to arrive, park the car, and get down to the business of relaxing with the family and friends...
