Santa Rosa is part of the Fort Walton Beach-Crestview-Destin, Flordia Metropolitan area. We stayed in a place called Watercolor. It’s a resort and residential community that is near the Santa Rosa beach. Santa Rosa Florida was stunning. They had beautiful white beaches and the water was not cold or hot. It was a perfect beach vacation with my family. They even had this amazing neighborhood called Seaside. They had food trucks, a coffee shop, clothing stores, and more restaurants. It looked like a place where a romantic comedy would take place. This vacation was very relaxing, my family and I would go to the beach in morning and get something to eat for lunch or dinner and then walk around seaside. We also went to a water-park in watercolor and that was a lot fun. My nephew even made me get on the slide because I was scared.
Santa Rosa beach is a must. I really fell in love with it and I am still dreaming about it today. I wish I was there now. I was really excited about the seafood because the ocean is right there. Obviously, I had more than seafood because it’s vacation. Here are some restaurant recommendations:
- Pizza Bar: Delicious pizza with a good view. We sat outside and the weather was great because we were near the ocean. Even the Brussels sprouts were good at Pizza Bar.
- Stinky’s fish camp: first place we ate at. It was further from our house rental on our way from the airport. Our server told us that the food is fresh nothing is frozen. I had the fish tacos. The portions were huge and one was enough. My family and I shared the ceviche and it was amazing.
- Grayton seafood co: I ordered the Alfredo with shrimp and crawfish. It’s one of the best Alfredo’s I have ever had. Of course, we had to take a picture outside the restaurant.
- Five Daughter’s Bakery: it’s a food truck in seaside. We ordered the donuts. My sister and I shared the bacon donut. It was good but really sweet. It was a lot for the morning and I am glad we shared it.
Watercolor resort was great to us and we were walking distance from Santa Rosa beach. We were near the cute neighborhood of Seaside. Also, we walking distance from some restaurants and cute shops. I absolutely fell in love with Santa Rosa and watercolor. It’s an area I want to come back too. The seafood was great and there was beautiful views. Our shuttle driver told us May is a good time to visit because its not that hot and less crowded. I am so happy my brother set up this trip and I hope we do it again soon.
