Where do you fly into for 30A?
Looking forward to a trip down to the beach? This trip-tip may help a bit with the planning process! There are a few airports on the Emerald Coast to choose from...except maybe don't fly into Pensacola no matter which 30A community you're visiting though ;D
There are two airports we recommend using when flying into 30A:
Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP)
The Panama City airport would be our recommendation if you're staying anywhere east of Seagrove Seaside area, because it's technically closer. Again, once you're down here, you're never too far from that sugar-white sand! Although, in general this option is closer to most of 30A.
If you'd like to check exactly how far you'll be from your vacation rental of choice, the address is: 6300 W Bay Pkwy, Panama City, FL 32409
Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS)
Visiting the West end? This option is a tad bit closer than ECP. If you're visiting Dune Allen, Gulf Place or Blue Mountain, we'd recommend VPS. It's just on the other side of Destin, and about a 45 min drive to the top of 30A
If you want to plug in the address for reference on this one, it's: 1701 FL-85, Eglin AFB, FL 32542
First thing's first, we recommend verifying with your property manager on what options you may have if you arrive before check-in. Some will allow you to leave your belongings in a safe place if you want to explore, hit the pool, or get a head start on all those beach days...but they all have different policies, and it's ideal to have this squared away before you get here.
You can opt to taxi, Uber, or Lyft from the airport. There are also several car services available as well. Some even include carseats in their shuttle rates! We can help coordinate these shuttle services so if you have questions, just let us know. We're here to help :)
