3 Ways to Celebrate the End of Summer

Beach Bonfires Santa Rosa Beach & 30A

With August here, it’s hard to deny that summer is finally starting to come to a close. Summer vacations may be ending as kids go back to school and those vacation days start to run out. But that doesn’t mean you have to call it in already. Why not end the summer with a celebration worthy of the rest of the fun you’ve had on 30A so far? Here are a few of our favorite ideas for celebrating the end of summer before returning to your normal life.

Finish Out a Summer Concert Series

Summer is a great time of year for free live music under the open sky, so it’s little wonder that so many towns along 30a have their own summer concert series. You may have already followed one throughout your vacation, so why not end the summer right by seeing them through until the end? Some, like the Seaside Summer Concert Series or the one in Alys Beach, end in early August, but the Gulf Place Summer Sunday Concerts at 393 & 30A runs through August 18, at which time they’ll have the final performance showcasing Jamell Richardson.

Have a Party on the Beach

What better way to celebrate the end of summer than by gathering together with some friends and family to have a good time on the beach before you have to go back to your normal lives? Bring some music, swimsuits, good company, and of course a beach bonfire to keep things going after the sun goes down or even to roast s’mores. While all South Walton beaches require a permit for beach bonfires, consider a bonfire rental from The Rental Shop 30A that comes with a permit AND we’ll take care of the set-up and clean up so you can focus on having a good time. While some of our larger packages include chairs, if you need more, we also offer beach chair rentals.

Check Everything Off Your List

Have any 30A activities you haven’t gotten around to, and now you find yourself headed home in just a few days? Make time to check off as many things as you can off your list to make sure you’ve had the best summer possible. Want to explore the rare and beautiful coastal dune lakes? Rent a kayak and head out to the water with a camera and eyes ready for wonder. Meant to check out the local food trucks but never got around to it? Download an app for finding food trucks and track one down before you leave. Any last minute boutiques or bookstores that you haven’t visited yet? Make sure you give them a shot before you pack up all your shopping finds.

Trying to make the most of your summer, even as it starts to draw to a close? Let The Rental Shop 30A help. We offer rentals of beach bonfires, kayaks, beach chairs, paddle boards, and golf carts for daily or weekly rates. Call us today for more information at 850-260-0001.
