The year-round sun and warm temperatures of Florida’s coastal towns, plus the sand, sun, water, and fun you’ll find there, make them an ideal destination for your getaway this Memorial Day. There are several coastal towns to choose from, but the towns along historic Route 30A in the Florida panhandle offer a unique experience. There are plenty of things to see and do for Memorial Day in Florida. With special Memorial Day activities thrown in, you’ll want a vacation rental that’s in the thick of the action.

Features & Amenities

All of our properties are only moments from the beach and crashing waves of the Gulf of Mexico. You’ll be down on the beach in no time, enjoying activities like swimming, sunbathing, and more. Stay closer to home and enjoy outdoor backyard amenities like pools, spas, outdoor living and dining furnishings, outdoor kitchens with massive BBQ grills, and outdoor games.

Head inside the air-conditioned home and enjoy sprawling great rooms that combine living, cooking, and dining functions into one space. Stylish living room furnishings reflect the beach atmosphere outside your door, and dining rooms offer everything from casual to formal spaces. Fully equipped kitchens are stocked with all the utensils, cookware, and appliances you need to prepare and serve any meal or snack – from the Memorial Day cookout to fixings for a beach picnic. You’ll find more convenience throughout the home, including complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as in-unit laundry so you can keep your favorite beach outfits clean throughout your stay. For days in, take advantage of the home’s books, board games, magazines, toys, and more. Private bedrooms in each home allow you to relax and unwind in ways you can’t at a hotel. Close the door and keep to your own sleeping schedule, or just spend some time on your own. Many homes feature multiple suites with attached bathrooms for extra comfort and privacy. Select homes even offer bunk rooms and other spaces that appeal to the needs and wants of younger guests.

The Extras

You took a vacation this Memorial Day in Florida to escape stress and worry. Eliminate it completely when you book with Dune Vacation Rentals. Along with stress, leave all the baby gear at home – we partner with Vacayzen (contact them directly) to provide you with cribs, strollers, pack-n-plays and more. Take a vacation from cleaning and book daily or mid-stay cleaning services. Ask about other services like butlers, private chefs, and more to add extra luxury to your stay.

Fun for Memorial Day in Florida

Plan plenty of beach and Memorial Day fun for your Memorial Day visit to 30A. Make sure to make some of these events and activities part of your stay.

Baytowne Memorial Day Weekend Celebration

The Village of Baytowne Wharf is celebrating with style with two nights of family-friendly events. Start the fun Saturday, May 27, 2023, with a concert featuring the Forrest Williams Band and Pherrel Williams performing a variety of music ranging from southern rock to country to blues from 7-9 p.m. On Sunday, May 28, 2023, bring the kids for more live music, plus activities just for them, and a fireworks show. Kids will love face painting, balloon animals, and lawn games, and everyone will love the live music performed by the Trest Richerson Band. After the band plays the last note, Baytowne Wharf will light up the sky above the lagoon with a patriotic fireworks show. The event takes place 7-9 p.m.

Spa Day

No matter how much fun and excitement you pack into a Memorial Day beach vacation, you came for rest and relaxation, too. Treat yourself to some total relaxation this Memorial Day with a trip to a local spa. There are several day spas scattered along 30A where you can relax your cares away with a treatment like a mani/pedi, facial, body scrub or wrap, and more. End the day completely relaxed and recharged. Some spas even offer treatments that cater to men and their unique needs, so the men of the group can get some vacation pampering, too.

The Beach

Historic 30A is all about the beach. Swim, sunbathe, take a walk or run, spread out a blanket and plant an umbrella for a Memorial Day beach picnic, or to sit and read while the waves provide the background noise. If you’re looking for an adrenaline boost, add some excitement with parasailing, snorkeling, or SCUBA diving.
