Need groceries or gourmet foods? Try Publix Super Market in South Walton. Publix also has a pharmacy and sells alcohol. There is a Harry and David shop in the outlet mall off hwy 98 as well!
For mother’s day out, she may have something quite different in mind for shopping. Mom may actually want a little more of a boutique shopping experience. She may even want to go with a girlfriend or have a mother/daughter shopping experience. There are quite a few super cute areas to check out like Gulf Place along 30-A; there are cute boutique shops and a great cafe for lunch. Also, check out Seaside or Grayton Beach; these are both awesome areas with beach, shopping, food and more.
