I'm Still HERE...

 I decided to take most of July off from blogging. I really wanted to enjoy the waning days of my summer.

New Orleans is HOT as h***, and it's rained most days. The yard is green and lush.

I hope you and yours are enjoying the summer. I am looking forward to Fall, my most favorite season.



Checking in, y'all!

 J and I love to dine at the coastal eateries along 30-A. Some of our very favorites on this trip are:

George's at Alys Beach: click HERE

Cottage cafe serving upscale American fare in a bright & airy dining room or on a breezy porch. This restaurant is always top on our list when on 30-A.






Gallion's: click HERE

An approachable upscale restaurant and cocktail lounge located on iconic Barrett Square in the heart of Rosemary Beach. Gallion's is a new addition to the exciting scene in Rosemary Beach.






Havana Beach Bar & Grill: click HERE

Stylish spot in The Pearl Hotel with a mahogany bar & veranda for locally sourced New American fare.







The Pearl Rooftop: click HERE

Enjoy this alfresco rooftop venue with a menu of shared-plates inspired by Havana Beach Bar & Grill. We dined here for lunch several times during our stay at he Pearl.





Pescado Seafood Grill and Rooftop Bar: click HERE

A  fine dining, seafood-centric menu in a light-filled dining room with contemporary interiors & patio seating. We could not get reservations but were seated at the rooftop bar. It was excellent!









We ate and drank quite well. Please comment if you require my full reviews.

Uptown Acorn Travels: Rosemary Beach, FL {The Pearl}

 Last week, J and I traveled to one of our favorite spots, 30-A. We have stayed at the Watercolor Inn for years, but this year, we decided to change it up. We stayed at The Pearl at Rosemary Beach. To say we were impressed is an understatement. 





At The Pearl Hotel at 63 Main Street, Rosemary Beach®, 32461, the little details are of greatest importance. From the cocktail greeting at check-in and complimentary valet to the hand-delivered, freshly baked treat at bedtime, each moment is thoughtfully curated to feel like it was crafted especially for you.
 

Framed by a peaked clock tower, pointed turrets, sun-splashed terraces and black-and-white striped awnings, The Pearl Hotel brings timeless luxury and sophistication to a West Indies- style community of cobblestone streets. Just as our name implies, The Pearl is meant to be slowly unpacked and enjoyed, preferably beneath a stunning Gulf Coast sunset with a glass of bubbly in hand.

Located near the ocean in the charming coastal town of South Walton, Florida, off 30A, our Forbes Four-Star and AAA-Four-Diamond hotel has been named one of Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Hotels. 


I loved our room #202 which overlooked the green as well as the Gulf. I felt totally spoiled for the week. The room which was renovated in March 2022 was well-appointed. From coffee talking mornings to cocktail drinking evenings, the balcony provided the perfect spot for people watching and sipping.









I am most happy to recommend a stay at The Pearl if you are on 30-A. You will not be disappointed. I also love the complimentary beach chairs and signature black and white umbrellas.





We were also fans of the adults-only pool and the rooftop grill/bar.


The Pearl, y'all!
