Your Guide to 30A Beach Bonfires
A Beach Bonfire Is the Ultimate 30A Bucket List Item
If you’ve already seen a signature 30A sunset, surveyed the local food and music scene at The Red Bar, and paddleboarded across a breathtaking dune lake, it’s time for you to gather everyone up and experience a beach bonfire! This activity has become immensely popular in 30A as of late, but there are some important points to keep in mind before grabbing your roasting sticks and bag of marshmallows.
How to Achieve a Perfect Beach Bonfire in 30A
Don’t Blindly Set Up Your Own
It may be tempting to run to the nearest store in search of firewood, s’more supplies, and camping chairs, but keep in mind that it’s easier to let a company organize a fire for you. Not only will this allow you to avoid the hassle of setting everything up, but you also won’t have to worry about doing something wrong. In our area, an improperly permitted or executed beach bonfire can result in hefty fines and even land you in jail. We recommend leaving it to the experts!
Let Your Friend at the Beach Plan it For You!
You’ve decided you’ll take the path of least resistance and let the experts take care of your bonfire. Now what? If you’re staying in a Your Friend at the Beach vacation rental, you’re in luck!
