An unincorporated community in Walton County

Santa Rosa Beach is a coastal town in the Florida Panhandle, located in Walton County. It is known for its scenic beauty, white sand beaches, and turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It is a popular destination for outdoor activities such as fishing, boating, and beach sports. The town also offers a range of shopping, dining, and entertainment options, as well as many rental properties, including beach homes and resorts.

Santa Rosa Beach has a rich and diverse history that dates back to the indigenous peoples who lived in the area for thousands of years. The area was later explored by Spanish conquistadors and eventually became part of the United States through the Louisiana Purchase in 1803.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the town of Santa Rosa Beach was established as a center of commerce and tourism, serving as a hub for the lumber and turpentine industries. The first bridge connecting Santa Rosa Beach to the mainland was built in the 1920s, which helped to further boost the area's growth.

During the 1930s and 1940s, Santa Rosa Beach became a popular destination for tourists, especially those from the Midwest, who were attracted to the area's mild climate and scenic beauty. Many of the town's historic structures, including the Eden Gardens State Park and the Fletcher C. Hewes House, were built during this time and still stand today.

In the latter half of the 20th century, Santa Rosa Beach experienced rapid growth and development, with many new homes and commercial establishments being built in the area. Today, Santa Rosa Beach is a thriving community that continues to attract visitors from all over the world with its stunning natural beauty, rich cultural heritage, and relaxed, coastal lifestyle.
