I live in Panama City Beach, so I get to visit 30A pretty much any time I want (lucky me!), but I've often wondered which community would be the best place to stay as a visitor. Seaside seems like an easy choice, since it's kinda the center of everything, but Grayton Beach, Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, Watersound and other communities have some attractive options.

If you've stayed somewhere along 30A, tell us about your experience and what you liked or didn't like about where you stayed.
