2021 Perfect in South Walton Awards

Perfect takes on many shapes and sizes. From cocktails, events and locally owned boutiques to restaurants, small businesses and outdoor adventures, perfect is a feeling that resonates in your heart.

South Walton's 16 unique beach neighborhoods, sugar-white sand and turquoise water certainly are picture perfect, but at the heart of our community are the people, places and activities that we celebrate.

The Perfect in South Walton Awards give locals and visitors a chance to shine a spotlight on their South Walton favorites. This year, a total of 42,097 votes were tallied, and the results are in!
