CAA Valentine Tour of Homes

CAA Valentine Tour of Homes Brings Creativity and Design Inspiration

Valentine’s weekend typically means romantic dinners and flowers for most, but for South Walton residents and visitors alike, it signals the highly anticipated annual Valentine Tour of Homes presented by the Cultural Arts Alliance (CAA) of Walton County. The tour is known for providing a rare opportunity to enter some of South Walton’s most interesting residences showcasing stunning interiors, acclaimed architectural design and picturesque settings, which are sure to bring inspiration to tour goers’ winter beach weekend.

This annual event will open the doors to six gorgeously designed South Walton homes to participants on Saturday, Feb.17 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 18 from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.

Guests take a self-guided tour of a variety of homes and are also introduced to some of the CAA’s member artists whose work is featured in each of the homes. All net proceeds benefit the CAA’s ‘Art For All’ Program, which provides support to Walton County schools, teachers, students, artists and arts organizations to further arts education in the community.

The 2018 Homes on the Tour include an incredible multi-lot, gulf-front compound in Inlet Beach as well as five exquisite homes in the communities of Alys Beach and Rosemary Beach. Off-site parking is required for homes in Rosemary Beach. Event goers are asked to park in Shades Bar & Grill parking lot and a complimentary shuttle by Gulf Coast Go will be provided to the Rosemary Beach homes.

New to the event this year is a bonus stop at the Grayton Beer Company Tap Room.  Local craft beers and delicious bites will be available for purchase beginning at Noon both days.

This event would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors including A Boheme DesignBeau InteriorsCoastal LuxuryGrayton Beer CompanyShades Bar & Grill, Southside SliceThe Pointe, and Linda Miller, the Smile of 30A.
