Even though candy-filled Halloween just passed, there is never a wrong time to indulge in sweet treats. Seeking a sweet destination to do so? South Walton, Florida, is the destination for you, as it is filled with fun candy shops. Round up the family and head to South Walton for a tour of the destination’s delicious sweet shops.


The Candymaker
In Sandestin, The Candymaker is “Florida’s largest candy store.” Handmade and homemade, the offerings include candy apples, pralines and other delicacies. They even have treats for the pup awaiting your return at home.


Pecan Jack’s Ice Creamery & Candy Kitchen
If pralines and toffee are more your sweet tooth’s style, consider Santa Rosa Beach’s Pecan Jack’s Ice Creamery & Candy Kitchen in Santa Rosa Beach. For an edgier twist when satisfying your sweet craving, there’s a selection of boozy pralines!


The Sweet Peddler
Located in Seacrest, The Sweet Peddler is the perfect spot for Jelly Belly fanatics — it offers a Jelly Bell vending machine alongside delicious ice cream options.


The Sugar Shak
Dubbing itself “the most hands-on-touchy-feely candy and ice cream store that is like no other,” The Sugar Shak is Rosemary Beach’s oldest business, established in 1999. Originally incorporated in a tiny shack on highway 30-A, it found its permanent home across the street in 2008.

Eco-Friendly Stocking Stuffers

Arguably the best part of Christmas morning is opening the contents of your stocking. Gifts in these sacks are usually items  you need regularly, from toothbrushes to hand sanitizer, gift cards and warm fuzzy socks. Consider these eco-friendly products to help make the world a better place.

A Suite Ride at The Peninsula Beverly Hills

The Peninsula Beverly Hills makes staying in a suite even sweeter! Guests who book one of the hotel’s elegant suites are offered complimentary use of a luxury BMW for the length of their stay. While Beverly Hills has so much to offer, having a car gives you the freedom to see even more of Southern California, whether it is driving up the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu, or continuing on, past Santa Barbara, to Santa Ynez wine country.
