The Big Chill: A 30A Essential

Updated: Mar 24

As tourists trickle in with summer slowly approaching, public 30A Facebook pages and groups are popping off with inquiries of all kinds. What is the water like? Is the Red Tide in the area? Where are the best bars? What is a must-see. Well, just ask a local and you will hear an enthusiastic "The Big Chill!"

Formerly known as The Hub 30A, The Big Chill was established in 2014 and is a large group of restaurants and shops that tourists can wander through looking for what best piques their interest. An amazing cross between an outdoor mall and a food court, this pet-friendly space is complete with bars, eateries, covered patio, and stage.

When it comes to food, the vendor's at The Big Chill offer a little bit of everything. Enjoy barbeque at the Local smoke or fresh seafood at Chef Bucalo's Hooked Seafood. There's Macho Taco, Nectar Coffee, and Duo's All American Eats. Wrap it all up with a sweet treat from Mr. Freeze's!

The Big Chill is a shopping connoisseur's paradise! Drop the kiddo's off at Build-a-Bear and head over to Lens Bar to upgrade your shades! You can browse amazing selection at Nicole Paloma, Anthea, High Tide, and Adaro Art. Pamper yourself at Polished 30A Nail Bar while friends check out the bikes at Frankie's Bike Shop. There are even more shops and stores to discuss but we'll leave the discovery up to you.

To even the pickiest tourist, The Big Chill is an essential 30A experience. A trip to this shopping center will have you refreshed and ready to get back out onto the Emerald Coast with your new finds! With an active event calendar, there is always something new and fresh going on a The Big Chill and we can't wait for you to experience it for yourself!
