Alys Beach is one of many distinctive beach towns along 30~A founded on the principles of New Urbanism, which emphasizes community and placing amenities in and around homes to promote walking, talking, and a sense of connectedness. It is pronounced Alice and is named after the developer's grandmother. It has a distinct Mediterranean feel and the architecture is simply breathtaking. The first picture was taken from our bike ride and Kyleigh was in the baby seat attached to my bike. She loved taking in all the beautiful scenery:) It was a bit overcast on the day the rest of these were taken but I imagine the pool area has been featured in several publications. The kids loved the playground area and there are even more pictures there:) Very cute area complete with a coffee shop which is always a plus! Believe it or not there are many more pictures to come!
