Today, we continue highlighting the many fun February South Walton and Destin events. For those with a love of art, interior design and architecture, the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County (CAA) 2013 Valentine Tour of Homes, Feb. 16 & 17, is a special treat.

The CAA's annual event will open the doors to six distinct and diverse South Walton homes, including the stunning Seaside home of Barbara Bradley Baekgaard, co-founder of Vera Bradley, which was featured in 30A Style. Additional homes on the tour include a Certified Platinum Florida Green Home in Alys Beach, a gulf-front home part of the Residences at Hotel Viridian in Seagrove Beach, a historic home on Western Lake in Grayton Beach, a low-country style home in Cypress Dunes and a contemporary home in Point Washington, featuring the artwork of Margo Russell.

The home tour is conveniently located near many of our South Walton and Destin vacation rentals. The best part is you'll be touring for a good cause. The proceeds from the self-guided annual Valentine Tour of Homes benefit the CAA’s Educational Giving Program, which provides over $20,000 in grants to Walton County teachers and scholarships for students. 

To learn more about the homes on the tour, check out the recent article in the Walton Sun . Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the event. Tickets can be purchased online at CulturalArtsAlliance.com or call 850-622-5970.
