Visit South Walton has announced the 2022 Perfect in South Walton award winners. The annual awards, now in its eighth

year, are nominated and voted upon by visitors and residents alike and recognizes local restaurants, businesses and events in a variety of categories.

“The Perfect in South Walton awards are a great opportunity for us to celebrate local businesses, to help them feel a little love from locals and visitors who have made great memories thanks to the people working hard to create a special experience for them,” says Visit South Walton Director of Communications Matt Algarin. “It’s one of the ways we support those businesses and help remind visitors of the many reasons they have to come back again.”
