Grayton Beach Real Estate and Grayton Beach FL Homes for Sale
With an unofficial slogan like “Nice dogs, strange people,” you definitely know that Grayton Beach is as eccentric as it gets. Established in 1890 by two Army Generals, William Miller and William Wilson, who named it after Army Major Charles T. Gray, Grayton Beach has managed to retain its rustic, relaxing vibe through the years, where you get the feeling things haven’t really changed that much in the last hundred years or so—and that is exactly a large part of its charm.
Described as a “funky little beach town full of free-spirited folks with a laid-back attitude,” Grayton Beach offers an expansive beachfront, unique shops and restaurants brimming with character, and plenty of leisure and recreational activities. But it’s the relaxed pace of life that has attracted long-time residents and visitors to these shores, making it the ideal place for an holiday getaway or an idyllic retreat where you can leave the stress of daily life behind.
