COVID-19 Response

As South Walton continues to navigate the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, the safety of our residents and visitors is at the forefront of our minds. We've created a COVID-19 travel updates page on our website to share the latest information related to accommodations, restaurants, events, travel safety and how to support South Walton. This page is updated regularly as new information becomes available. 

Monthly TDT Information

Tourist Development Tax collection showed an 85.23% decrease in South Walton for April 2020 compared with the previous year. This decrease can be directly attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic and the governor's ban on vacation rentals. 

The Tourist Development Tax, or bed tax, is a five percent tax collected on hotels, condos and other short term rentals. It is the best way to gauge visitation and demand trends in South Walton. The revenue supports tourism marketing and beach operations including cleaning and maintaining beaches, lifeguards, destination improvements and preservation initiatives.
