Seaside is a quaint resort community established in 1981 on the Gulf of Mexico along Florida’s famed scenic Hwy 30A. It’s known for its late-20th-century New Urbanist design, as well as pastel-colored houses featuring porches and white picket fences.
A series of striking pavilions mark the access points to the long sandy beach. Shops and restaurants cluster in the town center. Just west, Grayton Beach State Park has trails and a coastal dune lake.
Seaside reflects a simpler time, when walking was the preferred means of getting around, meals were shared with family and friends, stories entertained, and people gathered often. Seaside is truly a vibrant and evolving community united in the belief that life is enhanced when people interact, learn from one another and share life experience.
The truly unique and diverse collection of shops and restaurants, coupled with year-round festivals, enhance the distinctive Seaside lifestyle and make it the the heart of the 30A area.
