David Rauschkolb is the co-founder of the famous Bud & Alley’s restaurant group in the heart of Seaside, Florida. Bud & Alley’s is routinely cited as one of the best beach bars in the nation, if not the entire world.

30A Radio recently sat down with Dave to talk about his early days as a restaurateur, when there were only 12 homes in the tiny beach town. He also shares his passion for surfing, what it means to be a waterman, and his role as a community and global activist.

We look forward to talking with you about your perfect beach vacation and how we can simplify every step of your planning. Stay on 30A, and forget where you’re from. 30Acottages.com
