Seaside, Florida, is a vibrant, energetic town filled with new adventures around every corner. Founded in 1981 by Robert and Daryl Davis, Seaside has become the poster child for the New Urbanism architecture movement.
A gorgeous, walkable community, filled with civic spaces that host movie nights and farmer’s markets, it’s the perfect place to stay with your family and friends.
Seaside has also become the unofficial “downtown” to the 30A community, with people flocking to more than 50 retail and restaurant locations. With the delicious restaurants, exciting events hosted nightly, and convenient beach access, it’s no wonder that Seaside is one of the most popular communities to stay in on 30A.
