A destination known worldwide. The town of Seaside serves as an icon of the New Urbanism movement with its “human-scale” layout that includes accessible public spaces and imminently walkable streets. Enjoy a basket of shrimp and a Red Stripe under the pavilion overlooking the turquoise waters of the Gulf. Wander through Seaside’s fabulous boutiques and restaurants. Discover the shaded sand paths that wind throughout Seaside and open onto secret pocket parks. It’s all right there, waiting to be explored by foot or bicycle. Charming cottages surround Seaside Square, where you’ll find one-of-a-kind amenities, shops, and restaurants––from a professional theatre to award-winning dining at Bud & Alley’s restaurant or BBQ bought through an Airstream window. Shop for farm-fresh produce and locally-produced goods at the Seaside Farmers Market in the summer, or gather with family to watch Santa Claus light the Christmas tree in the fall. Wherever you go, the sugar-soft sand and turquoise waters of the Gulf are steps away. By any measure, Seaside is as much an experience as a destination.
