With its charming brick-lined streets and cheerfully painted coastal cottages, the iconic town of Seaside set the precedent for all future development along Scenic Highway 30A. Nestled on 80 acres, the community was master-planned to promote a pedestrian lifestyle and became a pioneer of the New Urbanist movement across the nation. A lively town center attracts visitors from near and far with varied dining, boutique shopping, a weekly farmers market and popular annual festivals and events. Community amenities include three swimming pools, a playground, a fitness center, a croquet lawn and six Har-Tru HydroCourts tennis courts. Seaside is also a cultural hub for South Walton with the area’s only professional theater company, a highly regarded charter middle school and the Seaside Institute, a non-profit organization that sponsors performing and visual arts, literary events and educational programs.
