If you've ever been to Seaside, the chances are, you loved it. Seaside is a beautiful town located right on the Gulf of Mexico that features a laidback coastal atmosphere.

Great Places to Eat
Seaside has so many incredible restaurants, which makes it such a fun place to visit.

There's an adorable independent bookstore, record shop, toy store, tons of clothing boutiques, and more. If you love to shop til you drop, Seaside is the perfect place to vacation.
Like most of the communities in South Walton, Seaside is a relatively newer neighborhood. However, this beach town still has that classic coastal southern charm everyone loves. Seaside is built around a town center, and every home in town is located no more than a five-minute walk away from it. Even the color scheme throughout the town was carefully designed by the master architect, Robert Davis. The homes closer to the Gulf of Mexico are lighter pastel colors, while the homes further north are brighter and more saturated. In fact, the town looks so charming that the blockbuster hit, "The Truman Show" was filmed there.
While Seaside has tons of gorgeous beach houses, amazing restaurants, and cool places to shop, the sugar-white sand and turquoise water truly draws visitors to the area. Seaside is the perfect place to take your family over spring break, summer vacation, or a holiday stay.
In conclusion, it's obvious why Seaside is one of Southern Living's top 15 places to visit in Florida.
