Venture a few miles east on Scenic Highway 30A from the laid-back village of Grayton Beach to the town of Seaside, the heart of Highway 30A. Recently named "Best Beach on Earth for Families" and featured in "Top 10 Best Beach Towns in Florida", Seaside is a magical, vibrant and unpretentious beach town, famous for its unique architecture. Turquoise waters, sugar white sand, quaint stores and cozy cafés welcome you to this vibrant town, where the streets are lined with restaurants, shops and galleries, and vintage airstream trailers that serve hotdogs and shaved ice.
A pedestrian town, everything in Seaside is accessible by foot or bicycle. Explore the colorful neighborhood of pastel colored homes, bike ride along the beach road, or head downtown to the artists' colony to view the works of local artisans. Attend an outdoor concert under the stars at the Seaside Amphitheatre or sip wine and sample local fare at the Farmer's Market. Be sure to explore the Scenic Highway 30A by bike along the Timpoochee Trail, an 18 mile bike path that runs along the scenic highway to Rosemary Beach, passing towering pine forests, white sand dunes, and beautiful lakes.
