Seaside is a vibrant beach community located in South Walton county between Panama City Beach and Destin along the Scenic Highway 30-A. A popular vacation retreat due to its close proximity to shopping, restaurants and outdoor activities, Seaside is known for its pastel homes, extraordinary beaches, and for being one of the first New Urbanism developments in the United States. Situated on 80 acres, this beach side retreat is home to 423 residences, over 3 dozen retail shops & 12 restaurants.
Studied by design professionals and architectural schools worldwide, the master planned community of Seaside is a potpourri of housing styles, from southern cottages with wide front porches, to Victorian, all while being visually appealing.
Founded in 1981, developer Robert Davis envisioned a community where people would gather, relax and enjoy a simpler way of life. He wanted to re-create a slower lifestyle reminiscent of the summer days he spent here with his grandparents. Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company visited several Southern cities and designed Seaside based on Davis’ ideas. Seaside contains a thriving downtown that attracts residents and tourists from the nearby, more secluded beach towns, including Seagrove to the east and Watercolor to the west.
Seaside Real Estate & Amenities
As part of an inaugural New Urban community, Seaside is designed with traditional principles in mind. This includes not only an active city center with a prominent cultural and civic presence but also a town with bike paths and walking trails which provides access to all points of interest within Seaside easily accessible. Yet this beach town was developed with the look and feel of an older village, as if it has been around for decades. It was not intended to resemble a modern tract home development, yet the included amenities are top of the line.
When not at the beach or enjoying one of the many outdoor sports activities, residents can visit the twice-weekly Farmer’s Markets, summer concert series, Stories by the Sea, as well as outdoor movies, holiday parades and a host of other activities.
Visitors and homeowners alike have easy access to their favorite beaches through The Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport. It is only 30 miles to Seaside. The airport designation is ECP, and is the first international airport built in the U.S. since 2011.
