The beachfront community of Seaside is located on a piece of land spanning 80 acres and is considered as the “Downtown” of Scenic Highway 30A. Set apart from all the other beach towns by its simple and fuss-free attitude, The Seaside is a quintessential New Urbanist town wherein great emphasis is placed on green transportation, sustainability, connectivity, mixed-use spaces, and a traditional neighborhood structure.
The community was the brainchild of Robert and Daryl Davis who envisioned a sustainable town drenched in the beauty of The Gulf’s gorgeous sunsets. One of this neighborhood’s claims to fame is being the setting for the popular movie “The Truman Show.”
