SEASIDE CELEBRATES 35 YEARS!

Share Button

This past January was Seaside’s 35th Anniversary! It may be difficult to remember the days when County Road 30A wasn’t packed with summer homes.  But there was a time,  a few decades ago when it was just sand and beautiful water.  Monica Market and Bud & Alley’s were in the middle of it all, and they are still here!

The idea of Seaside started in 1981 with the notion of reviving Northwest Florida’s building tradition, wood frame cottages, sleeping porches and lots of windows for cross ventilation. A sensible beach town that would have all the neccessities and pleasures of daily existence within walking distance of one’s residence.

Robert Davis, Seaside founder said, “we just wanted to create a place for people who want to share time and not just let time rush by.” Today downtown Seaside incorporates an array of delightful restaurants and interesting shops.  Now there are more than 480 homes, many of which are available for rent.Toes in sand

Whether it is for a weekend, a week, or a lifetime, Seaside must be savored long enough to let time slow down and allow cares to float away on the beautiful blue-green water.

Questions? Just let us know, we would love to share our knowledge of Seaside and 30A with you.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO INLET BEACH?

Share Button

It’s gorgeous, modern and very upscale, Inlet Beach has blossomed into one of the fastest growing areas at the eastern end of scenic 30A! I remember when I first discovered Inlet Beach, it was so small that if you blinked ~ you missed it! Just a handful of old traditional Florida cottages, you know, the ones that were painted sea foam green and made out of concrete blocks!

Now most of those are gone, even the little pine cottage that used to stand where ‘30Avenue’ is now. The development was a slow one and in my opinion, they’re doing a spectacular job.

Inlet Beach is located between Rosemary Beach and Panama City Beach just east of Scenic Highway 30A and on the Gulf of Mexico. It has the largest public beach access in South Walton. One of the few places one can watch the sun rise and set all from your beach chair. Come explore Inlet Beach, you will be amazed.

www.hub30a.com

The Hub, opening sometime this year, is a new town center for the currently under-construction 30A community of Prominence. Prominence will be located between Camp Creek and Seagrove Beach. On the Hub’s website, it says that it will include a general store and different restaurants offering different cuisines such as burgers, tacos, and fried chicken. It will also include “Mr. Freeze,” complete with frosty treats. The community of Prominence itself is set to be revealed in phases. The first phase will include single-family homes as well as townhomes on the south side of 30A. A few phases in, they will also begin construction on the north side to complete the Prominence community. Once complete, Prominence will contain The Hub as well as a resort-type pool house, complete with cabanas. At LP30A, we’re super excited to see what Prominence and The Hub have in store!
