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.

The Alys Beach

Alys Beach

nature trail is a well kept secret that not many visitors are aware of. The trail is nestled in 22 acres of preserved wetlands within the Alys Beach community and is a 3/4 mile long boardwalk trail that takes walkers on a little adventure into nature! The trail was designed to give hikers space to view with the largest overview. The trail ofers sights of pitcher plants, cypress domes, titi trees and flowering shrubs and wildflowers. Displays along the path educate walkers about the lants and wildlife that live in the area! It’s a flat, easy walk and would be great for older folks who are interested in natural Florida.
