COASTAL LIVING FEATURES INLET BEACH

Share Button

Coastal Living editors love this area! They actually featured Seaside on their first magazine cover nearly 20 years ago. They have been featuring this area’s shopping, dining, events, and beaches ever since. Did you know that Florida has the most subscribers to Coastal Living than any other state. So if you chance to pick up the December issue, you will find articles about Florida wildlife, collectibles, recipes and great Florida inspired Christmas decor. Especially the article called “Blue Christmas” which features a lovely beach home in Inlet Beach! (I know it’s a little late, but there’s always next year!)

The magazine is truly a fan of 30A beaches. From one end of 30A to the other, you will find the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Charles ans Sarah Modica

was the first business in Seaside and has always been considered the anchor of the Seaside community. Mr. and Mrs. Modica and their family have poured love, dedication and hard work into their business and have been very generous in giving back to the community. Mr. Modica passed away in 2010 and is greatly missed by so very many people who considered him to be a friend. The store is now run by Mrs. Modica and their children, Charles and Carmel.
The ceremony was patriotic, with and opening prayer given by Fr. Tom Collins and a presentation of color by Walton High School ROTC. The Modica grandchildren led the pledge of allegiance and the singing of God Bless America. Speakers talked about Charlie’s genteel manners and his welcoming spirit that made so many feel comfortable and at home. Mr. Modica was referred to as Seaside’s “unofficial mayor” and is greatly missed by so many, but it can be said that his spirit live on.
