Seaside Beach

Planned perfection

Seaside Florida was born out of a notion steeped in romance. Launched by Miami land developer, Robert Davis, Seaside is the fulfillment of a dream to revive Northwest Florida's wood-framed cottages, narrow streets and white picket fences. Seaside's foot-friendly design was the first of its kind, bringing markets, art galleries, shops and restaurants right to its guests. With a half mile of fine white sand, it's the perfect romantic getaway for couples. Imagine a Florida wedding in a brightly white-washed wooden pavilion that opens like a picture frame onto a panoramic unspoiled beach.

Seaside's Gulf-front, Victorian-style cottages seem designed especially for honeymooners, but snowbirds and those looking to relax will also be swept away by Seaside's wistful charm.

Outdoor Focus

The outdoor focus here is living the good life under the sun:

Area Attractions

The town itself is the attraction. An architectural curiosity, with a planned beach community of post-modern homes and cottages situated around the town's amenities, Seaside is as pretty as a picture, and is the perfect place for a beach wedding. The Seaside Interfaith Chapel's 68-foot bell tower is the highest building in the community. The area is best known as the location for Jim Carey's movie The Truman Show, and pieces of the set have been incorporated into Seaside's charm.

Area Events


Elmo's Grill features live entertainment, but a trip to Fort Walton or Destin may be required if you're looking to party.


Seaside Beach has vacation homes and Gulf-front cottages, a motor court and a bed and breakfast. With no towering resorts or buildings more than four stories tall, the views are amazing.
