I am AJ Beddouk with the Emerald Group right here on 30A, Florida. If you are new here and you want more info on 30A and other Emerald Coast cities, go ahead and reach out to us whichever way makes sense for your call, text, email, whatever you want. We have got your back when it comes to moving here to Florida! Today, we are going on a tour of Seaside on 30A in Florida!

On the left would be Natchez street. Note that no two neighboring houses in the Seaside can have the same white picket fence. Turning right on Smolian Cir which leads us to the Seaside Assembly Hall, the Lyceum Lawn, and Seaside Institute, and Seaside Neighborhood School. On the left is Focus Lifestyle Boutique Clothing Store along with Ophelia Swimwear right behind it. There are some more boutiques along this path as well lining Ruskin Place Park so you can enjoy the outdoors in between shopping. On the right, we have the backside of some other clothing stores as well as 45 Central Wine & Sushi Bar, a local favorite, and Heavenly’s Shortcakes & Ice Cream. I know it is a little hard to see, but here on our right is Sundog Books in case you want to do some reading while you are in the area or the mood for a new book! We are turning left here, but just here on our right, you have the Seaside Post Office which is considered Seaside’s Center. Straight-ahead we have the Seaside Swim & Tennis Club, and off to our right on the corner is the Seaside Fitness Center. Make sure you are keeping a keen eye on the roads and traffic patterns when you are driving through Seaside if you are not familiar with the area, there are a few one-way roads snuck in here and you might find yourself going the wrong way if you are not careful!

In keeping with the Urban Development plans, right here on the right, we have the Chapel at Seaside and Forest Street Park on the left. On our left, we have Forest Street Park and further left the Chapel at Seaside which we saw when traveling west, now we are heading east on the one-way Forest drive, and on our right, to the south is DiBicci Park. Right here on this corner on our left is the Seaside Fitness Center. 

Truman Show Gazebo  

Did you know Seaside was where the movie “The Truman Show” was filmed? Check out the Tupelo street gazebo just ahead. 

Right by the fitness center, now on the east side of the Seaside Swim & Tennis Club.  This is Forest St and this is where we start to see a blend happening between Seaside and Seagrove. You will see Seagrove is partial to unpaved roads where Seaside has the cobblestone streets.

Food Trucks and Mural Video

As if there was not enough already here in Seaside, but wait, there is more! There is always something going on here in Seaside and you can always get some delicious and laid back food at one of the vintage airstream food trucks, and check out this mural – this is a tribute to Vincent Scully, a dramatic and passionate teacher and one of Seaside’s early influencers. He passed in 2017, but his memory lives in on this mural and his influence on Seaside’s architecture and design. 

Seaside House Tour

Check out this beautiful beach house on 45 Wakulla Lane in Seaside! This home has 4 bedrooms 3 full bathrooms and 2 half bathrooms. It was built in 2011 and has over 3500 sq feet! This beauty has been decorated in an elegant Victorian style and sits right across from the large croquet lawn and just a very short walk to the tennis center, playground, and two pools. Within minutes to the Seaside Town Center and beach, this house has everything you could be looking for with no expense spared during construction. Bring your whole family with you because one of the bedrooms comfortably fits 4 bunk beds each with its own flat screen tv and DVD player. Are you an avid reader? Bring your books because you have a full library on the second floor just beckoning for you to plunge into another world. If you’re interested in purchasing this place, you are in luck – it is for sale! You can own 45 Wakulla Ln and this incredible experience for $3.2M – just give me a call!
