For years while I lived in Atlanta, I would drive to Seaside, rent a different house each year and stay from Thanksgiving till Christmas. It was a great place to get away after a long year.
Seaside was one of the original "New Urban" communities and has attracted many artist and visitors over the years. The architecture is unique, since every house is required to have 1/3 of all square footage in porches and a picket fence unique to the community.
The community is dog friendly and Seaside beach is the only beach in Florida where dogs are allowed. The sugar fine sand is a great place to play year round.
All photos here are from other sources. We will be her for a month and I look forward to walking the streets and documenting one of my favorite towns anywhere. More to come. -L
