Afternoon At Seaside, Florida ~ Save a day for a visit here when you're in Destin!

Seaside is an enchanting little town located just a few miles east of Destin.  It's a fun & whimsical place to explore.  Be sure to save a day while you're in Destin to visit.  It has some quaint restaurants & interesting shops.

was filmed here.

Colorful bikes..... Everyone rides their bike here.

Seaside is cited as an example of successful implementation of New Urbanism.  Time magazine has called it "the most astounding design achievement of its era". It has been used as a model for other new urbanist developments in the US & abroad.
