City/town information

Seaside is renowned for its pastel-colored beach bungalows, distinctive whitewashed post office, and architect-designed walkways leading to the sugar-white sand — a picture-perfect town that served as the setting for Jim Carrey's hit film The Truman Show. Seaside is a popular gathering spot for families and friends who want to visit local art galleries, boutiques, and Central Square Records and Sundog Books to browse records and books. Seaside will never leave you wanting for something to do, with live music in the open-air amphitheater and performing arts in The REP theatre. Throughout the year, the New Urbanist community hosts festivals and events, as well as a weekly farmer's market. Whether you lunch at Bud and Alleys, a casual seaside cafe, or one of the retro food trailers along Airstream Row, fresh, coastal cuisine is on the menu. There's something for everyone in this casual array of food trucks, with anything from BBQ and 100-layer pastries to inventive crepes. Foodies will have their hands full with longtime favorites like Great Southern (try the Grits a Ya Ya) and Modica Market (your one-stop shop for pantry necessities, great sandwiches, and homemade desserts).

Seagrove is a favorite among long-time South Walton visitors because of its lush oak trees, magnolias, and laid-back, yet luxury lifestyles. A wide mix of boutiques, casual cafes, and an overall lively attitude compliment the scenery. A trip to Seagrove is full of excitement. Visitors should visit Deer Lake State Park and Eastern Lake because of their proximity, and riding along the Timpoochee Trail near Seagrove is the best way to get around. In 2021, a new Regional Beach Access will open in Seagrove, making it even easier to sink your toes into the sugar-white sand. Dining at Café Thirty-A is a Seagrove tradition. This South Walton institution was among the first to establish a presence along Highway 30A. Seagrove Village Market, not far to the west on Highway 395, is a must-visit for succulent shrimp po boys and good old memories, having been part of the original Seagrove Village Market since 1949. Old Florida Fish House, located to the east (and overlooking the aptly named Eastern Lake), is a great spot for lunch or dinner. You won't want to miss out on their award-winning sushi or live music. Seagrove is the ideal beach community for families seeking for a classic Florida vacation vibe, with plenty of shady nooks, stunning stretches of sun-drenched sand, and plenty of fun to go around.

Grayton Beach is frequently rated as one of America's most beautiful and clean beaches. Fishing and paddling are available at Western Lake, and hikers can trek 4 miles of paths through a coastal forest where scrub oaks and magnolias have been bent and twisted by sea winds. With a stay in one of the well-equipped cabins or a more rustic stay at one of Grayton's small campgrounds, an overnight excursion offers its own distinct experience. Grayton Beach State Park is more than a background for golden sunrises and shimmering moonlit evenings, with approximately 2,000 acres.
