The town that knows no stranger. Known for its tight-knit sense of community, its Gulf breezes and its picket fences, Seaside is the beach town of beach towns — an icon. A shared dream between a grandfather and grandson gave rise to 30-A’s most notable community back in 1981 when Robert Davis designed and oversaw the construction of a town that aimed to seamlessly tie itself together with a common sense of community. Davis’ dream was a “simple, beautiful life”. While the town’s architecture dabbles in Victorian, Charleston and Antebellum styling, the main influence was the small towns that dotted the pre-WWII world — a time when it was common to see people walking, talking and shopping in their communities. Time wasn’t rushed and conversation was king. One of the community’s main draws is The Seaside School, which draws students from all over Walton County. The Seaside School is one of the state’s first charter schools and blends its curriculum with the town’s founding principles. With actors taking the stage, the 75-seat Seaside Repertory Theatre always finds the recipe to make us smile, laugh, cry and dream. From Shakespeare to Charlotte’s Web, the Rep’s stage represents the best of the best. Seaside experienced mainstream fame when it was featured in the 1997film “The Truman Show,” featuring Jim Carrey. While the film may have helped to boost Seaside’s popularity, the small-town feel, friendly smiles, and sense of community is what won people over. Come see what Seaside has to offer. You will leave enchanted.
