About Seaside Florida

In Seaside Florida you can walk or bike anywhere. You don’t need a car. The narrow cobblestone streets are lined with charming beach cottages, white picket fences, and picturesque storefronts.

In the center of town there’s a field that hosts a weekly farmer’s market, outdoor concerts, and movies under the stars.

Around the town square are renowned restaurants, quiet cafes, gourmet food trucks, stylish clothing boutiques, art galleries and a quaint book and record store. There’s also the famous Modica Market with every gourmet grocery item you could ever dream of. They even have coffee ice cream made with beans roasted at the local coffee shop.

It’s the idyllic life.

Seaside Florida Rentals

Seaside is not like other commercialized beach towns. There are no skyscraper hotels or giant condominiums. Instead there are quiet, cobblestone streets with pastel-colored beach cottages and white picket-fences. Instead of being cramped in a tiny hotel room, it feels like you’re actually living at the beach.

Great Southern Cafe

Stinky’s Fish Camp

This Key Lime Pie from Stinky’s Fish Camp is without a doubt one of the best things I have ever eaten. Not just one of the best key lime pies I have ever tasted, but of the BEST THINGS I have ever eaten, ever. It is pure heaven. It’s the perfect combination of sweet and tart with the perfect texture and ratio of pie to crust.

If you are ever within 100 miles of this place, no matter how full you are, this key lime pie is a MUST order. You can even call ahead and get a whole pie to go!

These doughnuts are so famous in Seaside Florida that they are usually sold out every morning by 9 AM! We got there right when they first opened at 6:30 AM and there was already a line!

Fortunately we were still able to get one of each doughnut they had.

The raspberry and blueberry filled doughnuts were amazing!! I usually don’t like jam-filled doughnuts because the filling tastes too sweet and fake, but these were perfect!

They had a delicious red velvet doughnut and an old fashioned doughnut as well.
