Although there are plenty of books written about New Urbanism, no town can hold a candle to the shining example that is Seaside. Hailed as one of Travel + Leisure magazine’s “Best Beaches on Earth” for families, this picture-perfect community lit up the big screen in The Truman Show. But this beach neighborhood has plenty of personality to go with its beautiful design.

There’s a profound sense of community, a family-friendly feel, and a whimsical sense of fun that will permeate your entire visit. An outdoor amphitheatre. A nationally acclaimed wine festival. A local repertory troupe. When it comes to pairing beauty and the beach, the folks in Seaside have, well… made an art of it.
