Pastel beach houses and Airstream Row help make Seaside an iconic beach town.
Color, one-of-a-kind architecture and coastal charm come to life in the town of Seaside, known as the birthplace of the New Urbanism architectural design movement. Whether you choose to explore this iconic beach community by bike or on foot, you’ll find plenty of sights to see. Seaside is known for its pastel-colored beach houses, iconic whitewashed post office, and architect-designed walkways leading to the sugar-white sand – a town so picture-perfect that it served as the backdrop for Jim Carrey’s hit movie, The Truman Show.
Seaside is a gathering spot where families and friends come together to enjoy local art galleries, shop at boutiques and scour through records and books at Central Square Records and Sundog Books. With live music in the open-air amphitheater and performing arts at The REP theatre, Seaside will never leave you yearning for something to do.
The New Urbanist community is home to festivals and events throughout the year, as well as a weekly farmer’s market. Fresh, coastal cuisine is on the menu whether you choose to dine in a casual beachfront eatery like Bud and Alleys or at one of the retro food trailers along Airstream Row. With everything from barbecue and 100-layer donuts to creative crepes, there’s a flavor for everyone in this casual collection of food trucks. And with longtime favorites like Great Southern (try the Grits a Ya Ya) and Modica Market (your one-stop shop for pantry staples, delicious sandwiches and homemade desserts) foodies will have their hands full.
Take a stroll through Seaside. Adventure awaits.
