We took a few days at the end of August to get away and celebrate my husband’s birthday. One of our favorite places to go is the Gulf Coast in Florida. The beaches are amazing, the water is warm, and the food is wonderful. It is the perfect place to relax and get away from everything for a few days!
This time we decided to stay in Seaside, FL. It’s a quaint little town with a relaxed feel along scenic 30A. It’s a planned community with beautiful beach homes, a town center with shops, restaurants, Airstream food trucks, an outdoor amphitheater, and the cutest little Post Office. And in case you didn’t know, the movie The Truman Show starring Jim Carrey was filmed there back in 1998.
We stayed in a beautiful 2 bedroom condo above the shops in the town center. Our balcony overlooked the Airstream food trucks and we were directly across 30A from one of the entrances to the beach. The name of our condo was Trésor de la Mer and we rented it through Sunburst Beach Vacations. The condo was fully equipped with everything we needed and was perfect for the 2 of us. The second bedroom included a set of bunk beds so it would be great for a smaller family.
Our condo was directly across 30A from an entrance to the beautiful beach. The sunsets on the Gulf are always amazing!
Beautiful skies or storms rolling in…everything is better at the beach!!
I didn’t get pictures of our food – what was I thinking?? – but we ate well in Seaside! One of our favorite restaurants is Great Southern Cafe. The Airstream Food Trucks have several yummy choices including Five Daughters Bakery and The Meltdown on 30A that has wonderful and different grilled cheese sandwiches. There is also a really great little market called Modica Market that has breakfast, sandwiches, and dessert (oh, the cakes!) as well as any other necessity you might need during your visit.
We are fortunate that it is only about a 5-6 hour drive to get to the Gulf. We try to go to the beach at least once a year – it is definitely our happy place!
Thanks for stopping by,
