Welcome to Seaside

The welcoming, effortless place you’ll always want to return to.

There are one-time holiday destinations, the places you visit once, and check off your bucket list. And then, there are the rare and special places where one feels so comfortable, so connected, so at home, that there is no other option but to come back, year after year. It’s a destination that becomes familiar, yet returning to it becomes an exciting tradition, not a repetitive act. Seaside is not a one-time experience.

A community-inspired town

Seaside is a community-inspired, family-friendly, all-people-friendly, all-year-round fun and inviting destination. Its open spaces, pedestrian brick roads, and places of business, were all built with a collective intention so people could walk, move, and gather freely. This was the first New Urbanist town for a reason because, from the beginning, it intended to create a deep sense of community while honoring local ecology.
