Seaside Florida in Seagrove Beach
Seaside Florida in the Seagrove Beach area is one of the most recognized beachside cottage communities in the world. Although Seaside is famed in the architectural community for its innovative new urbanistic design, it's perhaps best known as the setting for the 1998 film "The Truman Show." "The Truman Show" may be fictional, but Seaside residents can actually experience their own idyllic lifestyles among the town's quaint seaside cottages, airy porches, white picket fences and resident artist colony.
Location fees from "The Truman Show" paid for construction of the Seaside Neighborhood School, whose auditorium doubles as an assembly hall for the town. Nine beach pavilion stand at the end of the beachfont streets, serving as scenic gateways between land and water.
There are two toddler pools and three large swimming pools located within the community of Seaside. Two of the large pools are family oriented, while the third is an adult-only facility. There are six tennis courts, a horseshoe pit, shuffleboard and a world-class croquet lawn. Other features within Seaside include a local post office, gourmet grocer, antique shops, restaurants, a beachside outdoor market and the Seaside Repertory Theatre which offers outdoor performances as well as indoor plays and late-night improvisation sessions.
The Seaside Institute hosts seminars in architecture and urban design for visiting professionals and community leaders. It also sponsors lectures, concerts, exhibitions and an artist-scholar residency program. Seaside's central piazza is host to numerous free events including Friday movies under the stars, concerts, art shows, flea markets and more throughout the summer and during holidays.
