Seaside Florida Seaside is a New Urbanism planned community on the Florida gulf coast between Destin and Panama City. Founded by progressive Birmingham architect Robert Davis and site location for the movie The Truman Show. It was really nice when it was just a few sparse homes and it gets criticized for being yuppieish but it beats the cement condos lining the rest of Florida hands down. The beach at night is just fantastic and the bookstore and restaurants are cool. Next door state park Grayton Beach offers cheap digs and you can always park in town and Ninja camp in the nearby dunes for free.
