A Day Trip To Seaside

Yesterday over breakfast my husband remembered that he has today off from work, and he proposed we take a little trip. Of course I jumped on the idea! There are a few places within fairly close driving distance that we've been wanting to see, and one of them is Seaside, Florida. It's only about two hours due South, it's another one of those fascinating New Urbanist communities, and it just seems like an absolutely adorable, quaint, Florida town (thanks Dad, for the recommendation!).

So we're setting off early this morning to Seaside for a day trip! We plan to go to some antique shops along the way, eat seafood for lunch and dinner, and breathe in the crisp fall air coming off the ocean. Seaside is also known for being a very artistic community so we may pop into one of its many art galleries. And perhaps a bike ride along the beach? We'll have to see how much we can fit into one day.

I hope you have a beautiful weekend!

p.s. Do you recognize the town from this movie?


  1. Been to seaside MANY times! It is so beautiful!!! You will love it!

  2. Kate, I've seen this town in print but, I've never been there, can't wait to get a recap of your trip. Enjoy! It will be a Caz Youth Soccer- Pink Out (it's an awesome community I live in) and a Breast Cancer 5K run for my all NY Fall weekend.

  3. How cute! I knew it looked familiar but I was thinking of Pleasantville.... I wasn't too far off! Ha! I love day trips. :)

  4. We did! I keep forgetting you're from FL...I think of you as a VA gal :)

  5. Thanks so much Christine!

    So happy to hear about the awesome support you're getting from the Upstate NY community. That warms my heart :) Enjoy your weekend!

  6. I only just recently saw The Truman Show so it was fresh in my mind! Such a fun day.
