Oh Seaside! Who else is a fan of the Truman Show? Because this quaint beach community is the actual location of the town from the film!
This is one of my favorite places to visit. A must-eat would be Great Southern. I love their shrimp and grits. They put a delicious spin on all your southern favorites.
The square also offers other delicious eats and cute shops! My favorite store is Willow! They also have a location in Rosemary Beach! The Seaside square also hosts concerts and entertainment throughout the summer.
Favorite desert stop would have to be Blue Mountain Creamery in Blue Mountain! I can never get enough of their award-winning chocolate ice cream! Their waffle cones are also made fresh daily!

One-shoulder DRESS (only $23!) Pom pom HAT. JADEtribe Beach BAG --available for giveaway on my Instagram!!
Emily was too sweet to let me borrow this dress for my beach trip! It's my very favorite of all her dresses, and since she's pregnant she was nice enough to let me play dress-up! Maybe I should make her come to New York to get it back! Shop this dress HERE.
Free People dress (with built-in shorts) PLAYSUIT. This comes in blue & pink! I absolutely LOVE this piece! All the luxury of wearing a dress but the casual-ness of a romper!
This photo is taken right outside of my all time FAVORITE 30A restaurants--Chan's Wine World in Watercolor! They have such a great menu for lunch and dinner--complete with salads, sandwiches, pizza and more! I am a huge fan of the Baby Blue salad and the chicken salad sandwich.
This swim top is from Triangl, and the shorts are already linked to this post! I got my coconut from the 30A Coconut Hut in Seaside! It's such a cute place and they sell coconut water in actual coconuts. I had strawberry added to mine! YUM!
Don't miss out on my giveaway happening over on my Instagram on this GREAT JADEtribe bag! It's the perfect beach or around-town bag! Giveaway winner will be announced on Saturday at 3:00 p.m. so hurry and register! This bag is valued at $200!
This picture was taken at the iconic Red Bar in Grayton Beach. This 30A staple is only a short bike ride from our beach house, and a place we never miss out on. They have a board menu with about 5 items and live music every night! You better go early because the wait can be long, but I promise you won't be disappointed, and you'll be coming back again next time you're in town!
Another newer hotspot to each in Grayton beach is Chiringo! I tried it for the first time last week and was highly impressed! The menu is your typical beach food but with an organic twist!
This is a picture of the house my parents built. I think my mom did a fabulous job designing it! We have so much fun riding bikes and laying out. I never seem to get tired of my visits here.
I think it's time you booked your trip to 30A! I truly believe it is one of the most beautiful places our country has to offer. There is no place I have ever felt more relaxed or at ease. The people are happy and friendly, the food is delicious, there are countless outdoor activities to partake in and the beach is unbelievably gorgeous.
I'll give an update on Alys beach and Rosemary in upcoming posts!
I hope you all plan a beautiful, relaxing vacation! I'm sure you need it! xx
