  • Perfect end to the Summer!!!

    "Changes in Attitude is exactly what happened! We were relaxed and rested after our two week stay in this beautiful home!! I've stayed in Seaside many times, but this was our first time at Changes in Attitude. The home is exactly what I'd hoped for...you feel like you're walking into a magazine! It was just as pictured and very well kept. We stayed with another family and there was plenty of room for all of us and our kids! The kids loved the bunk room, and sleeping in the 3rd floor tower! We all had plenty of private space and wonderful shared spaces. We enjoyed "home" cooking in the well appointed kitchen. Then gathered nightly for meals around the huge rustic dining table, afterward relaxing in the beautiful and comfortable living room! We love the beach in Seaside and spent a lot of time there, but we also LOVE the shops in town, or down the road in Grayton Beach. This home is only a few houses from the walkway over the dunes to the beautiful beach. And after a day at the beach it's an easy stroll home to Changes in Attitude!!! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. (PS: William Jobe you were great! Thanks for answering our millions of inquires!!)"

  • Thanksgiving week

    "We had a great thanksgiving week at Palm Cove. The house is great, the hot tub on the roof is awesome, the kitchen had everything we needed and then some. We experienced a couple of hiccups with cable not working but Ms Betty was very sweet and accommodating."

  • Great time!

    "Our family had a fantastic time! The owner was very helpful and the house was in immaculate shape. The kids loved the food, outdoor music and especially the unique shops in Seaside. A very short walk to the beach but the location was perfect and felt like we were part of a community rather than at a tourist spot. The pool was great and was serviced twice while we were there. Highly recommended destination for those who want a vacation experience like no other. We'll be back!"

  • Perfect Little Home!

    "My family and I loved staying in Seaside and Greenback so much! We walked and biked (rented right in town a few minutes away) everywhere! The house had everything we needed. We loved the way it was decorated and the lay-out. It was also very, very clean and had lots of light from all of the windows. It was perfect for our needs and so much nicer and comfortable than a hotel. The owners and rental agency really think of everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible....hair dryers, washer/dryer, toiletries, lots of hooks everywhere, good kitchen supplies, etc. We liked going out on our balcony to look at the ocean even though it was only a tiny glimpse of it over the tree-tops. The beach was literally across the street and the downtown with food trucks, shops, and restaurants only a few minutes walking distance. We also loved the welcome gifts we received...we didn't expect such a nice surprise! We also appreciated the loveseat that folded out into a twin sized bed for our 6 year old since the master bed was only a queen (as in most of the cottages of this size). Our only regret was not staying longer. Thank you Greenback owners for sharing your sweet little home in this amazing little town! We hope to come back again next year!!"

Seaside Travel Tips

On the Florida Panhandle between Panama City Beach and Destin is the master-planned community of Seaside. Robert S. Davis inherited the land that became Seaside from his grandfather with hopes of converting it into an old-fashioned beach town. Seaside was one of the first cities in America to use New Urbanism design, which promotes walkabilty between neighborhoods and offers several different types of housing.

Waves crash into the Gulf Coast and visitors can swim and play in the clear waters of this Northwest Florida beach destination. The main beach in Seaside is accessible under a tall gray structure that resembles a cross between a pyramid and lighthouse.

Seaside offers visitors with a sense of community and the family-friendly feel is everywhere. The city is home to one of the best beaches on Earth and gained popularity as the filming locadtion for "The Truman Show" starring Jim Carrey.

Seaside Attractions

It's prime location on the Gulf Coast makes Seaside a popular place for visitors. There are three swimming pools, six tennis courts, a world-class croquet lawn and nature walks. Water activities are an obvious must when staying in Seaside. You can have just as much fun as the kids with sand volleyball, sandcastle building, sunbathing, swimming, fishing, snorkeling and a number of other water adventures.

Kids will love a vacation to Seaside where they can learn how to surf and go kayaking, snorkeling, skimboarding, boogie boarding and paddle boarding at Kidz Beach and Surf and Skim Skool.

If you'll be visiting Seaside in March, sign up to be a participant in the Seaside Half Marathon and 5k Race. Runners from all over the country flock to Seaside for the race and each participant receives a medal upon completion. The half marathon will pass through the neighboring communities of Watercolor, Grayton, Blue Mountain Beach and Santa Rosa Beach. You'll run along coastal Highway A30 and take in beautiful views of the water as you progress through the course.

Seaside is very much about creating things and celebrating artists in the community. The whole family will love a trip to The Repertory Theater. It was founded in 2001 and welcomes more than 25,000 visitors every year. The Emerald Coast Theatre Company performs there and is the only professional company on the Emerald Coast. they perform everything from fun kids shows to plays for adults.

In November Seaside hosts the Seeing Red Wine Festival, a nationally-known event. There are testing tents and wine samples from around the world with the option of purchasing your favorites to take home with you. The festival is held on the streets of Seaside and is one of the community's favorites. Tickets for Seeing Red are $120 per person and get you all the wine, food and music you could ever want. Special chefs will also be there to offer demos and samples of some of the best hors d'oeuvres you can find at local restaurants. Other wine events in the Seaside area include Vine to Wine at Seascape Golf, Beach and Tennis Resort, Al Fresco Reserve Tasting in Ruskin Place, Taste of the Beach After Dark in Santa Rosa Beach and Taste of the Beach and Charity Auction in Destin.

Things to Do in Seaside

Shopping: Art galleries, clothing, accessory shops and specialty stores are all over Seaside. Galleries include Fired-Up Pottery Painting, The Justin Gaffrey Studio and Newbill Collection by the Sea.

There are more than 200 performances during the course of the three-day event. This is the only festival of its kind in the area and draws in thousands of attendees every year.

Deer Lake State Park: This park has the same name as a coastal dune lake within the same boundaries. Coastal dune lakes can only be found in the U.S. along the Gulf Coast. There are rare plants such as lupine, spoonflower, pitcher plants and one of the largest populations of Curtiss' sand grass in the state. Visitors to Deer Lake State Park will find this dune ecosystem and animals including migratory birds and butterflies. The beach is easily accessible via boardwalk and has beautiful views.
