Local Tip: (Seaside) Great Southern located in Seaside is perfect for breakfast. Watch the morning come to life from their open air dining porch. Instead of trying to park in the few public parking spaces in Seaside, if you are close enough, jump on the bikes and pedal your way there. Take the #SlowLife approach on the Timpoochee Trail, aka – the bike path running the length of 30A. Or, if you must drive, park in the Van Ness Butler Parking lot tucked between Seaside and WaterColor. Or, (here’s the Local Tip) park in the public lot just north of Grayton Beach and take the shuttle (the one to Seaside, not Grayton) which drops you off just a few a short stroll to Great Southern. The shuttle runs very frequently.
No matter where you choose to go for breakfast on 30A, you’re sure to find delicious food and friendly service. These restaurants are just a few of the many great options available in the area, so be sure to explore and discover your own favorites.
