Near the center of town there is a whole row of food trucks offering just about anything you could want. Plenty of narrow little tree lined streets to stroll down ’til your hearts content. And plenty of unique shops and art to browse through for days. Added bonus: The Truman Show was filmed here. Continue reading “Seaside, FL”
