What's the best beach town in Florida?

We mentioned it briefly above, but Seaside is a small beach town in Florida that holds a special spot in our hearts. Seaside is a unique waterfront community in Florida that has quietly become one of the most coveted vacation destinations in the state. In addition to incredible boutiques, charming retailers (including an independent bookstore and record shop), and an adorable grocery, the town's Central Square is home to a world of cuisine, from fine dining restaurants to a lineup of food trucks on Airstream Row, and has been listed as one of the most beautiful spaces in the world. The location of the picture-perfect town of Seahaven in "The Truman Show," Seaside is one of the most idyllic coastal locales in the country; and unlike its fictional counterpart, Seaside is the real deal and as good as it gets.

What's the most historic of all the small towns in Florida?

St. Augustine often gets overshadowed by Florida's big names like Miami and Orlando, but this town really does deserve your attention. The epitome of Old Florida, St. Augustine is a place of fascinating history and culture. Dating back 450 years, St. Augustine is one of the country's oldest and most historic cities, and places like Castillo de San Marcos National Monument celebrate its legacy. But the town is more than just historical sites and museums; its downtown district along Aviles Street -- the oldest street in the country, in fact -- has amazing local shops, incredible restaurants, and top-rated distilleries, making for a wholly delightful experience.
