Peter and I drove to Seaside on 30A or also called Scenic 98 a while back and took a return trip with our friend, Kathi, two days ago.
All the communities along 30A have their own personalities and "look." We liked Seaside the best because it appeared to be the most active. Not so overly active that it drove me completely insane. Just enough to give it a comfortable "buzz."
The best part of Seaside was the surprise called The Ruskin Shops.
I also saw these cute little Coke bottles and wanted to buy one even though they cost way too much (resort prices, ya know) and then Petey reminded me that they sell them at Village Market in Allegan. For waaaay less. Really? bummer
