With many years of parking and traffic studies and an entire season of hourly parking, we will continue our pay-by-the-hour parking structure for the 2023 season.
As families and friends plan to vacation in SEASIDE® this year, we anticipate a bustling town center, filled with award-winning shopping and dining, enjoyed by those staying in Seaside and other 30A communities. Whether you’re driving in for the day, planning to bike into town for the afternoon, or catching our complimentary shuttle, there’s an easy way for everyone to get to Seaside.
After numerous parking and traffic studies, input from well-renowned parking consultants, and three implementations of various paid parking methods, the pay-by-the-hour rate structure launched in 2022 offered the most flexibility and ease of use for our guests. Beginning March 1, the hourly paid parking program will be in effect. Parking rates will vary by day, occupancy levels, and events. This allows us to maintain proper vacancy levels so visitors have available parking to use and ensures that the parking is most efficiently managed.
Similar to last year, the paid parking experience will have guests park their vehicle on Smolian Circle. Upon arrival, you will notice signs placed around Smolian Circle letting you know what zone you have parked in. Input your license plate number and payment information, then head into Seaside to enjoy your day! We encourage visitors to download The Passport Parking app in advance for a simple parking experience. The Passport Parking App can be downloaded here.
The below map outlines the location of hourly parking along Smolian Circle and the complimentary 1-hour and 15-minute parking for quick stops.
Please note, if you are staying in SEASIDE® Town Center, the vacation rental agency you booked with will provide you with a parking pass that allows parking in the areas for the duration
of your stay. In addition to our hourly parking program, we have increased the number of shuttles, bike racks, and golf cart spaces. Our complimentary shuttle services pick up on the east side of Highway 283 in Grayton Beach, across from the Shops of Grayton, in a public parking lot. Park in the lower lot and the shuttle will arrive within 15 minutes and drop guests off under the Lyceum Archway in the center of SEASIDE®. The shuttle is available to guests and employees and runs daily from 6 a.m. to midnight. See the map below on where to catch the shuttle and the route.
