WaterColor is nestled between Grayton Beach State Park, Western Lake and Seagrove Beach, and wraps around the neighboring town of Seaside. Watercolor is one of a handful of planned “New Urban” communities that define Scenic 30A. The picturesque neighborhoods and storefronts integrate with our beautiful natural landscape. Elegant homes line the beach next to the stately WaterColor Inn, and residential streets fan out into the beautiful coastal forest of oaks, pines, magnolias, cypress and palmetto.

The Town Center extends north and south of Scenic 30A. It's a lively area that hosts all types of events, from art shows, to wine tastings, to kid-centered fun. Here, you can rent a bike, visit a gallery, do some shopping or grab a delicious meal. Fish out of Water is a centerpiece restaurant with a great Gulf front view located in the WaterColor Inn.

WaterColor is home to many of our favorite community festivals and events open to the public such as Art in the Park (Mar), Easter Celebration, Easy on 30A Concert (Jul), Fall Festival, MountainFilm Tour (Nov), Turkey Trot, Old Florida Holiday Winter Market and even more town happenings for resort guests such as concerts and movies in the park.
