Crested near the mouth of the Columbia River, it's truly where Oregon's coastal experience begins. At its heart, Seaside's expansive two-mile promenade invites you to stroll unencumbered along the panoramic Pacific Ocean. But what makes it unique, is its extraordinary blend of recreational activities, entertainment and culture. Seaside was the final destination of Lewis and Clark on their journey west and today it is the ideal lodging base for visitors to the newly created Fort Clatsop National Historical Park. This Friendly and walkable town continues to offer something for people of all ages.
So, whether you're interested in exciting beach volleyball and evening cookouts, golfing, horseback riding, exquisite food or shopping sprees through eclectic shops and galleries. Surf the wild waves, kayak with sea lions, canoe, fish for salmon, crab for Dungeness or relax on a paddle boat. Dig for razor clams, beachcomb for Japanese floats and other treasures, take a horseback ride at sunset, build a fire and have a cookout, or attend a world-class beach volleyball tourney.
