Seaside Northern Beaches - Atmosphere of Seaside, Oregon
Virtual Tour of Seaside, Oregon Coast
With its beautiful promenade (built in the 20s), a long stretch of wind-sheltered beach, its charming streets, its somewhat kooky carnival atmosphere and a lengthy history of being one heck of a party town, Seaside has something for just about anyone.
Portlanders have vacationed here for more than six generations, creating a history that is rich and colorful. The promenade – more than a mile long - is proof of this, as are the visits to this area by explorers Lewis and Clark. Well, sort of, anyway. There is a monument to the pair sitting in the middle of the picturesque and famed Turnaround.
There's more than meets the initial look at this town, however.
