Seaside: Is a bike friendly, walking friendly, family friendly, things to do smorgasbord inside three miles! Our historic boardwalk is called the Promenade where you can safely and easily stroll the town spanning a mile and a half from north to south. On the south side of town, you will find the North West hiking destination of Tillamook Head and an amazing west coast renowned surfing spot the "COVE" that will host beginner waves in the summer and expert challenging waves in the winter. On the north side of town is the confluence of two great steelhead and crabbing rivers that run through town. This estuary is home to a variety of birds including the highly entertaining bald eagle. They love to show up around lunchtime for a fish snack. Look up Seaside High School and utilize the parking/viewing area right behind it. Great for wave watching or you can stroll the beach to the river mouth easily from the prom.
Our little town is able to sustain great shopping and dining options due to our convention center which helps bring visitors to town year-round. If you are planning a large event you cannot beat their service and cost as this facility is funded by the city for the purpose of keeping the town bustling in the wintertime. Right in the center of town and running through the heart of downtown you will find a fantastic main drag called "Broadway" where kids will enjoy more ice cream and candy shop options than their stomachs can handle along with an expansive arcade, indoor carousel, and world-class bumper cars. For the adults, you will find all kinds of treasure on Broadway including clothing stores for men, and women.
Outside of the city center, you will find a cafe called Osprey Cafe on the south side near the golf course which serves breakfast for a great value while watching the locals tee off on the first hole.
