Seaside Treasure Quest V Contest has Now Ended
Tqv CollageWe've tested your sleuthing skills and your creativity and you have risen to the challenge for five years in a row. Our Treasure Quest clues have helped visitors navigate Seaside from some unique perspectives. Questers have shared with us how much fun they have discovering parts of Seaside they might not have found otherwise. Early on, we received so many creative entries we decided to create a new category: "Most Creative Entry." For this year's Treasure Quest V, we created a Grand Prize specially designed for all you creative types. Our creative entries have come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and presentations. We've received photo collages, creatively drawn maps, handmade boxes, poetry about Seaside, and funny homemade videos. The 2013 winning entry for Most Creative was a video about a magical quest through Seaside where the Questers were shrunken and turned into clay figures. Their only way back to normal was to solve the Treasure Quest clues. (Check it out here.) While you certainly don't need to be a filmmaker in order to win, creativity is what takes the big prize package in the Treasure Quest! We are currently processing all of the entries for Treasure Quest V. Winners will be announced here on our website by November 20, 2015.

Fall in Seaside

Bikeprom V.Russell

The weather can be beautiful and dramatic during the fall season. Days can be cool and clear, shrouded in fog, or gray and stormy. A blustery fall day makes for outstanding kite flying. A clear crisp day is perfect for a long walk on the beach or a hike through the forest or golf. Surfing and river kayaking are also popular fall activities. Fall bird migrations make this another busy season for bird watchers. Beginning as early as August, you might encounter large flocks of shorebirds migrating to the south. In September, SOLVE hosts the Fall Beach and Riverside Cleanup and downtown Seaside turns into a car show at the annual Seaside Wheels and Waves gathering of hot rods and custom cars. In November, Seaside's downtown district presents the popular Fall Downtown Wine Walk event.

Seasideordonfrank0004More than Just a Day at the Beach!
Seaside has been the Northwest’s most popular ocean resort for over a century. Located just 90 minutes from Portland, Seaside is a destination paradise for spectacular ocean views, miles of public beach, outdoor activities, year-round events, excellent shopping, and unforgettable dining.

Seaside's 1.5-mile long oceanfront Promenade is perfect for strollers, joggers and bike riders. The wide and sandy beach is available for all kinds of activities, from low rider beach bikes, beach volleyball, and clam digging, to sand castle building, kite flying or a marshmallow roast. Those young at heart will enjoy the carousel, arcades, mini golf, bumper cars, paddle boats and our very own Seaside Aquarium.

Local seafood and Pacific Northwest fare abound in Seaside and a wide variety of lodging options are available year round. Seaside is more than just a day at the beach!
