Seaside Treasure Quest Celebrates Five Years
with Bigger
than Ever Prize Packages!
Tqv CollageWe've tested your sleuthing skills and your creativity and you have risen to the challenge for the past four years. The arrival of our Seaside Visitor Guide each year marks the official start of the Seaside Treasure Quest. Our Treasure Quest clues help visitors navigate Seaside from some unique perspectives. Questers share 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 our new Treasure Quest V, we have 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 king here! Make us laugh, make us cry, make us applaud and gasp out loud!  (Just keep it safe and legal, please!)  We look forward to seeing all the entries for Treasure Quest V in 2015.

Winter on Oregon's North Coast

Winter in Seaside by Don Frank

Seaside and Oregon's North Coast offer unique experiences any time of year. Winter draws storm watchers who come to experience one of the wettest and windiest places in the country, the perfect setting to cozy up by the fire or savor a warm bowl of chowder. It's the quietest time of year at the Coast, and winter visitors love it that way. Mild temperatures make Seaside one of the easiest travel destinations to reach during the winter, but storm watchers are also drawn to the sometimes-wild weather. Storm-tossed seas can be an awesome sight and winter tides often bring the best beach combing finds of the year. In one of nature’s most remarkable migrations, over 20,000 Gray whales are observed from coastal viewpoints. Herds of Roosevelt elk are seen roaming and grazing in coastal meadows. Bald eagles soar overhead, Peregrine falcons hunt along waterways and many other varieties of birds make this a prime season for bird watching. Several area holiday events make winter a festive time of year. Explore your winter getaway in Seaside by checking out our 30 Things to Do page, flip through the Virtual Visitor Guide, or simply get motivated for a trip to the Oregon Coast by viewing some videos of our beautiful coastal town.

Seasideordonfrank0004More than Just a Day 
at the Beach
Seaside has been the Northwest’s most popular ocean resort for over a century and is located just 90 minutes from Portland, on the beautiful Oregon coast. It is a destination paradise for a wide variety of reasons: its spectacular ocean views, miles of public beach, unique natural setting, mild ocean climate, outdoor activities, year-round events, excellent shopping, and unforgettable dining.

Visitors delight in dozens of unique boutiques, specialty shops, art galleries and antique stores. Our 1.5-mile long ocean front Promenade is perfect for strollers, joggers and bike riders. The “Prom” also gives access to those with mobility issues, getting them closer to the beach. The wide and sandy beach is available for all kinds of activities, from low rider beach bikes, beach volleyball, wave watching, to sand castle building, kite flying or a hot dog roast. Those young at heart will enjoy such amusements as the carousel, arcades, miniature golf, bumper cars and boats, tilt-a-whirl, paddle boats and canoes.

Seaside has a plethora of culinary delights, satisfying even the most discriminating taste buds. We offer family fare, fine dining, ethnic cuisine, spirits, wine and brews, snacks and sweet treats. Local seafood and Pacific Northwest fare abound. Many of our lodging properties offer daily and weekly rates ranging from traditional hotels and motels, Bed and Breakfasts, Inns, timeshares, condos, vacation rentals, camp grounds and RV Resorts. Seaside is more than just a day at the beach!
