Spring along the Oregon Coast
Seaside's pocket gardens burst with color and there is an increase of family activities when spring arrives at the beach. This is a favorite season for surfers and river kayakers. May brings the first of the semi-annual wine walk events. A wide variety of wildflowers bloom in spring, providing a colorful palette in the coastal meadows, forests, bluffs and beaches. April and May are busy seasons for birds and birdwatchers. Large numbers of shorebirds migrate north along the coast. Spring also brings the first of the daytime minus tides, making this an exceptional time for clamming and beach combing. One day each spring, thousands of volunteers scour the coast during the SOLVE
Spring Oregon Beach Cleanup. Consider a winter getaway by checking out our "30 Things to Do

of what happens in our beautiful coastal town.
|More 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!
