Seaside’s Hospitality Industry News: A New Resource for Seaside Tourism

March 31, 2014 | by Jon Rahl

The mission of the City of Seaside Visitors Bureau has long been to attract, inform and help assist visitors spending time along Oregon’s North Coast. However, with that role comes additional work with hospitality employees and ambassadors throughout the city and Clatsop County. Folks like you that we like to refer to as our stakeholders and ambassadors.

We constantly ask ourselves how we can improve relationships with our stakeholders (anyone working in leisure and hospitality) and how we might be able to better inform our front line staff that help welcome the hundreds of thousands of visitors that come to Seaside each year. With that thought, it’s with pleasure that we unveil the first issue of our quarterly industry newsletter, a vehicle meant to inform and give helpful tips for tourism professionals.

If you’ve read this far, and like the idea, please make sure your email is on our official list. Simply follow this link, enter your email and confirm you’d like to receive the news. You can unsubscribe at any time, but we hope this will be a valuable piece of information for you and your staff. Have a comment, or a feature you’d like to see in a future issue? Send me an email: jrahl@cityofseaside.us! Until then, have a great spring and summer season in Seaside!

and so much more!

Camping in Seaside

Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner. One of my very favorite things to do during Memorial Day weekend is to go camping. I love setting up the tents, snuggling in a warm sleeping bag, sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows for s’mores, and smelling like a campfire all weekend. I love every bit of it! If you’ve never camped by the Pacific Ocean then you are missing out! You get to add the salty air, sandy beach, and all the benefits of being near Seaside to add to your camping experience.

Let’s Fly a Kite

On the beach at Seaside is perfect for this. There are no overhead wires and the beach has few up or down wind drafts from the winds which move across the ocean. This makes kite flying easier and explains why kites are a common part of the Seaside landscape. Kite flying is for dry days as wet kite lines can act as a conductor for static electricity and lightning in a storm.
