Seaside: In the News

Destinations Magazine: Great Escapes

December 15, 2014 | by Jon Rahl

Vacations are the “great escapes we need,” says Destinations magazine, “to relax, recharge and rejuvenate ourselves.” And for a little inspiration on where you might go on your next “Great Escape,” Destinations hosted a photo contest in December 2014.

First place honors went to Judy Brooks from Athol, Idaho, who submitted a photo from her recent trip to Seaside, Oregon! Judy’s photo, a stunning sunset shot with three youngsters running toward the waves, graced the cover of the magazine.

Look inside to see all the winning photos and Honorable Mentions.
