Bobbie Hasselbring from MotorHome magazine attended a media Fam (Familiarization) Tour hosted by the City of Seaside Visitors Bureau and the Astoria-Warrenton Chamber of Commerce in March of 2013. As a result, this story about our beautiful North Coast was written.

This Fam Tour took travel writers and travel magazine publishers exploring in the Seaside and Astoria-Warrenton areas.

Read the full story from the May 2014 issue of MotorHome magazine and see the beautiful photos of our area taken by Bobbie on her trip.
