MotorTrend Magazine – Epic Drives: Classic Cobra Visits Seaside

August 18, 2014 | by Jon Rahl

In June, MOTOR TREND Magazine visited Seaside on one of its stops during an Epic Drives episode tour from Tacoma, Washington to Pebble Beach, California. Host Arthur St. Antoine arrived in a classic replica of the 1960s 427 Cobra recreated by Factory Five Racing.

St. Antoine met Seaside Visitors Bureau staffer Jon Rahl for a tour of Seaside that included a cruise of Broadway, a stop at the Lewis & Clark Salt Cairns and dinner at U Street Pub & Eatery.

With excellent photography captured during a crisp but sunny and white-cloud filled evening, Seaside shines brightly during its two and half minute segment. While the entire episode is worth watching, the Seaside segment begins at the 6:35 mark in the 22-minute show. Watch the entire episode.

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.
