Seaside: In the News

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.
