Seaside, Oregon recently made the list of “Best Beach Towns to Explore on Foot,” according to Redfin’s Fun & Fabulous section and an article just published in the Huffington Post.

Beach towns making this list are all pedestrian-friendly destinations that are “walking distance to the beach and have plenty of activities to enjoy in town,” according to Aleisha Jacobson, the article’s writer. They used a walk-scoring system to rate the beach towns that reflects “walkability in the center of town, where you can find great restaurants, live music and plenty of things to do once the sun goes down.”

Seaside scored an 86 on the Walk Score rating system. Check out the article here to see what other walkable beach towns made the list.
