Honeymooning in Seaside

May 4, 2011 | by Becky Jensen

You’ve walked down the aisle, said your “I dos”, the dancing is done (did you see Dad doing the chicken dance?), the rice or birdseed has been thrown, and now it’s time for you, and your new spouse to head out on your honeymoon. Part of the fun of planning a wedding is also planning the honeymoon (and I’ve been collecting ideas for both)! Many couples dream of the ideal honeymoon location, and on the top of their list should be Seaside! Sand, sea, and surf, along with amazing places to stay, eat, and be merry.

First & foremost you need to find the perfect lodging for your Seaside Honeymoon. Depending on your taste, you can find accommodations ranging from campsites to luxurious hotel rooms.  Check out our lodging system to help you find the right accommodations for your getaway.

There are several hotels that offer honeymoon/romantic packages. Inn of the Four Winds, Inn at the Shore, and Best Western Ocean View Resort are just a few that offer champagne, roses, and details perfect for newlyweds (Jacuzzi tub for two anyone?).

If you enjoy the outdoors, camping might be for you and you can pull up an RV (or tent) at the Circle Creek RV Park. They offer fire rings, a small store, and other amenities.

Once you’ve picked your lodging you’ve really done all the hard work in planning, because Seaside offers many diverse and wonderful dining options to choose while you’re on your honeymoon. From a cozy table for two by the fireplace at the Oceanfront Restaurant to grabbing fries to share at Sam’s Seaside Café, your choices will be as boundless as your love.

Seaside also offers many activities to enjoy while you’re there. Helicopter rides for two, a round of mini-golf, or catching the latest movie at Seaside Cinemas are just a few of the many options. You can grab a blanket and some firewood and head to the beach to enjoy the sunset, s’mores, and a few smooches with your sweetie. Of course just walking hand and hand along the ocean shores is always a nice way to spend your honeymoon too. If you are interested in a recreation honeymoon (maybe some biking or kayaking), check out the Play section of our website and its bevy of suggestions.

That’s the beauty of honeymooning in Seaside! There are so many options for you to design the perfect honeymoon for you and your new spouse. What a perfect way to start your married life together- with warm memories of your time together in Seaside.

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.
