Seaside, Oregon: Coastal Beauty Surrounding Historic Village
Located along the Oregon’s Pacific coast about 1.5 hours northwest of Portland, Seaside has transformed into a popular resort town and a nice vacation spot for couples looking for a romantic getaway. About three blocks from the hotel, a bronze Lewis and Clark statue faces the Pacific Ocean at the historic Seaside Turnaround—the spot where the explorers are thought to have ended their epic westward trek. A 1.5-mile oceanfront promenade (called “the Prom” by the locals) stretches along the beach, featuring shops and restaurants near grass-covered dunes.
Along the promenade lies the Seaside Aquarium, which has been in continuous operation for 75 years. Among its residents are crowd-pleasing, gregarious seals that will happily ask you to feed them chopped fish. Some of the area’s best views are a few miles south of town at the rainforest-covered Tillamook Head, a promontory point that towers over the craggy coastline, beckoning hikers to reach its summit.
