A magical place where the ocean, rivers, and mountains converge, Seaside, on the state’s northern coast, is a stunningly scenic beach community where sunset beach strolls, river paddleboat rides, and biking excursions are favorite pastimes. With its spectacular ocean views and its miles of public beach, arcades, and specialty shops, Seaside has been a popular beach vacation area for over a century.
Consider staying in a vacation rental in Seaside rather than a small, staid hotel room. Vacation rentals are a cost effective, value-oriented alternative to pricey hotels. Choices run the gamut from expansive, luxury beach homes with hardwood floors, high ceilings, hot tubs and Jacuzzis to cozy cottages surrounded by flowerbeds and ultra-modern condos oozing with amenities like swimming pools, fitness centers, and tennis courts.
One of the town’s biggest lures is the Seaside Aquarium, the oldest aquarium on the West Coast, where you can see seals perform tricks for food and get up close and personal with sea stars, sea urchins, crabs, and other marine life at unique touch tanks for kids. Seaside Aquarium is small and intimate with a much different ambiance than your mega aquariums in other destinations.
Seaside has three miles of beaches and the two-mile long Promenade, known locally as “The Prom”, an 8,000-foot long concrete boardwalk.
Once the beach towels have been put away for the day, it’s time to shop, right? The Seaside Factory Outlet Center has over 100,000 square feet of shops and restaurants including Eddie Bauer, Nike, Jones New York, and Bass stores. A fun shopping experience for kids is the Seaside Carousel Mall, which has 20 shops, an ice cream parlor, and a full size-working carousel.
Affording a level of comfort and spaciousness you can’t get in a small hotel room, vacation rentals are perfect for families who need space and relish amenities like large screen televisions, high-speed Internet, and roomy living areas. An appealing money-saving aspect of a vacation rental is the fully equipped kitchen, which allows you to forego expensive restaurants and prepare your own sumptuous snacks and meals. You can easily fix something as simple as a sub sandwich or a fabulous feast of grilled salmon and rice pilaf at a fraction you’d pay dining out.
