beautiful beach....lots of shops...lots of cheesy restaurants
A pretty heay local surf scene at certain spots, although generally friendly at most places.
In a nutshell
Small town...Big fun
Down MAIN STREET everyone drives to the BEACH TURNABOUT. Mostly it's people just cruisin, check out each other and the pedestrians checking out the cars and vice versa. Almost everyone takes their picture where the street, dead ends at the beach and makes your vehicle pull a 360 turn about. Their are some cocrete statues a city plaque and a concrete fence and some benches where everyone poses for a picture. We decided to pose like Charlie's Angels, how bout you?
For last minute trips call Seaside ZChamber of Commerce. They actually keep track of which hotels have openings and which hotel members have the cheapest rates. We were able to find hotels starting under $50 night by contacting the chamber for their most affordable hotel members phone numbers.

Do not ever stay at the city center motel in Seaside Oregon! To start off we went on a weekend where they were having a roundup event so there was absolutely no where to stay but we managed to get the last room at City Center motel. We paid $103.20 for an upstairs room of what looked like an old house,our door was a bedroom door with a lock that just as well not be on it at all, it smelled like a cat litter pan (dirty one) there were only 2 rooms up there and our neighbors had a dog that barked for hours while the owners were not there even though the hotel policy is to not leave ur pets alone in the room. The neighbors were up until 1:30am so loud it sounded like they were in our room. They were smoking pot.....you could smell it in our room you could here them talk about the weed and how they bought it from the Guy down stairs, every other word was "***" then their company finally left but not to worry they were back up at 8:00am and it sounded like the Guy was coughing up a lung then we listened to them argue about the dog pooping on the floor. I had asked to be moved from our so called room but she assured me they had nothing else available. Errrrrr I just wanted to take my 2 sons and my 76 year old mom for a nice get away at the beach. I stopped by the office to tell her what happen in hopes of getting some of my money back but was told no and was given a coupon for 10% off the next time I come........like that will ever happen again! NO WAY! again the name of the place is City Center Motel in Seaside Oregon! DO NOT EVER STAY THERE! My 8 year old son is still asking me what weed is and why do people do that...........

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Make sure to bring shoes for the sand and shoes for walking. Be sure to bring warm clothes for the fall, winter, and spring and even the summer! In Oregon, on the beach, it can be cold all year round, especially in the evenings.
Photo Equipment: Lots of photo opportunites along the coast.
Miscellaneous: A light jacket in the summer and heavy warm jacket for winter. I would also suggest being prepared for rain all year long.

Take a drive along the coast and visit Tillamook. There is a great cheese factory where you can watch them actually prepare and package many types of cheese. But the cheese factory is more than cheese....it's ice cream too. And their ice cream is the best!!!
