The uncrowded area is within walking distance of shops, cafes, restaurants, and other attractions nearby! When you’re looking for things to do in Seaside Oregon, a trip to Seaside Beach is a must!  

Haystack Rock

Take a day trip to Haystack Rock while staying at in Gearhart Oregon to do some tide pooling or spend the afternoon capturing mesmerizing photographs to bring back home to show your loved ones.
