Seaside is located two miles south of Gearhart, making it a convenient spot to spend some time while staying at Gearhart by the Sea Resort. Seaside features three miles of beach, and the Promenade with two miles of ocean-front boardwalk. The Promenade is the home of the Seaside Aquarium, founded in 1937. You can feed the seals, observe displays of marine life, and touch sea creatures.
The Turnaround at Broadway in the heart of Seaside is a favorite stop for visitors. Broadway features many shops and activities, including a carousel, miniature golf, bumper cars, and arcades for kids of all ages. The perfect place to spend time when the weather isn’t perfect!
The fall and winter months in Seaside often bring rain. But temperatures are typically mild. If you’re lucky enough to have good weather, or brave enough to get out in the rain, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy nature in and around Seaside. The Oregon Coast Trail on Tillamook Head between Ecola State Park and Seaside provides spectacular views.
