Seaside exceeded my expectations. Even though it is a touristy town we had a great time playing on the beach and walking the town. My kids played at the arcades and rode the bumper cars and carousel. We all had fun just shopping around. There’s a great seashell shop in the Carousel Mall. Eat at Norma’s and Pig-N-Pancake. You’ll find many other great places for lunch or a snack – there’s a nice bakery under the Trendwest Resort. You’ll find free public parking at the Trendwest Resort (at the end of the Lewis & Clark Trail in the center of town on the beachfront) so if you are camping or staying outside town, it’s easy to park and walk the town. Be sure to check tide tables before you go and try to get shells and sand dollars at low tide. This eTrail has some helpful info on where to stay, camp, eat, and shop while you are in Seaside.
