Seaside has been a popular destination since the 1800’s for a variety of reasons. Today, it’s miles of sandy beach, famous “turnaround,” and three-mile long oceanfront Promenade, plus family-fun attractions offer an abundance of year-round activities. Visit the Seaside Aquarium to feed the seals, or touch sea creatures at the Discovery Center. Downtown offers shopping with a variety of apparel, jewelry, arts, collectibles, home decor, specialty gifts, and souvenirs. Be sure to stop by the Carousel Mall featuring unique shops surrounding a full-size fully operational classic old-fashioned carousel. The carousel horses are replicas of vintage horses from the early 1900’s. Seaside also boasts the Fun Center Arcade, miniature golf, bumper cars, and Tilt-a-Whirl. From historical sites to beachcombing, from souvenir shopping to surrey bicycle rentals, Seaside offers great opportunities for those “remember when…” memories — or even rainy days!
