Seaside is a city on the Northern Oregon Coast.

Understand

Go to New York, take the Coney Island amusement park (minus the amusement park rides and midway), lift it up, and drop on the Oregon Coast. If you can imagine this, you've got a good idea of the look and feel of Seaside. Seaside is one of the most popular beach resorts on the Oregon Coast, helped largely by easy access from Portland. It has all the trappings of a beach town...cotton candy, salt water taffy, and souvenir shops galore. This is a great place for kids and kids-at-heart.

Get in

Seaside is on U.S. Highway 101, which runs along the Pacific Coast from Los Angeles to Olympia, Washington. The best way to get to Seaside from Portland is to take U.S. Highway 26 from downtown Portland and follow it approximately 80 miles to its intersection with U.S. 101 just south of Seaside.

Portland International Airport is the nearest airport to Seaside with scheduled service.
