Vacation Rentals in Seaside162 Rentals
Seaside is the Northern Oregon Coast's most popular and family-centric destination, with its bustling beach side tourist district offering plenty of entertainment and activities for visitors of all ages. Only an hour and a half from Portland, the resort town has been an oceanfront getaway for "city folk" since the mid-1800s. With an ample selection of pizza parlors, seafood shacks, antique shops, and souvenir stands, a Seaside, Oregon vacation rental is an ideal destination for those who want to enjoy the beauty of the Oregon Coast without giving up easy access to plenty of dining, shopping, and entertainment options. The beach itself is wide and sandy, with amenities such as public bathrooms and the 1.5-mile paved Promenade providing an easy stroll along the shore. The young and young at heart frolic in the surf, build sand castles, fly kites, or rent bicycles for a beachfront ride. During the warmer months, nearly every weekend brings an event or festival town. The entertainment district near the Prom (as locals call it) is full of rainy-day activities, ranging from arcade games and carnival rides to the Seaside Aquarium. For those who like to cook, Bell Buoy of Seaside offers local seafood such as clams, oysters, and Dungeness crabs, ready to take home to your beach house's kitchen. More adventuresome chefs can dig in the sand for razor clams or toss a crab trap over the 12th Avenue Bridge (just make sure to get the proper licenses at a fishing or sporting goods store first!). Dining out, of course, brings a multitude of options. A few classic Seaside dining experiences include carne asada tacos at Casa del Sol, hazelnut-crusted halibut at Maggie's on the Prom, and a giant pepperoni pie from Fultano's Pizza. We also suggest stopping by Yummy Wine Bar & Bistro for a glass of Willamette Valley's finest paired with exceptional cuisine and McKeown's Restaurant & Bar for its friendly atmosphere and fresh Northwest seafood. A Seaside vacation rental offers convenient access to all the highlights of the region. Cannon Beach's upscale shopping and dining options are only fifteen minutes south, with the beautiful hiking trails of Ecola State Park in between. Heading north, charming Gearhart offers a slower pace just five minutes away, or travel twenty minutes to historic Astoria with its bigger-city amenities. Sitting only ninety minutes to Portland and three and a half hours to Seattle, a cozy beach house in Seaside makes for a uniquely fun-filled home base to explore all the Northern Oregon Coast has to offer.
