I recently had the opportunity to hang out in Seaside, Oregon. I'd only passed through once before, stopping to shop at the Nike Outlet with my parents years ago, so I didn't know what to expect. Seaside ended up being a pretty neat place, with a nice long stretch of beach with views of the Pacific and a long Promenade to walk down. We took our boys on a walk down the Prom everyday while checking out the ocean and all the waterfront hotels. The Turnaround was pretty cool with a Lewis and Clark statue and views of the sea. There are also tons of shops and restaurants around and even an arcade, an aquarium and a carousel. Seaside had lots to offer and I was impressed. Plus I love the ocean and I could look at it all day.
