Not many places can compare to the pure, rustic beauty of the Oregon Coast. Stretching 363 miles north to south, there's plenty of coastline to explore along the Pacific Ocean. My family returned again this year and we stayed in Seaside. During our visit, we witnessed so much natural beauty. From spotting whales, to watching the sun rise and set, to seeing the stars on a dark, clear night, and seeing rainbows from our balcony, it was all good. In fact, it was awesome.
