Deadline Has Passed for Seaside Treasure Quest IV (2014)
TqivcollageFor the past four years, we've tested your sleuthing skills and your creativity and you have risen to the challenge. The arrival of our latest Seaside Visitor Guide 2014 marked the official start of the Seaside Treasure Quest IV. Our Treasure Quest clues helped visitors navigate Seaside from unique perspectives. Questers shared with us how much fun they had discovering parts of Seaside they might not have found otherwise. In 2013, our Treasure Quest III received the highest number of creative entries ever, and boy did we enjoy going through all of them! This year, we've got even more great prizes. Three winners will receive a 2-night stay in Seaside plus a collection of other great prizes. And, of course we are bringing back our favorite category: most creative entry. Our creative entries have come in all shapes, sizes and colors. We've received photo collages, creatively drawn maps, albums with photo captions, and slide show presentations. The 2013 winning entry was a video about a magical quest through Seaside where the Questers were shrunken and turned into clay figures. Their only way back to normal was to solve the Treasure Quest clues. (Here's a blog post with links to 2013 winners.) While you certainly don't need to be a filmmaker in order to win, creativity is king here! Make us laugh, make us cry, make us applaud and gasp out loud!  (just keep it safe and legal, please!)  We look forward to looking over all the entries from you! We will announce winners by November 14, 2014. Will it be you?

FalsunsetFall on Oregon's North Coast

The weather can be beautiful and dramatic during the fall season. Days can be cool and clear, shrouded in fog or gray and stormy. A blustery fall day makes for outstanding kite flying. A clear crisp day is perfect for a long walk on the beach or a hike through the forest or golf. Surfing and river kayaking are also popular fall activities. Fall bird migrations make this another busy season for bird watchers. Beginning as early as August, you might encounter large flocks of shorebirds migrating to the south. In September, SOLVE hosts the Fall Beach and Riverside Cleanup and downtown Seaside turns into a car show at the annual Seaside Wheels and Waves gathering of hot rods and custom cars. In November, Seaside's downtown district presents the popular Fall Wine Walk event. Explore a fall getaway in Seaside by checking out our 30 Things to Do page, flip through the Virtual Visitor Guide, or simply get motivated for a trip to the Oregon Coast by viewing some videos of our beautiful coastal town.

Seasideordonfrank0004More than Just a Day at the Beach
Seaside has been the Northwest’s most popular ocean resort for over a century and is located just 90 minutes from Portland, on the beautiful Oregon coast. It is a destination paradise for a wide variety of reasons: its spectacular ocean views, miles of public beach, unique natural setting, mild ocean climate, outdoor activities, year-round events, excellent shopping, and unforgettable dining.

Visitors delight in dozens of unique boutiques, specialty shops, art galleries and antique stores. Our 1.5-mile long ocean front Promenade is perfect for strollers, joggers and bike riders. The “Prom” also gives access to those with mobility issues, getting them closer to the beach. The wide and sandy beach is available for all kinds of activities, from low rider beach bikes, beach volleyball, wave watching, to sand castle building, kite flying or a hot dog roast. Those young at heart will enjoy such amusements as the carousel, arcades, miniature golf, bumper cars and boats, tilt-a-whirl, paddle boats and canoes.

Seaside has a plethora of culinary delights, satisfying even the most discriminating taste buds. We offer family fare, fine dining, ethnic cuisine, spirits, wine and brews, snacks and sweet treats. Local seafood and Pacific Northwest fare abound. Many of our lodging properties offer daily and weekly rates ranging from traditional hotels and motels, Bed and Breakfasts, Inns, timeshares, condos, vacation rentals, camp grounds and RV Resorts. Seaside is more than just a day at the beach!
