Seaside Treasure Quest Celebrates Five Years
with Bigger
than Ever Prize Packages!
Tqv CollageWe've tested your sleuthing skills and your creativity and you have risen to the challenge for the past four years. The arrival of our Seaside Visitor Guide each year marks the official start of the Seaside Treasure Quest. Our Treasure Quest clues help visitors navigate Seaside from some unique perspectives. Questers share with us how much fun they have discovering parts of Seaside they might not have found otherwise. Early on, we received so many creative entries we decided to create a new category: "Most Creative Entry." For our new Treasure Quest V, we have a Grand Prize specially designed for all you creative types. Our creative entries have come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and presentations. We've received photo collages, creatively drawn maps, handmade boxes, poetry about Seaside, and funny homemade videos. The 2013 winning entry for Most Creative 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. (Check it out here.) 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 seeing all the entries for Treasure Quest V in 2015.

Spring on Oregon's North Coast

-10-03 08.09.33 Jon.Rahl

Seaside's pocket gardens burst with color and there is an increase of family activities when spring arrives on the beach. This is a favorite season for surfers and river kayakers. May brings the first of the semi-annual wine walk events. A wide variety of wildflowers bloom in spring, providing a colorful palette in the coastal meadows, forests, bluffs and beaches. April and May are busy seasons for birds and birdwatchers. Large numbers of shorebirds migrate north along the coast. Spring also brings the first of the daytime minus tides, making this an exceptional time for clamming and beachcombing.

at the Beach
Seaside has been the Northwest’s most popular ocean resort for over a century. Located just 90 minutes from Portland, Seaside 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 wide range 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!
