5 Fun Activities in Seaside

Seaside was developed in 1981 and sits on 80 acres of beachfront property. This peaceful town allows you to go back to the early 80s when the pace of life was just a little slower. The white picket fences, cobblestone streets, cottages, beach homes, beachy store fronts and pocket-parks come together to make your stay feel like a home away from home. Imagine visiting the towns you have always wanted to live in from shows like Gilmore Girls and then put it on the Gulf of Mexico! Blissful living is always at your fingertips here in Seaside.

To help you make a decision on which beach to choose this year, here's a list of 5 of our favorite activities and places to visit in Seaside.
