Vacation Rentals in Seaside Oregon – Destination Spot of the Pacific Northwest


Seaside Oregon is the perfect year round get away in the Pacific Northwest. It is a beautiful full service resort town of approximately 4.5 square miles that is nestled into the shores of the Pacific Ocean near where the Columbia river meets the sea. Only steps away from regional and state and national parks there is an abundance of hiking, walking running and cycling opportunities.

There is abundant sea life and clams and mussels to whet the appetite and satisfy the beach comber heart. Because there are freshwater rivers that feed into the ocean there is an abundance of fresh water sea life like trout and halibut as well as crab and ocean fish.Within less than an hours drive there is abundant river fishing either from the shore or from a small boat.

There are cultural and sporting events to occupy, entertain, engage and relax even the most discerning traveler. The annual Seaside Jazz Festival,which happens every Spring covering numerous venues and lasting throughout a weekend. In addition to the “official” venues all centered around downtown, there are numerous impromptu gatherings and breakout events at smaller clubs around town over the same weekend. There is a monthly art walk in the historic Gilbert District on the first Saturday of each month which features artists, lectures, demonstrations and live music performances. This event has been featured for 10+ years and each year has some return artists but a sprinkling of new talent to keep things fresh. The Hood to Coast and Portland to Coast relay which takes place in late summer is a sport enthusiast’s answer to all that is wonderful. It is a relay that goes from Mount Hood to the shore of the pacific in seaside Oregon and attracts thousands of participants and onlookers to enjoy the sunshine and the commradre. The numerous cycling routes and readily available bicycle rental opportunities give every visitor to see this beautiful town up close and personal for every activity from just getting around town to taking a day out in the forest and doing a bit of trail riding.
If business is on the agenda there are several venues suited to different size groups from small conference meeting rooms to larger ball rooms and conference halls.Transportation is convenient and varied with the area being served by an inner city bus system, a municipal airport which accepts private planes. International flights come into Portland where you can either rent a car and take a drive down the coast or catch the coastal bus.There are two major highways which feed into the city of Seaside. There are daily bus routes that connects the coast from Portland through Seaside. Services like Uber and Lyft have not made it to the fair city of Seaside but there is local inner city busses and taxi service as well as of course rental cars.

The climate is typical Pacific Northwest with rainy mild temperatures winters and mild to cool summers that lend themselves to enjoying the outdoors no matter what the season. The city gets an average of around 100 days of precipitation a year so out of 365 days you have many days of sun and warm weather to enjoy.
