Broadway St. runs down the middle of Seaside coming to an end at the famous Seaside Turnaround where, just down a few steps, the beach and Pacific Ocean lie. Walk up the street and you’ll come across most of what makes Seaside one of the most popular vacation destinations in the state of Oregon. Downtown Seaside is home to some classic beach town treats like salt-water taffy, T-shirt shops, and fun for everyone in the family. Eat some of the Pacific Oceans famous bounty, stop by one of the fun theme shops, or take a spin on the Tilt-a-Whirl.
For as small of a town that Seaside is, the town is only 4.14 sq miles in size, it has three distinct shopping districts to choose from. Downtown Seaside offers up boutique shops, themed stores, and T-Shirt/Seaside Apparel Shops. Stop by the Seaside Carousel Mall and check out one of their 20 shops inside or take a spin on their famous carousel. Side note, the carousel has a variety of 17 animals, and a few double chairs, to choose from. If you’re looking for more nationally known brands, head north to the Seaside Outlet Mall. There you’ll find brands like Nike, Zumiez, Eddie Bauer and more. Driving a Tesla? They have a conveniently located charging station in their parking lot. South of downtown, while the shops are fewer and farther between, offers up some of the freshest Seafood in town as well as some small mom and pop style stores and shops. If you’re traveling to us on Highway 26 North keep an eye out or you’ll miss them! There’s even talks a zipline obstacle course coming soon – how fun!
If you’re looking for some classic beach town fun we highly recommend checking out the Seaside Tilt-a-Whirl. If spinning around in circles isn’t your idea of fun, mini-golf and bumper cars are housed in the same shop. While you’re there grab a pronto-pup – a hand dipped corn dog that is a Seaside staple. Across the street you’ll find the fun photo-op stop Seaside Inverted Experience. Here, they have inverted props that you can snap photos of on your phone/camera that make it look like you and your family/friends are in a multitude of crazy positions. Our favorite of their 8 available themes makes it look like you are being blown sideways down the Seaside Prom. Just down the street from that is one of our favorite spots – The Seaside Funland Arcade. This huge arcade is home to hundreds of new, and classic, games for you to choose from. The in-house pizza restaurant, Fultanos Pizza, is a locally famous chain. Grab a full pie, pizza by the slice, or one of their many beers on tap – you wont be dissapointed.
There are dozens of sweet shops and restaurants the line Broadway alone. There is enough variety to satisfy your entire group so that you may never have to step foot in a car, or leave downtown while you’re here. One of our new favorite spots is the newly restored Times Theatre and Public House. Recently opened in 2018 this cool spot is a Pub, Brewery, and movie theater! When they’re not playing classic, or new, movies you can catch a game or live entertainment. We recommend checking out their website to see what’s showing during your stay.
