Family fun, recreation and an expansive 1.5-mile Promenade have crafted Seaside into Oregon’s first seashore resort, dating back to the mid 1800′s. Just 90 minutes from Portland, Seaside beckons with historical references – marking the final destination of Lewis and Clark’s journey west – and world-class events. History is also on the side of the Seaside Aquarium, which has entertained visitors for more than 75 years.
The beach? Wide and open, the Seaside sand is home to the world’s largest beach volleyball tournament every August with more than 1,000 teams playing on over 100 courts. Nestled adjacent to the beach, the “Prom” makes an ideal spot to storm watch, take a stroll or simply soak in a sunset against iconic Tillamook Head.
A walkable and bustling Broadway offers a plethora of unique shopping opportunities and culinary delights satisfying even the most discriminating of tastes.
Seaside, it’s more than just a day at the beach!

Tillamook Rock Lighthouse
West of Tillamook Head, this lighthouse was constructed on top of a rock 1.2 miles seaward off Tillamook Head in 1881. The construction of this particular lighthouse was thought to be incredibly risky, but its five workers beat the odds. Because this lighthouse was built on a rock, it is not accessible to the public. However, visitors can easily see it and a beautiful view of the surrounding ocean from Ecola State Park and Seaside. This lighthouse stands 133 feet above sea level with 62-foot-high tower on basalt rock islet. Exposure to storm waves led to the nickname "Terrible Tilly." It was replaced by a whistle buoy in 1957 and is the only privately owned Oregon coast lighthouse on the National Registry of Historic Places; now used as a columbarium, a storage place for ashes of the deceased.
