Visit Seaside, OR

“There is something charming in little seaside towns when it is not high tourist season. Love this little sleepy, more relaxed and laid back vibe, a chance to browse through small shops and cafes without crowds, have a little talk with owners.” Precious times indeed. 💕

Seaside, Oregon, is known for its downtown murals and active arts scene.
As one of the best known beach destinations in the Pacific Northwest, Seaside has a reputation for stunning sunsets, inviting sand, and proximity to incredible hiking trails that wander along both the sandy shores and rugged bluffs. In addition to its scenic beauty, though, Seaside is also full of rich history and embraces artists from all walks of life. From art walks to museums to festivals, this Oregon Coast gem has an ocean’s worth of art and culture to explore during your next visit.
Visiting Seaside when there is not an Art Walk? Don’t fret. Seaside’s art community is well represented all year long. Must-stop art galleries include the Oregon Gallery, the SunRose Gallery, the Fairweather House and Gallery, and the numerous murals spread all throughout town. The Seaside murals are an attraction in themselves and capture the spirit and culture of this idyllic coastal town. Colorful, iconic, and full of the coastal spirit you’d expect to see, the murals, which are perfect for selfies in the salty air, adorn buildings all around town.
