Nostalgia runs deep in this coastal, Pacific Northwest town where the vintage arcades are always hopping.

Since the 1860s, Seaside has been Oregon's favorite getaway for oceanfront fun, thanks to its dramatic surf-soaked beach and nostalgic promenade. This coastal village caters to kids and kids at heart with its saltwater taffy, ice cream shops, amusement park rides, an aquarium and a century-old promenade. But there's serious history, too, as Lewis and Clark once camped here on their extraordinary cross-country journey.
