Seaside - Gearhart

Seaside OregonSeaside has been the Oregon Coast's most popular ocean resort since the mid 1800s and is only 90 minutes from Portland, Oregon. The name "Seaside" came from a summer resort built by the railroad magnate Ben Holladay in the 1870s, Seaside House, located a mile south of the business center.

There is an annual volleyball tournament held every August that draws thousands of competitors and participants. Seaside is the destination for the Hood to Coast relay race and Portland-to-Coast relay walk, which also take place in August. The Seaside Three-Course Challenge, a cross country race, is also held at Fort Rilea, near Seaside, every fall, and is hosted by Seaside High School.

Every spring, Seaside hosts the Dorchester Conference, a convention of the Oregon Republican Party. This convention was founded in 1964, by then-state representative Bob Packwood as a forum for liberal Republicans, but within the next few years it attracted interest from other Republicans, and in the 1990s was dominated by members of the conservative branch of the party. Over the years the conference has attracted visits from presidential candidates, debates between Republican primary candidates, and discussions of wider political and social issues.

Seaside is home to the Seaside Aquarium a short walk from the Lewis & Clark monument.

The Miss Oregon Pageant, the official state finals to Miss America takes place annually at the Seaside Civic Center.

At the end of Broadway, Seaside's main street, lies "The Turnaround". It is a roundabout designed to turn traffic around when the street dead ends at the Pacific Ocean. In the middle of "The Turnaround" stands a statue of Lewis and Clark. The statue signifies that not only tourists "turn around" in Seaside, but that Lewis and Clark turned again for home, and their report to fellow Albemarle, Virginia resident Thomas Jefferson, when they reached the Pacific Ocean. "The Turnaround" is also one end of Seaside's 1.5-mile long ocean front Promenade is perfect for strollers, joggers and bike riders.

Raptors of the North Oregon Coast
Seaside - Gearhart

By Don Anderson for the Seaside Signal

Seaside Signal imageMany birders might associate raptor sightings with the warmer and drier conditions of eastern Oregon. But the meadows, waterways and marshes of the North Coast attract several of these magnificent birds, which are easy to see because of their size. Raptors are any bird of prey, like a hawk, eagle, falcon or osprey. In fact, the Seaside area has all four types of birds.

Dozens of huge squid freeze on Oregon beaches
Seaside - Gearhart
Giant Humbolt SquidDozens of large Humboldt squid were washing up this week on the northern Oregon beaches - and almost immediately freezing as they hit the frigid air.

Staffers from the Seaside Aquarium noted that it was like the inundation of Humboldt squid last year, except that incident spread all the way to the Puget Sound. This time, reports of squid stretch from Warrenton to Pacific City. The employees found 16 of the enormous squid Wednesday, but have gotten reports of another two dozen between Seaside and Gearhart.

The squid were 4 to 5 feet long and weighed just more than 25 pounds. One was as tall as aquarium employee Tiffany Boothe...
