It is a destination paradise for a wide variety of reasons: its spectacular ocean views, miles of public beach, unique natural setting, mild ocean climate, outdoor activities, year-round events, excellent shopping, and unforgettable dining. Visitors delight in dozens of unique boutiques, specialty shops, art galleries and antique stores.

The average temperature in August at Seaside is between 53°F and 68°F, and the average ocean temperature is 58°F. We suggest you bring warm jackets although it is summer.
