Things to Do in Seaside

Each year, the Hood to Coast Relay begins at Mt. Hood and covers almost 200 miles before concluding right here in Seaside. Over 1,000 teams of 12 runners apiece, 3600 volunteers, and every team’s supporters descend upon Seaside to celebrate the race’s conclusion with food, adult beverages, music, awards, and more!

Aside from the obvious to-go of “the beach,” one of the best ways to enjoy the Seaside outdoors is to hike the Tillamook Head Traverse. This moderately difficult 6.3-mile hike begins at the southern end of Seaside and takes you along the cliff-faced coastline, through Hiker’s Camp (and past an old WWII bunker) and all the way to the Indian Beach parking area. Adventurous hikers can continue the hike all the way through Ecola State Park and into Cannon Beach.
