|The essence of Seaside, Oregon...|
kid friendly restaurants!
But if you are a retired person and don't want wigglers next to you, a no minors allowed section greets you and a bartender with serve you a cold beer from a very large selection of beers on tap. It seems almost impossible but this restaurant has figured out how to keep every age group and life style happy.
So Seaside has the total package for children of all ages. I loved shopping at boutiques for clothes. The streets are filled with senior citizens enjoying the Seaside atmosphere. Parents can ride bumper cars with children, play at the arcade, rent wheels for the beach, visit the aquarium or simply sit on the beach and enjoy the wonders of that beautiful Pacific Ocean. Kite flying is possible everyday of the year and kite shops sell every type of kite imaginable. The list goes on and on. There is even a carousel inside a small shopping mall. The souvenir shops do not over shadow all the other business yet they are available for those that want to take home a trinket or two.
