For me a trip to Cannon Beach is not complete with out a trip into Seaside. Mainly because Seaside has all these cute little touristy shops. I love strolling in and out of each store. Hoping to score some new treasure to add to my collection. Usually I walk way with no treasure except for the memories of walking around.
The Seaside Carousal Mall is always a fun stop. I love watching the carousal go round and round. Off to one side is a place where you can stamp coastal images into pennies. Such a silly little thing that brings me joy.
While there don’t miss the hat shop. So many different ones to try on. This last time I was there my favorite was the fish hat! Sadly I have not one photo of that but the memories will last a life time.
A cant miss is a walk down the promenade, over the bridge past the shops you will find a sweet little roundabout with a view of the ocean. As you stroll you can smell the sea breeze. It has such a calming affect on me. To feel the wind tugging at your hair as you take in the view is peaceful.
After a morning of window shopping and walking, nothing is better than stopping in at the Seaside Brewing Company. I love chowing down on their Jalapeno Burger. Since I avoid gluten, I have it with out the bun and oh yum. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. You should tell them I sent you. It wont help you at all though since they don’t know who I am 😉
I have been going through all my photos in an attempt to share just how lovely seaside is, only to find I am very lacking in the photo department here. So I hope that today you just enjoy these words!
Tell me some of your favorite spots in Seaside! If you have not been there where do you like to do some good touristy window shopping?
