Love Exploring Logo By Ella Buchan of Love Exploring | Slide 2 of 31: Oregon’s coastline has long been a joyous “secret” for those who have discovered its rugged charms, and the surf town of Seaside is the gateway to exploring it. It’s the perfect blend of pure fun and natural beauty. Its long, broad promenade dotted with benches and overlooked by hotels, seafood restaurants and stalls selling ice cream. Hiking trails wind through Ecola State Park, where bluffs overlook honey-hued beaches, while gray whales can often be spotted passing by during their migration between December and January and then March to June.
