ACTIVITIES: We spent several days in Seaside with the family and grand children in August 2017 and had an absolutely great time. Seaside has many fun family activities including surrey rides from Wheels Fun Rentals, bumper cars, paddle boat rentals and the huge Funland Seaside Arcade. The Aquarium located on the Seaside Promenade is wheelchair accessible and a great place for kids to see and touch animal life. We also took an hour drive south to the Tillamook Cheese Factory Visitor Center. The place was jammed but very disappointing - basically a giant gift store selling cheese and ice cream cones with no tour. There's a heavy gravel parking lot and only 2 handicapped parking spaces which were both taken. They're building a new visitor center but it'll probably just be a bigger gift shop. Not worth the effort. But Seaside and Cannon Beach are magnificent and tons of fun!
