The city of Seaside on Oregon's northern coast is a delightful place to come with your pup. With a pawtastic coastal trail, nearby state parks, and several dog-friendly restaurants, you'll have a variety of ways to spend time with your special pal.
Take Fido about eight miles south of Seaside to Haystack Hill State Park in Cannon Beach. Walk through the trails in the wooded areas or head down to the water. Here, you can get spectacular views of Haystack Rock. Dogs are allowed on the beach provided they're on a leash or immediately responsive to your voice commands.
You can also drive north with your pup to the Del Rey Beach State Recreation Site. This long strip of sand and fields is a short five-mile drive from downtown Seaside. Walk along the coast with your canine companion, or bring along a picnic and watch the sun set over the water.
After a day on the beach, head to N Marion Avenue and grab a bite to eat with your pup at McMenamins Sand Trap Pub in the Gearhart Hotel. You can select from salads, sandwiches, burgers, and more. Dogs are welcome to lounge at your feet at outdoor tables on the patio.
