Brewery

“Fort George is an awesome, iconic brewery here in town. They have an amazing tap list and an outdoor patio space where there are sometimes cool events, live music, and a place to play games and bring your pets. They have a separate building, where the beer is brewed, that also has the Lovell Tap Room. The Lovell has more experimental brews and is a cool hang-out and then the restaurant is next door. The upstairs has a yummy pizza menu and the downstairs has awesome burgers and other bar food. Fun place to go and they have an amazing view upstairs of the Columbia River! ”

Natural Feature
“This 235' sea stack is a short drive from Seaside. This iconic rock has tide pools at the base of it and sea birds living on it. Take a walk down the beach and check it out. I like to park next to Mo's restaurant where there is a public parking lot and restrooms and walk down to the rock. Some days there are volunteers available with binoculars to help spot birds and to look for sea life at low tide.”
