Seaside, Oregon, is touted as the official ending destination of Lewis and Clark’s trail, and the area became a national monument. The city has come to be known as the “beach playground” of the northwestern United States because of its miles of beach, and the mile-and-a-half long promenade, known as the Prom, dates to the 1920s. Seaside offers motels and other lodgings for guests traveling with pets.
