Getting Around Seaside

    Seaside has been a tourist destination since the early 1900's. The main strip was built to accommodate restaurants, boutiques, galleries and campy amusements like ski ball, bumper cars and go karts. The Necanicum river runs alongside the ocean and is perfect for kayaking or paddle boating. One of the best things that we loved right away about this property is that everything is so close by. When you are in Seaside you don't really need to drive. You can park and walk almost everywhere. This post is designed to guide you on the many things you can enjoy while visiting the Starry Night.

The Starry Night is tucked away in the heart of Seaside. Broadway Street is the main drag just three blocks from the Inn. Everything you may need can be found en route to or on Broadway street. We have put a list of places that we have found to be awesome. We have not been able to check out all the restaurants yet, but these are our top picks so far.
