“End of the Lewis & Clark trail.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

You can't come to Seaside without taking your photo at the turnaround in front of the Lewis & Clark Statue. This is the end of their journey to discover the West. Included in the statue is their Newfoundlander dog, who's name is Seaman. Read the book "undaunted courage" by Stephen Ambrose for the complete story of their journey.

“Great place to watch the beach activities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

It is hard to visit Seaside and not walk to the Turnaround. I love to sit and people watch or take in the sunset from this spot

“Historic point”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

It's pretty amazing to stand where history took place. Only issue is that you have to be quick to take pictures, as the many others want to snap photos and cars are moving around the circle, which makes for quite a bit of congestion.

“Photo op”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

This is a good place to get a quick photo, you can also walk out on the beach from here. A bit to cold for me.
