Of course you've already read this in the newsletter but still I thought I'd post it here... :-)


Summer Flying

I've noticed a marked drop in fly-in visitors at Seaside airport lately -- is it the economy? I suppose so. But I also wonder whether people realize that Seaside airport has several nearby choices for that $100 hamburger, chowder, or fish-n-chips.

Just down the road (about a 200 yard walk south on the highway) is Creekside Restaurant, with family style dining on the river. The menu includes broasted chicken, hamburgers, pizza, soups, sandwiches, seafood and more.

And 1/2 mile north of the airport, at the intersection of Highway 101 and Pacific Way is the Gearhart Junction Cafe', a 50s style diner with burgers, shakes, etc. (see "New $100 Hamburger Destination at the Coast" in the August 2009 issue.)

Downtown Gearhart is only a 1 mile walk from the airport, and there's a grocery store, ice cream fountain, bakery, and a nice intimate Cafe' called the Pacific Way. From the airport, go north on the highway to Pacific Way then west to the 4-way stop "downtown". Or you can follow the more peaceful neighborhood route on the map at the airport kiosk.

Cabs are cheap to downtown Seaside so that's always an option, and some restaurants and hotels will provide airport pickup. Or catch the bus -- there's a schedule on the Kiosk at the airport. If one of the airport bums is about (yes there are a few of us) we might loan you a car, so don't be afraid to ask!
