The former site of Fort Ord, Seaside, California is now an up and coming destination complete with two previously "off-limits" golf courses, an easy entrance to the Fort Ord National Monument, and some of the best beach access found anywhere on the Central California coast.
Things to Do in Seaside
Seaside's easy ocean access makes it a favorite haven for people fond of outdoor pursuits, including kayaking, scuba diving and even hang gliding.

Surfers, rock climbers, beachcombers and students from CSUMB (California State University at Monterey Bay) easily coexist on pristine stretches of coastal bliss in Seaside, and so will you. You're invited to take a closer look and "Discover the Spirit of Seaside!"
