It’s no secret that I tend to get extremely just a little antsy at work without a proper vacation…which usually means visiting the happiest place on earth 70% of the time. Since we’ve been saving up, vacations are a little out of reach right now, but I had to get away for the weekend. With a full tank of gas and the cheapest hotel booked, Griffin and I headed to Seaside, Oregon for a quick weekend trip!

It’s a little over 3 hours from Seattle to Seaside, so it’s not bad at all and once you hit Astoria it’s only a short drive. The Oregon coast is littered with small towns the length of a few blocks so stopping is a must, even if it’s just for a quick ocean snapshot! If you want to drive past Seaside, you will hit Cannon Beach, Rockaway Beach, Warrenton, and so many more heading south. We only went a little past Seaside, but then headed back to enjoy the brightly colored shops and delicious food. Oh…and the ocean. 😉

Wink was kind enough to send me some of their products to use on our little trip and I have to say their bright and colorful aesthetic fits right in at the beach, don’t you think? They have a wide range of beach inspired products like pool floats, clothing, beach towels, and of course adorable bags. They’ll also be popping up in my feed this Summer since I’ve discovered I can’t live without the wet bags. I just throw my wet swimsuit in and I’m good to go!

Seaside is one of the larger towns on the coast with 3 shopping districts. (!!!) Unfortunately when the town caters to tourists this much, it means you need to book a hotel far in advance…we found that out the hard way. The south district has a fresh fish market, probably the best in the region. Surfers are spotted on the reg, eating a chocolate covered Twinkie is a great pass time, and why walk when you can ride these things around?!

These Twinkies from The Buzz were life changing. I had a white chocolate dipped cherry cheesecake Twinkie and I will never go back to a regular one after this experience.

Everything is so close down the coast so we made a quick trip to Cannon Beach for that classic Goonies shot! I love the rock formations down here, plus there were a bunch of homes for sale…you know, in case you were interested in buying beachfront property in Oregon.
