Jul 7, 2022 | Family Fun

Seaview offers a peaceful beach experience. Lined with historic Victorian and Craftsman homes as well as beach cabins, it’s a pleasant place to simply take a stroll. But there are other things to do in Seaview too!

With several gourmet restaurants, wellness offerings, and plenty of places to simply breathe, this little village may become your favorite beach escape.


1. Take a relaxing stroll along the Discovery Trail.

The portion of the Discovery Trail running through Seaview is a peaceful, sweet-smelling stretch of dunes and shore pines. View the map here for access points.

Once a train station on the Clamshell Railroad, this historic building now houses the award-winning Depot Restaurant. You’ll be dreaming of their mouthwatering dishes long after you return home. Reservations are recommended.


3. Sit around a fire on the beach.

The simplicity of sitting fireside with family and friends while watching a sunset on the beach is hard to beat. Don’t forget to bring folding chairs and blankets!
