One of Seaside's most popular attractions is the Carousel Mall right in the center of town on Broadway.

The classic and colorful carousel that sits in the middle of Seaside's Carousel Mall is one of the city's most popular attractions. The mall itself features more than 15 stores all under one roof and lots to do. First, you're never too old to ride a carousel, so get on board and take a pony, a rabbit or a seahorse for a spin. Enjoy a latte and a muffin at Caffe Latte before browsing through the shops for clothing, souvenirs and gifts. Be amazed at the variety of shells at By the Sea Shells and play a little "I remember those," at the Flashback Malt Shoppe. Take a step back in time and have a family photo taken at Flash from the Past Old Time Photos or have your portrait drawn by a local artist at Oregon Coast Portraits. Buy a little bauble from the Jewelry Box and have lunch or dinner at Chen's Golden Horse Chinese Restaurant. Not ready to leave yet? Take the kids to the Family Arcade Games and shop while they play. The Carousel Mall is open seven days a week from 10am.
