      Seaside is very expensive to live but it has a lot to offer. We have several places to shop, grab a bite to eat, take in the scenery, and more. I prefer to shop at the University Plaza Shopping Center on Fremont. It is small but has a lot of unique shops and restaurants to choose from.

      The best thing about Seaside is the reasonable priced all year activities for kids offered at the Seaside Recreational Center. I usually sign my kids up for several things throughout the year to keep them busy. The recreational center also has adult exercise classes and senior classes as well. My family usually spends most of our summers here.

      We still have a small town feel, but we are continuing to grow and adding different businesses. Finding jobs in the area should be fairly easy as we are close to several bigger cities. The unemployment rate is below average for our area as there are several jobs to choose from.
