Neawanna by the Sea is a premier Assisted Living and Independent Living Community in Seaside, Oregon, that serves the city and all of Clatsop County, as well as Cannon Beach, Gearhart, Astoria, Warrenton, and Portland. No matter where you’ve lived before, we’d be honored to have you call Neawanna by the Sea home.

A beautiful and fun resort city in the northwest part of Oregon, Seaside sits along the coast of the Pacific Ocean. Visitors flock from around the world to enjoy a day at the beach flying a kite or riding in bumper cars and enjoying treats at the famous Seaside Promenade or “Prom” – a one-and-a-half-mile-long walkway on the coast. Visitors will also find the Seaside Aquarium and a Lewis and Clark monument along the Prom. Seaside was the last location where the early explorers reached the ocean before turning around on their expedition.
