Address:   440 Harcourt Ave, Seaside, CA 93955


The second-largest city in Monterey County was once known as the home of Fort Ord, one of the U.S. Army’s most scenic bases. After the base closed in 1994, that beautiful land and its environmental riches became Fort Ord National Monument Park. Now Seaside is known as the home of California State University Monterey Bay. And Fort Ord's former military golf courses, Bayonet and Black Horse, will some day be adjacent to an upscale resort.
