    seashore/seaside

    Hi

    Do these two mean the same:

    1. Do you like going to the seashore?

    2. Do you like going by the seaside?

    Thanks

    Yes you can use them interchangeably, possibly 'seashore' is more American, 'seaside' is certainly very British.

    Re: seashore/seaside

    In the US, you'd say you like going to "the shore" or "the beach" depending on where you live.
