Awesome! I highly recommend to anyone traveling in the Portland area, I think about a 1.5 hr drive from downtown but well worth it. Haystack rock is beautiful and the beach is phenomenal as well. A must see in Oregon!

I drove to Cannon Beach from Portland while staying there for a weekend trip, and the drive itself was a beautiful way to start out that trip. Right through the mountains. Very lovely. Once you drive into Cannon Beach itself, you see the little town (which is absolutely charming. I wish I'd had more time there to explore), you can... More

Cannon Beach, Oregon is a stunningly beautiful place!! It just might be the prettiest beach on the Oregon coast. The small downtown area is charming, with lots of wonderful shops and restaurants. The architecture is charmingly beach style. There's magic in the air!

Be certain to go at low tide so you can see all of the creatures in the tide pools such as seastars and sea urchins, etc. The highlight of our trip to the Oregon Coast.

The best pacific NW beach get-a-way on the oregon coast!! More of a couples get-a-way compared to sea-side which is more honky tonk and geared toward kids; but Cannon Beach is beautiful and if you want your kids to have a nice time on the beach away from the noise and action of every-day life....this is your place.

I've long liked Cannon Beach. It has loads of little shops in which to poke around, TWO very nice wine shops, a local distillery, dining from easy to go up to pretty darn good, a wide variety of places to stay at different price points. AND -- it's a great place to walk along the ocean and gaze at fabulous... More

The beach, the beach the beach. November, cold, windy, beautiful, magic, lots of dogs and kids. Can you think of anything more perfect. Our friends have been going for years. Now we know why.
