Cannon Beach is a popular tourist destination on the Oregon Coast. Because its reputation is widespread, the town gets crowded. It would have been nice to stop and look around the town, but it was hard to find a parking place. It took a lot of concentration not to pick off some errant tourist wandering into the street. Still, it... More

Beautiful ocean beach...broke a pair of sandals having way too much fun chasing the waves. Never found a place to buy sandals for adults that were not designer - sometimes you just need everyday flip-flops...entrepreneurs take note! Stopped at the glass blowing shop - beautiful!

First timer to the Pacific Coast! We started at Cannon Beach & worked our way down the coast. I think we made an excellent decision, as it is a compilation of stunning views, wonderful shops & courteous people. They are good to the dogs, which goes a long way in my book! Haystack Rock is the focal point, but views... More

Great small town charm right on the sand. We stayed at The Waves, which was great! Highly recommend. Lazy Susan's is also a great place for breakfast too.

Coming from the prairies, Cannon Beach renews my soul every time. It's easy to walk for an hour and lose track of time. Just 90 minutes from Portland, this is a supreme destination.

This is a beautiful beach and small charming town. Although it was too cold for swimming when we visited one could spend hours playing on the beach.

On our first time trip to Portland and to the Pacific Northwest, we knew we had to visit the coast. Cannon Beach is an easy 1.5 hour drive from Portland, and is a cool little beach town. Haystack Rock was magnificent, and the town itself was fun and charming. There are countless dining and shopping options, but the people watching... More

Liked everything about Cannon Beach. The flowers, the beaches, the hikes, the cottages, the park rangers that come out just to talk about the wildlife, the food, the galleries, the views from Ecola SP. Stayed at the Ecola Creek lodge. Had a fireplace in July! Big deal for a Florida gal.

Spent a week in this charming town. If you love the beach, you'll love it but you have to appreciate overcast skies a lot of the time. The 4 mile beach is great for walking. Fine sugary sand and at low tide there are lots of sand bars. The tide pools at Haystack rock are interesting as is the rock... More

We enjoyed our day on Cannon Beach a lot. I will just say that there is a ton of people and dogs everywhere. We moved further down the beach away from Haystack Rock just to get away a little bit. Certainly worth spending a day there. Just be prepared for lots of people.
