Depends on what your budget is, but I think renting a car is the best way to go. It gives you the most flexability. From the airport, it is almost 2 hours to Cannon Beach, and is a straight shot out. Just head west to Portland, then west on hwy 26 all the way to the coast to hwy 101, and then Cannon Beach is just a couple miles south of there. Very easy drive:)

Don't rent a car at the airport though, because it will cost at least an arm ;-) Check the various majors that have offices downtown, Then plan on taking the MAX lightrail to a stop near an office. Budget is within easy walking distance of a MAX stop, charges far less money and also allowed us to return the car to the airport for no extra charge.

Also, if you are a Costco member, check their prices through Costco.com as they have some great deals.

It's about 2 hours to the coast and once you are there you'll probably want to tour around on your own time and stop at various parks :-)

If a car rental proves to be just too pricey, there are buses to the coast. Just let me know if you need any more information!

Renitng a car would be the way to go, then you could explore the surrounding area such as Seaside, Manzanita, Gearhart and Astoria. The coast is very scenic and driving it is lots of fun. Be sure to bring your camera. www.cannon-beach.net :)
