The bayfront is a favorite go to spot when we visit the coast. There are several restaurants and retail shops and the Undersea Gardens and Ripley's Believe it or Not and Wax museum are here too. There are seals to view on the docks, canneries with retail fresh fish stands and many large boats to view at the marina.

Enjoyed driving thru so much we had to park and walk along the little shops. Stopped in the pub for a few beers and then walked some more. Beautiful charming town

What a perfect size city on the central Oregon coast to stop and do some window shopping and have a great meal. So many restaurants and shops to see. This seems like the hub of fishing on the coast too with personal tours and commercial fishing.

Perfect place to take a morning walk before the stores open. Docks are open to see the boats, sea lions with less of a crowd. Children can see the sea lions up close.

There were some nice shops and some nice restaurants...and a lot of tourist traps. This is obviously still a working area.

Lovely. The bright sun, warm weather and picturesque setting with the bridge in the distance made for a nice walk along the street. Parking, however, was a challenge, even with a handicapped plackard.

I need to go through the bay front to visit my friends, work, and visit my favorite Thai food location but I am consistently harassed by corrupted cops and detectives talking on their cell phones while driving and almost hitting me, female and male parental child abductors that drink and drive hitting me in crosswalks, as well as mexi noise...
