    Weather was spotty, crabbing wasn’t great. We brought in 7 but only one keeper. The staff were great. Both the lady working inside and the crab cooker/ cleaner. Very helpful and friendly. I had inquired about the clams and while cleaning my crab, he cooked up a few to try. Go Michigan.

    Very nice beach town. Lots of shops and things to do. Great pastry shops too!! There’s a railroad with a scenic tour you can take.

    Green and more green. A wonderful easy hike/walk on a boardwalk, through lush ferns and trees. I recommend this as a nice break for a weary traveler or for parents to get their bored kids out of the car to breath in nature

    International Police Museum has moved to 320 S. Hwy 101, inside the Washed Ashore Craft Mall, open 10:00 to 6:00 Tuesday through Saturday (971) 306-1043

    See artifacts dating from 1829, an Oregon Boot restraint from the 1860s and see atrifacts from Richard " Dick" Tracy, Multnomah County Jail. See also State of Oregon Police artifacts and a uniform of the Tillamook County Sheriff's Possse, 1950s.

    The collection of handcuff restraints is interesting.

    When you stop in here you'll drive down the hill and park to the right.. a small store but has quite a few little things in it some are kind of eclectic and fun ....but the best part of this place is not only the small Bay out front but the fresh crabs, muscles, oysters and anything else I believe they can scrounge up out of the water in front of where they're at we had some crab and a couple pounds of steamer clams the clams were absolutely wonderful pulled right out of the steam play tadhana of Trey and eaten within a couple of minutes they will not only pick out great crab for you they'll cook it clean it give it to you to eat there or put it on ice into plastic bags so you can put it in the car and take it home we were down there for a week and stopped in here to get our crab and are Steamers absolutely excellent place the two guys that are working there are great make sure you ask for Einstein he's a great guy a good cook and we'll get you what you need definitely a place to stop in I know there are several places along the road but the locals as well as when we were there found out this place is great the people there are super Stop get some fresh seafood and chat about what's going on in the community.....

    St Mary's by the Sea is a wonderfully welcoming Catholic Parish in Rockaway Beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It's a small church but everyone is made to feel so welcome. Fr. Mac is a great Presider who gives great homilies. Daily Mass at 9:30a.m. on Monday & Wednesday - Friday. Weekend Masses at 5:30p.m. on Saturday and Sundays at 8:30a.m. & 10:30a.m.

    We went in Mid July on a sunny day. The beach is very easy to access from the parking lot and is several miles long very wide and nice white sand. Nice view of mountains in the distance. Not too much vegetation near the beach

    Lots of cute gifts, handmade crafts, resale items. Prices are very reasonable. Friendly staff, seems to be dog friendly, too. Neat and clean inside.

    Perfect spot to take some good photos and admire the beauty. Not far from town...just be careful of train tracks.

    There are tons of stores on the Oregon Coast, so it has to be interesting to stand out. And that can be said of Flamingo Jim's! Lots to look at, inside and out. Very interesting yard and garden statues -- very fun! Good selection of clothing and souvenirs. Fun for the whole family.

    This was one of the best glass places we have been to so far, we stop at 1 every trip. Both kids did their own items. He was super patient with them 11 and 13 years old. lots of seating to watch them good safety procedures too. Took few days to catch him open again to pu items but we where there for 10 days and hes right on hwy. Does need better parking but I dont think he can do anything about that. Absolute must go to place in Rockaway, will go back every year!!

    Loved our visit here, it was a very fun place to hang out, so fun that we even stuck around and sang some karaoke with the locals after dinner. Everyone was so friendly and engaging, the drinks were good, and the prices were very reasonable. Great staff. We will definitely be back! :)

    Cat and Dubois are some of the sweetest people I know. I believe in them and their products. Their art is worth every penny! And if you’re VERY lucky, Cat may sing to you!! 💖
