    This is a great easy walk through a beautiful area. The boardwalk is well kept. Some areas you would want to hang onto your child as there aren't hand rails but it's a great family activity. There is a very small parking lot.

    Kelly's cooks the crab while you sit around a hugh open log fire and the most comfortable wood chairs. The crab is succulent, swee and the taste of ocean water, so delicious. Many people were eating theirs warm on the seating area overlooking the bay. It is one of the few places to get crab year round and the people are so friendly.

    People rent boats and crabbing equipment, others camp in RV's or available tents. Enjoy the fire and watch the seagulls. Loved my visit and my two crabs.

    An excellent beach to visit with families. Fun to collect rocks, seashells and even make sandcastles.

    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

    Interesting artwork, but I don't think the water is actual rain from various months. Just my opinion and I'm afraid it would eventually evaporate over time like a snow globe. A little expensive as $75 was the lowest price for a du drop. They are pretty in a grouping.

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

    This place is awesome! I was able to grab all my little souvenirs and trinkets for a really great price. I stopped by when we first got into town, told my family and we all went back again. It’s fun, eclectic, and all around great place to stop in.
