“Breathtaking and quaint”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

My daughter and I went to explore and what a sweet surprise the quaint little town with cute little shops that allow your dogs in .. I LOVED it. The beach was beautiful what a refreshing walk. The scenery awesome. Walked down to the haystack Rock which is so impressive. next time I go to Oregon I will plan a longer stay to explore this lovely communi

“Great classic beach town”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

An easy 1 1/2 hour drive from Portland, and we were in this nice quaint beach town. Streets are lined with plants. There were many unique shops and restaurants. The beach was wide and picturesque. Gift shops, craft shops, jewelry shops, art, flavored oil & vinegar shop, bakery, clothing. Great time walking the beach to the Haystack. We arrived around 10:45 AM and had ample street parking. About an hour later, on-street parking was full. So, I would recommend getting there early. Be sure to visit DragonFire Gallery for unique art and glass. Dreams & Discoveries has some nice jewelry and gifts. Very short drive over to Ecola State Park with beautiful views of the beach. A "must see" excursion from Portland.

“we will stay here next time”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

we had picked a place up in Seaside, which is kind of run down_better for families , more for the kids to do here, But Cannon Beach was more upscale, more galleries, better restaurants ...( more expensive though)

“Cannon Beach Community”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Loved the pace of the area and the art community. Not like Lincoln City or Seaside, much quieter pace which we loved. Easy to get around, terrific walking community.

“Best of the Oregon Coast”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Cannon Beach is a wonderful place to visit if you're going out to the Oregon coast. It's large enough that you can find just about any service or type of food/eatery you can think of, but it's also still small enough that it doesn't feel like a large city or a complete tourist trap. It retains the welcoming small coastal town vibe for visitors and residents alike. My favorite spot to stop and stay on the coast, whether it's a day-trip or a week long family vacation.
