Pristine beauty, tide pools and seafood— the Oregon Coast is a world unto itself, and perfect location for a weekend getaway. Explore by car, and travelers soon find that Oregon’s coastal Highway 101 is a treasure trove of quaint fishing towns embedded with rivers, state parks and waysides. Luxuriate in Newport’s Oregon Coast Aquarium, Lincoln City’s Kite Festival, Bandon’s world-class golf courses, Seaside’s shoreline promenade and Cannon Beach’s haven of artists, cooks, collectors, connoisseurs and choices for lodging. And if checking out and exploring the coast by foot sounds like your type of coastal getaway, explore the smaller beach hamlets of Manzanita, Neskowin, Oceanside, Netarts and Yachats, where visitors can beach comb for shells, floats and other goodies that drift in from all over the world.
