Northern Oregon Coast Professional Review and Guide
"A 110-mile drive on a paved highway along the northern Oregon Coast through resorts, picturesque oceanside communities, and forests. The route is framed by forest on the east while offering intermittent views of coastline and small communities on the west. South of Seaside the highways divide and the route continues south, skirts Tillamook Head, weaves by Arch Cape and Cape Falcon, and curves along the shores of Nehalem and Tillamook Bays. After turning inland for twenty-four miles, it returns to the coast near Neskowin, then travels through forest on the final few miles to Lincoln City. Allow more time than you think you’ll need; leisurely travel is virtually a necessity.
The scenery is spectacular. Traffic is usually heavy, even on weekdays, and the narrow, two-lane road has an abundance of curves. Special attractions: Historic sites, spectacular scenery, outstanding seafood, Seaside, Cannon Beach, Haystack Rock, fifteen state parks and waysides, lighthouses, whale and storm watching in season, camping, and fishing. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more."
