I am looking for a place to go to that is on the beach but not too far from Washington state to take my family to in the summer. Suggestions? – Alicia P.
You’re in luck, as Oregon’s north coast has plenty of places to stay at the beach. You’ll find lots of rentals and hotels and lovely beaches in Pacific City, Rockaway Beach, Manzanita, Cannon Beach, Seaside, and Astoria (though Astoria is actually about a 10 miles inland, it’s the closes to Washington – right across the river!).

Rockaway Beach is an excellent choice for old fashion summer fun. Seven miles of wide open beaches, the Kite Festival, an old fashion summer recreation program for the kids, hiking in the Nature Preserve old growth forest, old fashion 4th of July Parade, Labor Day Carnival in the Park, Friday night bon fires on the beach and street dances! What more could you ask for?
