Toledo

Toledo might be one of the Oregon Coast’s best-kept secrets.

Located seven miles inland along the scenic Yaquina River, Toledo nestles up against the wooded foothills of the Coast Range. Tucked away from the dramatic moods of the Pacific Ocean, this sheltered little burg is often sunnier and warmer than other towns when winter storms up the Coast. It’s also a hidden gem of art and history, with galleries and museums aplenty.
