Heading to the Oregon Coast

Tillamook, Oregon

The City of Tillamook is located on the southeast end of the Tillamook Bay on the Pacific Ocean. The Tillamook area has fiver rivers, the Tillamook, the Trask, the Wilson, the Kilchis, and the Miami. Welcome to Dairy Farm Country! The farmland used for dairy cattle supply the Tillamook County Creamery Association’s production of cheese, particularly cheddar, ice cream and yogurt.

The Tillamook Cheese Factory

The Tillamook Cheese Factory is the Tillamook County Creamery Association’s original cheese production facility. Tours are self-guided. You cannot tour inside the actual cheese processing area, but can see the cheesemaking process and cheese packing process from the viewing gallery over the main production floor. I enjoyed watching the various processes going on. The Tillamook Cheese Factory hosts over 1 million tourists each year.

Cheese Anyone???

Cannon Beach, Oregon

Cannon Beach is best known by its famous landmark, Haystack Rock! Cannon Beach is pretty compact and pedestrian friendly. Famous Movies Filmed in Cannon Beach and Ecola State Park; The Goonies (1985), Point Break (1991) and Twilight (2008).


Welcome to Cannon Beach!


Haystack Rock

Haystack Rock is located southwest of downtown Cannon Beach near Tolovana Park. Haystack Rock is 235 feet in elevation and often accessible at low tide. Near Haystack Rock are the Needles, two tall rocks rising straight out of the water. Haystack Rock is protected as a marine sanctuary as part of the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge.

Seaside, Oregon

Seaside is a Great Jumping Off Point to see the Oregon Coast! Seaside lies on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. The Necanicum River bisects the city and flows out to the ocean at the city’s northern edge. Tillamook Head towers over the south edge of the city.

Interesting Facts:

  • In 1806, a group of men from the Lewis and Clark Expedition built a salt-making cairn to make salt from the Pacific Ocean to replenish their supply.
  • In 1912, Alexandre Gilbert was elected Mayor of Seaside. Gilbert donated land to the City of Seaside for its one and a half mile long Promenade along the Pacific beach.

Welcome to Seaside!
