Oregon Adventures: Oregon Coast

On the last day of our Oregon trip we drove about an hour and half west to the coast. Normally I’m not a beach and ocean person, I’d much rather be in the mountains, but I’ve fallen in love with the west coast. It’s different from the beaches my family and I would visit in Florida and around the Gulf of Mexico. We visited Cannon Beach and Ecola State Park, luckily they were about 10 minutes away from each other so we didn’t have to travel far. Cannon Beach is a charming tourist town filled with local shops and tons of fresh seafood. It is also home of the famous Haystack Rock, which was an incredible sight. Ecola State Park was lovely and definitely worth the fee you have to pay to get into the park. Both places provide stunning views of the ocean on one side and cliffs with tons of trees on the other. If you are ever in the area, these places are a definite must visit!

We got in around lunchtime so we grabbed lunch at Ecola Seafood Restaurant and Market. This restaurant offered fresh seafood. It was delicious!triptych

Next we got coffee at Insomnia Coffee Co. Such a great coffee shop!
