North Oregon Coast Blog

The Northern Oregon Coast is a mecca for artists, roadtrippers, nature lovers, outdoor adventurers and anyone looking to lose themselves in this wonderful, rugged wilderness. These towns – starting with the lush Long Beach Peninsula in Washington and stretching south to the communities around Tillamook – present a natural playground where cliffs meet the coast, beaches burst with whale-watching outposts, seaside towns provide playful diversions and plenty of family-friendly entertainment as well as bucolic scenes of rolling fields dotted with happily grazing dairy cows. The history and culture flowing through the Northern Oregon Coast brims with fascinating stories, people and traditions – ones that shape the places you see today and continue to influence happenings throughout the region.

Each week, our Northern Oregon Coast blogger, Emily, explores much-anticipated events or delves into a piece of the area’s history or coastal culture. It’s like sitting down with your local friend who’s in the know on the hottest stuff. Her blogs keep you savvy on exciting, upcoming Northern Oregon Coast events, activities beyond the typical sightseeing adventures, movers and shakers changing these communities or the secret significance behind sights and norms in the towns that seem so unassuming at first glance. Check in with Emily each week to stay up-to-date on everything going on around the Northern Oregon Coast.
