When you have an area that encompasses a handful of small beach towns, each with its own personality, you know you will always find adventures. The list of Tillamook things to do goes well beyond the obvious – but still mightily worthy – outdoors-oriented choices. But let's start with those since they are so popular. Most people who visit this area, and particularly those who live here, are drawn to the sea and the environmental wonderland it creates. One of the most awe-inspiring is Oswald State Park, a verdant, dense rainforest that hugs the coast in this area for miles. Within its borders, among the many things to do in Tillamook are hiking and surfing. Then, head off to explore Cape Lookout State Park, the Tillamook Forest Center and the Munson Creek Falls. Then there are the trees! If you're a tree hugger, you're in heaven here since these towering evergreens overlook most of the area. But moving inside, the list of Tillamook things to do is still long and interesting. Love ice cream and cheese? Definitely come for a visit! The milk from our pretty cows produces some pretty amazing products, and you can learn all about them at the Tillamook Cheese Factory, which was established close to 125 years ago. Stop into local museums that feature pioneer history, quilts and WWII air defense.
