The Oregon Coast: Officially Yours
Greetings from a place so extraordinary, that here in Oregon we wouldn’t even think of making it off-limits. Exercise your right to explore all 363 miles of jaw-dropping beauty on the People’s Coast. Discover marshes, seaside cliffs, agricultural valleys and wind-sculpted dunes along The Pacific Coast Scenic Byway, which traces the entire Oregon coastline along Highway 101.
Check out every crab shack, tide pool, viewpoint, fishing spot and boutique. (In Oregon, shopping is tax-free.) On your journey, you can explore 79 state parks, 11 lighthouses, and 11 Conde B. McCullough-designed historical bridges; eat the freshest seafood just caught that morning; and not to mention discover miles of open beaches where you can surf, fly a kite, build a sandcastle or roast a marshmallow while watching a spectacular sunset.
Find rich maritime history and famous Tillamook cheese on the North Coast. The Central Coast boasts both a world-class aquarium and America’s largest sea cave. And on the South Coast, you’ll find some of the best golfing on the planet at the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, which Golf Digest ranks at No. 2 in the world for favourite buddies-golf getaways. Along every mile, you’ll find friendly towns, each with their own unique character and folks eager to help you explore all the Oregon Coast has to offer.
It’s a law in Oregon that the entire coast is free and open to everybody. Start exploring all 363 extraordinary miles (584 KM) on your next holiday!
