Cannon Beach and Seaside Oregon

If you've never been to Cannon Beach, this may seem like an ugly picture to you. The reality, however, is that these rocks are a lot of the draw to this wonderful beach. When the tide is high, these slippery green rocks are covered in water. As the tide goes down, they turn into wonderful pools that trap sea-life to explore! As a kid, I always got excited at the thought of discovering treasures in these tide pools. As an adult I still share that same excitement!

If tide pools, beach treasures, and sea creatures aren't your thing, just a few miles down the road is Seaside, Oregon. Seaside has lots of fun things to do in the very tourist-driven town, as well as relaxing family-friendly beaches. Perfect for flying a kite, making sandcastles, or just relaxing and enjoying the view - it's perfect for all ages!

  1. Wow, I have never traveled to this part of Oregon! I must put this at the top of my list ... a childhood friend and her sister who now live in Phoenix spent one month in Seaside this summer. They fell in love with it .......

  2. It's a beautiful area, and one of my favorite places along the Oregon coast to go and relax!
