Located in south Tillamook County, Pacific City is less than a two-hour drive from Portland, and even closer to Salem. If you prefer “as the crow flies”, we have a small state owned (unattended) airport in the heart of Pacific City.
Check out the unique gift shops and galleries featuring Oregon artisans. After a day of adventure, we offer dining that caters to a variety of tastes, and you can extend your getaway with lodging at one of our parks, inns, motels or bed-and-breakfasts. Whether you stay the day, the weekend or an extended vacation, Pacific City offers something for everyone.
Bob Straub State Park
Bob Straub State Park is a nice place to go to walk on the beach and explore the Nestucca sand spit. This park is located in Pacific City and provides beach access, parking, and restrooms. The Nestucca River is legendary for 50 pound chinook salmon. This park offers beach access, and opportunities for picnicking, fishing, wildlife watching, marine mammal watching, and bird watching.

Inn at Cape Kiwanda
A luxury boutique hotel at scenic Cape Kiwanda with gas fireplaces, and private patios overlooking the ocean in every room. Down comforters and Starbucks coffee keep you warm. Across the street from the Pelican Pub & Brewery.
Cedar Creek Beach Challenge
The Cedar Creek Beach Challenge starts and finishes right on the beach in Pacific City. An out and back course down the beach toward Bob Straub State Park, you are sure to be distracted by brown pelicans, eagles, seals and even whales in the shadow of the majestic Haystack Rock and beautiful Cape Kiwanda. Held as close to low tide as possible, the run is held on hard packed sand, but you many encounter pools of tidal water and uneven ground. After all, this is the BEACH! The Beach Challenge is a fund raiser for the local community’s child care center and is put on by an all volunteer Board and Staff. After your 5K run/walk, 10K or kids half mile race, stop in at the Pelican Pub & Brewery and show your bib number for a complementary brew or root beer. Run, Walk, have FUN!
Silverspot Butterfly Release Party
Pelican Pub & Brewery, in conjunction with Woodland Park Zoo and other conservation partners, joined to craft the new Silverspot IPA that not only delivers a great taste, but supports an important conservation mission.
The Silverspot IPA was created by Pelican brew masters to celebrate the population augmentation of the threatened Oregon silverspot butterfly in its native grassland habitat.
We’ll be celebrating the release of the Silverspot Butterfly with the Oregon Zoo and Woodland Park Zoo in the banquet room. This event is open to the public. There will be a check presentation from the Pelican Brewing Co. and Silverspot IPA with proceeds to benefit the Zoo.
