There is Magic Here

Photographer

Cannon Beach is a famous, picturesque small-town village by the sea. It’s been recognized as the “best overall beach in Oregon”, one of America’s best art towns, and one of the world’s most beautiful places.

Named after a naval cannon that washed up after a shipwreck in the 1840’s, Cannon Beach has a ton of character. Haystack Rock is a massive towering rock formation off the coast, with adjacent stone “needles”, vibrant tidepools, and flocks of seabirds adorning the landmark. Nearby Ecola State Park is perched dramatically on the edge of a headland and offers panoramic coastal views, easy walking paths to scenic picnic areas, and extensive hiking trails.

Known as one of the Northwest’s top art towns, Cannon Beach is replete with art galleries, specialty shops, cafes, and fine dining restaurants. Visitors can watch glass blowers at work in their studio or attend year-round live theater performances. This creative edge can be seen in everything from the sensibility of the town’s residents to the annual sandcastle building competition that spotlights stunning works of art adorning the sandy beach.
