The Wild Side of the Oregon Coast

Tillamook is a town found within a fertile river valley on the edge of the ocean-adjacent Tillamook Bay. Rich natural resources and beautiful landscapes are abundant.

Located amidst a tangle of rivers and farm fields, Tillamook is renowned for its agriculture that stewards and cultivates the region’s natural beauty. A highly successful dairy industry has led the name Tillamook to be frequently associated with dairy products, and tours of the sophisticated Tillamook Creamery are one of the most popular attractions in town. Restaurants here think local, putting farm and ocean-to-table ingredients to good use in their dishes.

Tillamook has a long history of aviation dating back to the Second World War. Today, it has a public airport and an extensive aviation museum featuring blimps, pilot equipment, and historic airplanes. The area around Tillamook has multiple hiking trails, more than 800 miles of navigable waters for kayaking, and ample crabbing, clamming, and fishing spots within Tillamook Bay.
