The North Coast

Distinctive coastlines, historic towns, old folk tales, and thriving, eclectic communities. Where the Columbia River meets the swells of the Pacific Ocean, the North Coast is the convergence of the past and the present, the old and the new.

Distinctive coastlines, historic towns, old folk tales, and thriving, eclectic communities. Where the Columbia River meets the swells of the Pacific Ocean, the North Coast is the convergence of the past and the present, the old and the new.

Oregon’s North Coast has a lot of history, and you can see it everywhere you go. In the names of towns and landmarks, the distinctive coastal architecture, in shipwrecks and the lighthouses built to prevent them. Exploring the North Coast feels like (and is) exploring Oregon’s past.

Yet while the past leaves its mark, the present brings new opportunities, endeavors, and ideas. When a region holds both — one in each hand — then you have a special place. See the artistic and rugged coastal towns, the long stretches of uninterrupted sandy beaches, and the powerful winter storms that sank unwary ships. Taste the bounty of the sea, prepared in old family recipes and fresh, experimental dishes. Find a secluded spot and reflect on the power and vastness of the sea. It’s all on Oregon’s North Coast.
