Why do People Enjoy Storm Watching on the Coast

December 31st, 2017 by Innkeeper

Storm watching on the Oregon CoastFor some, the idea of traveling to a specific place for storm watching may seem odd.  But those people have probably never experienced storm watching on the Oregon Coast.  It’s sometimes hard to put on a finger on why people return here year after year for this very thing, but we understand why they do.  Storm watching on the Oregon Coast is a magical, awe-inspiring experience that you really must have at least once in your lifetime. With abundant and easy access to the Pacific beaches, it isn’t difficult to find a spot to stare, in awe of nature’s fearsome wrath.  Afterwards, you’ll need a place to retreat into warm.  Enter the Arch Cape Inn & Retreat, Cannon Beach’s premiere boutique hotel.  Book a room today, and get ready to be inspired by Mother Nature.
