If you’re planning a trip to Oregon, you probably want to visit beautiful beaches, hike through dense forests, and kayak to mysterious sea caves. But none of that is possible on an empty stomach! In the Pacific Northwest, visitors need to know where to go for a good meal. We recommend traveling 20 minutes south of Cannon Beach to the quaint town of Manzanita. Manzanita restaurants are diverse, offering fresh and delicious seafood, sandwiches, burgers, and more! Check out a few of our favorite eateries below.
