Travel the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway

The Pacific Coast Scenic Byway travels for 383 glorious miles, from the northern tip of Oregon’s coastline all the way to the California border, and the entire length of it is open to the public for enjoyment and exploration.  Along the way, you’ll see rugged headlands, pounding waves, easy to access sandy beaches, old growth forests, and tide pools teaming with life.  Coastal communities are welcoming, each with their own unique blend of character and coastal charm.  The Pacific Coast Scenic Byway begins in the beautiful and historic town of Astoria, and continues from there. Things you’ll want to see along the way include: the Columbia River Maritime Museum, Fort Stevens State Park, where the mighty Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean, and Pacific Coast Scenic Byway Oregonthe charming town of Seaside with it’s charming 1920s-era promenade and boardwalk games.

Once you enter the town of Cannon Beach, head to the Arch Cape Inn & Retreat, and sit back and relax for a few days while you explore the artsy coastal town of Cannon Beach.  Here, there are plenty of galleries, boutiques, and restaurants to enjoy, along with beautiful views of 235-foot Haystack Rock that lies just offshore. Ecola State Park has beautiful hiking trails and beaches, sandy coves, and the cliff-edged cape of Tillamook Head, which offers extraordinary views of the famous Tillamook Rock Lighthouse.  Explore the waterfall and caves at Hug Point, and take in Mother Nature’s dramatic show from the restful accommodations of our beautiful Bed and Breakfast.

After a restful few days here, feel free to continue exploring the remainder of Oregon’s coast to the south.  There, you’ll find coastal gems like the Tillamook Cheese factory, Cape Meares Lighthouse, the Cascade Head Preserve, the Oregon Coast Aquarium, the Heceta Head Lighthouse, Sea Lion Caves, and the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.

The accommodations and luxurious amenities found at the Arch Cape Inn & Retreat are spectacular, but it’s nothing compared to the coastal beauty of the Cannon Beach area.  Nature takes center stage on the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway, and rightfully so.
