Cannon Beach, Oregon, just an hour or so drive from Portland, is considered to be one of the Oregon coast's favorite beach communities. The flowers in the spring and summer welcome visitors who come to experience the many art galleries, unique restaurants and shopping, festivals, local parks, theatre, the exceptional beach and all that it offers. Haystack Rock, one of the world's largest monoliths, a distinctive icon of the area, is surrounded by fascinating tide pools. There is nothing better than a warm summer or fall day, a gentle breeze blowing off the Pacific Ocean while strolling through this coastal village, enjoying one of its many great restaurants or exploring the wide, sandy beach to fly a kite, build a sand castle or sit in the sun.
Of course, you will love Cannon Beach in the winter as well. Come watch a winter storm roll across the sky and the mighty Pacific Ocean put on a one-of-a kind show. This is the time when the summer crowds along the Oregon coast are gone and the pace slows. When you can spend a little more time with your morning cup of coffee or visiting every nook of that special art gallery. Or sit in your oceanfront suite at Tolovana Inn and take it all in by the fireplace. Now and then on a winter day, the sun is glorious because, despite what some say, it does not rain every day at the beach. Check out the area weather and make reservations at Tolovana Inn soon.
