COAST GUIDE 2017
36 HOURS IN LONG BEACH
Rusty Romance on Washington’s Doomed Long Beach Peninsula
Maybe it’s a keen sense of mortality—or maybe it’s just the failing fishing industry—but a looming sense of loss hangs in the air here.
36 HOURS IN SEASIDE
Visiting Seaside is the Most Classic Way to Experience the Oregon Coast
Unlike Portland, Seaside has barely changed at all in the past two decades.
36 HOURS IN WAKONDA
We Visited Wakonda, A Place That Ken Kesey Invented for a Book, Which Exists Anyway
“All up and down the West Coast,” Kesey wrote in 1963, “there are little towns much like Wakonda."
36 HOURS IN TILLAMOOK
Compared to Most of the Oregon Coast Tillamook is Still Wild and Secluded
A visit to Tillamook County comes with seclusion—the trails, roads and docks aren’t clogged with out-of-towners.
36 HOURS IN ASTORIA
Astoria is The Best Place in Oregon For A Weekend Bender
It is, perhaps, the most Oregon place in Oregon.
36 HOURS IN CANNON BEACH & MANZANITA
There’s More Cool Stuff in Cannon Beach and Manzanita Than You Might Think
Cannon Beach has long served as the Oregon Coast’s playground for Portland’s well-to-do. Manzanita, a few miles down U.S. Highway 101, is now joining the party.
36 HOURS IN LINCOLN CITY
Lincoln City is Totally Underrated and Chock-Full of Surprises
Shockingly good eats, homey watering holes, rewarding hikes and odd pieces of local culture that belie the city’s undercover weirdness.
36 HOURS IN NEWPORT
36 Hours of Beer, Beaches and Barking Sea Lions in Newport and Yachats
Newport is a blue-collar town where the crabbers are crabby and fishermen have big trucks and big guns.
