Traveling to the west coast has so many sights to behold both in the cities as well as out in the great wild of its ocean sounds and woods. And if you’re passing through Oregon, you won’t want to move too fast or you might miss some sights to behold. According to Christopher Elliott of the Huffington Post, the Oregon coast has some hidden spots that you may not find in regular travel magazines. Much of it comes not only from the coastal beach formations, but also in the surrounding landscapes.
When traveling out to this part of the west coast, you’ll certainly take notice of a lot of dunes but in close proximity to cliff formations lining the shore. They’re the perfect places to do a little climbing and exploring, and those who have gotten to the top have spoken in great terms about the fantastic view you’ll find. There are also several rivers flowing out into the Pacific including Salmon River and if you want to experience beauty in the water, taking a kayak tour in this vicinity is a great idea.
Another place Elliott wrote about as a great visit is the Cape Meares Lighthouse and Wildlife area that lets you go up into a historic lighthouse and then go out into a wildlife park where you just might catch some exotic animals at play. And there are even points of interest in the small towns on the coast including the Tillamook Cheese Factory and the Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel. No matter where you go, it’s almost certain that you won’t be disappointed.
