Oregon Things to Do: 284 reviews and 504 photos


If you're an experienced Oregon Coast traveler, you've already discovered Rockaway Beach. If not, here's your chance to plan a vacation to one of the most family oriented towns on the North Oregon Coast.

Recreation opportunities abound in Rockaway Beach and merchants will be delighted to provide any equipment or knowledge needed to enjoy almost any excursion. For example, kite flying is an important activity for any vacation to the coast (especially in Rockaway Beach). However, if you neglected to pack your kite, several shops in town can help find the perfect flyer.

If you want to go with a more nautical theme, why not try clamming, crabbing, of fishing? All of which are within a few miles of Rockaway Beach. Even novices can revel in these activities and getting set up can be made simple.

Also, don't miss a ride on the 'Fun Run Excursion Train'. The community operated train makes regular stops in Rockaway Beach during the summer months and is a 'must do' on any vacation.

There is wide variety of lodging and dining in Rockaway Beach. From ocean view dining to home cookin', finding a meal that appeals to your tastes shouldn't be difficult. You'll be surprised by the medley of accommodations. Hotels, Motels, RV Parks, and Vacation Rentals all specialize in providing a comfortable and memorable vacation.
