    Chamber Information Center

    Chamber of Commerce info center.

    Favorite thing: A general tip (though not my favorite thing) is to visit the Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce information center.
    There you will find free brochures, a whole magazine about Cannon Beach, souvenirs, post cards and someone to answer questions about Cannon Beach.
    The information center is sited in a very attractive building -- in line with the rest of the town -- at 2nd and Spruce, right next to a large public parking area and on a main drag.
    The chamber is very active in the community, and is the sponsor of such things as Sandcastle Day in June and the Stormy Weather arts festival in November.
    Its self-proclaimed mission is to not only promote a healthy business environment for Cannon Beach, but one that is protective of the aesthetics and livability of the town.

    Visit the chamber's Web site at www.cannonbeach.org (there's lots of information and links!) and e-mail at chamber@cannonbeach.org.

    Haystack Rock

    Haystack Rock

    Favorite thing: Cannon Beach is best known for Haystack Rock, a rocky monolith jutting out of the water that's been designated as a marine and bird sanctuary. Puffins nest here in the summertime. It's a nice place to walk along the beach and commune with nature.

    The inter-tidal zone (area of the beach between high tide and low tide) is full of small limpets, barnacles, and colorful starfish, and lends itself nicely to quiet exploration and contemplation.

    Trails along the Coast

    near Cannon Beach

    Favorite thing: Besides walking right on the beach, there are a number of trails right outside of town that wander along forested cliffs by the ocean and give you some good lookouts up and down the coast. Much of the year mists and fog banks roll in and out from the Pacific.

    Ecola State Park is a good place to start. Ecola means whale in the Native American Chinook language, and you can see migrating orcas and gray whales from here in the spring.

    A town of Flowers

    Pretty Busy

    Favorite thing: While the beach is wonderful, I've never been anywhere that has more beautiful displays of flowers than the four block long "downtown" section of Cannon Beach. The variety of flowers is truly breath taking.

    Fondest memory: The way the beach changes with every turning of the tide.

    Fondest memory: My fondest memory is the early morning walk and the beautiful houses build so close to the beach. I would love to live at a place like that.
