Whale watching center
There's a very neat whale watching center (complete with out-of-the-weather viewing window and telescope thing) along the ocean right in town along the highway.It also serves as a Depoe Bay museum, with photographs, arctifacts and history.One of the many interesting things...
A dramatic wayside park along US 101 just north of Depoe Bay, Boiler Bay presents a dramatic view over the breakers churning around the small bay and northwards towards Lincoln City and Cascade Head beyond. In the early 1900's a ship caught fire offshore, drifted in here and...
A large sea cave carved from sandstone had its roof collapse after centuries of wave erosion. That process continues through two openings in the seaward wall. From atop, you can gaze down as the waves continue to brew. A trail to the north leads down to some nice tide pools...
From atop this 500-foot high headland, you can see out to 40 miles at sea on a clear day. Captain James Cook named the headland on March 7, 1778 on a day of storm-tossed seas. Storm-tossed or not, Cook was moving since he also spotted Cape Perpetua, 40 miles south, on the...
DEPOE BAY BRIDGE

This is the harbor entrance through the rocks, which can accommodate boats up to fifty feet in length.

Gracie's Sea Hag Restaurant and Lounge: Recommended by Michael Burkett
Prior to a February trip to the coast, my boss said, "Be sure to eat at the Sea Hag in Depoe Bay ... It has the best clam chowder." While the jury's still out on the "best" (I'm still on a years-long quest), it was dang good.The Sea Hag has been a main stay on Main Street...

I suggest eating at Tidal Raves. The service was friendly and very efficient. The food was wonderful. The view for lunch at the restaurant made the meal even better. We overlooked the bay with a view of the back to Inn at Arch Rock. The day was sunny, warm and moderate...
We stroll through the village and along the harbor. At one of the stands we bought a bag of caramelized popcorn, the local specialty, it’s very sweet and filling.
A secret resort (of sorts)
It's a place called Bella Beach - really quite amazing and different in a lot of ways. This resort of vacation rental homes sits just north of Depoe Bay, and is like a small, gorgeous little town all itself. It's like dreamy Americana meets the future - in an upscale yet...
YAQUINA BAY BRIDGE
Some of the most graceful bridges in the US can be found along the length of US 101. Conde McCullough was the State Bridge Engineer for most of them during his reign of 1919-1935. Here, the Yaquina Bay Bridge - completed in 1936 - was one of the five major bridges of the...
