Greetings from a place so extraordinary that Oregonians would not think of making it off-limits.

Exercise your right to explore all 584 kilometers of jaw-dropping beauty along an area known as the People’s Coast of Oregon. Discover marshes, seaside cliffs, agricultural valleys and wind-sculpted dunes along the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway, which traces the entire Oregon coastline along Highway 101. Check out every crab shack, tide pool, viewpoint, fishing spot and boutique.

From North to South

On your journey, you can explore 79 state parks, 11 lighthouses and 11 Conde B. McCullough-designed historical bridges and eat the freshest seafood just caught that morning. Discover kilometers of open beaches, where you can surf, fly a kite, build a sandcastle or roast a marshmallow while watching a spectacular sunset.

Find rich maritime history and famous Tillamook cheese on the North Coast. The Central Coast is home to a world-class aquarium and America’s largest sea cave. And on the South Coast, you can play five internationally known golf courses at the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, which Golf Digest ranks at No. 2 in the world for favorite buddies-golf getaways. 

A Friendly Welcome

Along the way, you’ll find friendly towns, each with its own unique character and folks eager to help you explore all the Oregon Coast has to offer. Rest a little easier with all of the purchases you will want to make: In Oregon, shopping is tax-free.

It’s a law in Oregon that the entire coast is free and open to everybody. Start exploring all 584 kilometers on your next holiday.
