Life on the Oregon Coast

The Oregon coast is charmed with a variety of things to do. If you love being surrounded by natural beauty, outdoor recreation, or that sense of community connection from small-town living, this is the place for you. You may spend an afternoon hiking in the Tillamook State Forest, climbing to the top of Neah-kah-nie mountain for a breathtaking view, watching the sun go down on the ocean horizon, attending a play or music concert at a local venue, or visiting a local restaurant for a night out. Explore more about why we love life on the Oregon coast.

Behavioral Health Clinician
“I moved to the Tillamook area because I love running and hiking. I also wanted to live somewhere where I could easily learn new things. Since living on the Oregon coast, I have learned how to surf, fish from a kayak, clam and crab, and mountain bike….and there is still so much more to learn!”
Dana Reynolds
Communications Specialist
“The Oregon coast is full of arts and culture. There is always an art workshop to try, live music at a local venue, or a performance to attend. Some community groups I love include the Bay City Arts Center and the Riverbend Players.”
