Cannon Beach is a city in Clatsop County, Oregon, United States. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Oswald West State Park and Rockaway Beach Wayside. Relax by the water at Haystack Rock and Cannon Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cannon Beach: Astoria (Columbia River Maritime Museum, Lightship Columbia, &more). There's still lots to do: admire the majestic nature at Ecola State Park, visit a coastal fixture at Tillamook Rock Light, see the interesting displays at Seaside Inverted Experience, and indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas.

Pasco to Cannon Beach is an approximately 5-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of car and flight.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Lincoln City.
