Sunset Beach has been a lakeside and ocean beach community since the 1930's. The area is rich in
history and recreation including deep sea fishing, beachcombing, golf, lakefishing and nearby factory outlet stores. |
down the beach to the wreck of the Peter Iredale, a ship that went aground on a stormy night in the early 1900's. Hike and
bike in nearby Ft. Stevens State Park or see the military museum located there. It was an active duty fort until after WWII
and was shelled by a Japanese submarine during the war.
Visit Ft. Clatsop just down the road. That's where Lewis and
Clark spent the winter during their Northwest journey of discovery and the fee to get in is very reasonable. The towns of
Seaside, Cannon Beach and Astoria are just minutes away and offer plenty of dining, shopping, history and sightseeing. Take
the kids to the prominade in Seaside where they can enjoy the bumper cars and arcades while the adults will love all the shops
along the prom. There are indoor swimming pools open to the public in Seaside and Astoria.
Is the big city more your
style? Drive 1 hour east via Hwy. 26 to Hillsboro, park and take the MAX light rail into downtown Portland, the Oregon Zoo
or to the Portland Airport. Enjoy the numerous summer festivals in the beach towns along the Oregon Coast, or relax on Sunset
beach, watch the sunset and the light house to the north. Be sure to visit the Maritime Museum and the numerous Victorian
homes open to the public in Astoria.
If your ready for some golf there are several courses in the area. Astoria Golf
and Country Club, located at Sunset Beach is a private course. See the link below for info on other North Coast courses. If
you want access to several courses drive 1 hour east to the Hillsboro/Forest Grove/Vernonia area where you'll find several
great courses. McKay Creek is one of my favorites
