The Oregon Coast is a special place; there’s no doubt about it. Living here means you get to explore miles of beaches all year long and, if you’re lucky, find the occasional glass float on the shore. Keep an eye out for whales and other wildlife—you never know what you’ll see! If you want a change of scenery, just head inland to be surrounded by old-growth trees and lush plant life.
Whether you’re retiring to a coastal village or raising a family in a quiet small town, the Oregon Coast is a place to make memories that will last a lifetime. Romantic sunsets, adventures on the water, and peaceful walks in the woods are just a few of the ways you can spend your time. Of course, every town has its own character, so you can always spend the day exploring the neighboring areas.
