The Oregon Coast should be on your list of places to visit in Oregon. It's not the kind of coast you go to lay on the beach in a bathing suit and cool off in the ocean. It's the kind of coast you go to enjoy a walk on the beach and maybe it's warmer on the coast than Portland that day. The Oregon Coast is interesting and captivating. It is not usually hot and sunny, full of bikinis and surfer dudes. Surfing is most comfortable with wetsuits on. You go there for the beauty of the ocean and the calm crashing waves bubbling up onto the sand tickling the tips of your toes. The sunsets produce some of the most vibrant orange, red, purple, yellow, and blue colors stretching across the sky and reflecting off the wet sand.
