Long before European settlers gazed upon these shores, American Indians had lived here for thousands of years.
Perhaps you’ve been on a walk with Drew Roslund, one of the owners of Overleaf Lodge and Fireside Motel. For years, he’s captivated visitors by sharing his extensive knowledge of the geology, history, plants and ecology of the Yachats area.
Just a few yards south of the Overleaf Lodge and Fireside Motel, Smelt Sands State Park is a great place to spy a migrating gray whale, watch a storm approaching the shoreline, photograph a rainbow, or marvel at the sunset.
I walked to the Luna Sea Fish House in the heart of Yachats last Thursday. While I was reading the menu posted on the wall outside the main entrance, a staff member approached me and asked if he could take my order. Right there, outside. No line, no waiting.
The Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport has been a vibrant member of the coastal community since 1992. A trusted resource for ocean education and conservation, it hosts 15,000+ sea creatures native to the Pacific Northwest.
Revisit your favorite spots on the Oregon Coast. Enjoy rainbows over the ocean, Heceta Head Lighthouse in the evening, and Sea Lion Caves. See the ocean spray as it crashes against the jagged cliffs, and the sea foam at Devil’s Churn at Cape Perpetua.
