About this Business
From Our Editors
North of the inns, along Ecola Creek, the small Whale Park displays a wooden statue of a whale in commemoration of Lewis and Clark, who explored the area in 1806 and bartered with Native Americans for whale blubber. Nowadays, visitors instead gawk at the gray whales from a distance during winter and spring migrations. In December and January, it’s possible to see the gentle giants’ spouts from the beach or from the Tillamook Head lookout point known as Clark’s Point of View at Ecola State Park.The wild, windswept coast and dramatic rock formations—including the iconic Haystack Rock—once led captain Clark to praise the area as “the grandest and most pleasing prospects which my eyes ever surveyed.” Today, resident artists draw inspiration from the same vistas to paint landscapes in watercolors and pastels, viewable in various galleries and on proud grandmothers’ refrigerators throughout town.
