Pacific City, Oregon: Small Coastal Town with Outdoor Fun
Pacific City is a quaint town on the coast of Oregon, 60 minutes from Salem and less than two hours from Portland. There’s lots to do in this laid-back fishing village, especially if you like the outdoors. Pacific City pulls visitors in with its surfing, fishing, and kayaking opportunities, as well as its proximity to Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area. This state park has long expanses of clean beaches, miles of hiking trails, and is a popular place to catch a wave or go hang-gliding. Don’t miss a chance to go for a horseback ride along the coast near Bob Straub State Park, another popular outdoor destination, or to go crabbing on the sand. For those staying in the winter, Pacific City offers outstanding whale watching.
