Oregon Coast

The Oregon Coast is a treasure trove of charming little towns you’ve never heard of. But once you see them, you’ll never forget them. You round the corner on a gorgeous stretch of highway where the waves are breaking on a broad, lovely beach that’s just begging you to get out of the car to take a walk. And lo and behold, here’s the perfect little town with cafes, shops and a historic hotel.
Wheeler (pop. 414) is one of those sweet finds. Located on Highway 101 just south of Manzanita on scenic Nehalem Bay, this former timber town is the perfect stop on your coast road trip. Shop and stroll: Old Wheeler Antiques & Collectibles is an art deco bonanza, and Wheeler Station Antiques is a browser’s paradise. Shop for jewelry, pottery and baskets at Trillium Gallery. Find one-of-a-kind jewelry and clothing at Cultivation and quilting supplies at Creative Fabrics.
Take a walk in Waterfront Park, a one-acre open space with amazing views of the bay, Neahkahnie Mountain and the river estuary. Stay at the beautifully restored Old Wheeler Hotel right downtown. First built in 1920 during the timber boom, the historic building has been lovingly restored. Charming and quiet, the hotel’s rooms have beautiful water views.
