Start your day with a fresh cup of coffee (hot chocolate or a steamer for the kiddos) and a homemade pastry. Locals and visitors alike love their bacon-cheddar “biscones,” a cross between a biscuit and a scone, and decadent cinnamon rolls. 5
Let’s Go Fly a Kite!
Every August the largest kite flying contest in the Northwest happens at Rockaway Beach. Stop by Flamingo Jim’s Gifts and Clothing, to pick up a kite (and other fun beach-themed souvenirs), and join in on the kite flying fun!
Catch some crabs!
Kelly’s Brighton Marina is the perfect place to give crabbing a go. You can toss your trap right off their dock, or head out on a guided crab catching excursion to Nehalem Bay. The friendly crew will even show you how to clean and cook your catch of the day!
Take a tour.
Grab lunch at the Tillamook Creamery where you can indulge in cheesy classics like Tillamook mac & cheese, grilled cheese sandwiches, fried cheese curds, and cheeseburgers. After lunch, enjoy a scoop or two of ice cream, then take a self-guided tour of the creamery, or stop by the market store for a souvenir.
Drop a line at Lytle Lake.
Rockaway Beach’s largest lake covers over 65 acres, and offers a fishing dock and a boat launch. The lake is stocked from mid-March through early May with trout, and large-mouth bass.
