Pacific City is located just off of Highway 101 on a small loop that extends west towards the Pacific Ocean. There are two large rivers, The Big Nestucca and The Little Nestucca that merge to create an estuary and habitat for a variety of natural species.
If you are into fishing, crabbing and clamming, this is a fine vacation choice for you. There are two Salmon runs, one in the spring and one in the fall, that run up The Big Nestucca located right in the center of town. The locals of Pacific City indicate that on any given day during crabbing season, a local crabber may need to offer excess crab to passersby on the street as they have effortlessly exceeded their limit.
Take a stroll on the beach and enjoy seeing some wildlife. Just a few of the local inhabitants include bald eagles, pelicans, herons, seals, sea lions, otters and porpoises. Pacific City is also a favorite for whale watchers. Come see the migration of the amazing gray whale in March and May.
Maybe an afternoon of antiquing and a fine dinner out is what calls to you on vacation. With many local shops to explore, you’re sure to find an abundance of unique treasures. There are also many dining choices to tempt you after a long day of shopping.
