Pacific City, OR is an absolute jewel of a beach town, north of Lincoln City and South of Manzanita, on a stunning stretch of coastline overlooking its famous Haystack Rock and the Cape Kiwanda Headland.
Known amongst generations of Oregonians as a quaint fishing town famous for launching Dory Boats off the main beach, Pacific City has blossomed to include a small-but-mighty “town center” that includes a great coffee shop, popular post-surf taco stand, a grocer to gather supplies (and ice cream!), an upscale ocean view restaurant and bar and a beloved beachfront brewpub where you can drink craft beer with your feet in the sand as you watch the sunset. A stay at a Meredith Lodging Pacific City vacation rental puts you in walking distance of all that this beautiful town has to offer.
The unique geography of Pacific City is another thing you will notice when you check-in to your Pacific City vacation rental. It is incredibly unique to have a large river (The Big Nestucca) hug the ocean shoreline so closely and so close to another large river (The Little Nestucca). These rivers near the sea all come together to create a habitat and estuary that attracts all kinds of flora and fauna specific to the Oregon Coast.
Wondering what else there is to do when you book a stay in a Meredith Lodging Pacific City vacation rental? We have put together go-to favorites for a weekend spent in one of the best places on the Oregon Coast:
Start your day with local coffee and a pastry (or chia pudding!) at Stimulus Coffee + Bakery
A hike up the dune of Cape Kiwanda is an exercise-burner the whole family will love, and the view from the top is worth the work!
Looking for a less breathless stroll the along the beach? Try a wander along the beautiful sand spit of Bob Straub State park on the South end of town
Love to fish? Pacific City delivers opportunities for ocean fishing and river fishing – and we love to visit the “trout-stuffed” Town Lake for an outing with the kiddos.
After a day of adventure, there is nothing like ending the day watching the sunset colors change over Haystack Rock – and for beer lovers, we suggest you grab a chair in the sand at the Pelican Pub.
