6 Rainy Day Coast Activities

By Tosha Reinmiller, November 29, 2018

For every type of rain we have here at the coast, there’s an equal number of rainy day activities to keep all the members of your group entertained. Working our way from Tillamook, north up to Cannon Beach, here’s just a few adventure ideas for when the sun is hiding!

1. The Tillamook Air Museum was opened in 1942 and is located in a former US Navy Blimp hanger, called “Hanger B”. The museum offers visitors a chance to observe beautiful vintage air crafts as well as vehicles that have been preserved either by tour or by your own leisure. It also hosts a kids corner. The hanger received notoriety around the globe for it’s title as the largest clear-span wooden structure in the world. It’s impressive size and unique architecture along the Nehalem Valley floor draws thousands of visitors every year.

2. Go Antiquing! Wheeler & Nehalem host a multitude of fun vintage shops to explore while strolling along the Nehalem River & Bay. There’s nothing like finding a rare treasure tucked away in an unassuming little town to bring back home. It’s a wonderful way to get to know the culture of the area as well. Check out Wheeler Station Antiques and the Vintage Unicorn in Nehalem!

3. Explore and enjoy The Nehalem Beehive. This beautiful local shop is 1 part retail and 1 part cozy cafe. Peruse well crafted gifts, lotions, art and wares on the retail side and then wander into the next room and you’ll find yourself surrounded by cozy reading nooks, table spaces and the ultimate relaxation zone. They offer Kombucha on tap, freshly made soups, wraps and more for lunch. During dryer weather, take a book outside and enjoy the courtyard or front porch.

4. Explore The Hoffman Center for Arts! Located in downtown Manzanita, this space offers a variety of workshops and classes with a focus on ceramics, writing, film, performance arts and more. Visit on a Thursday or Saturday to use the Open Ceramic Studio and immerse yourself!

5. Cannon Beach has always been famous for it’s abundance of art shops & galleries. Starting in “mid-town” we recommend checking out Found, a vintage & local art shop, then working your way north along Hemlock St into the downtown area. The Archimedes Gallery is one of our new favorites in town and you won’t want to miss out on the classic & timeless coastal vibes of the Jeffrey Hull Gallery.

6. Go for a hike in the rain! Wetter weather means less foot traffic on trails, take advantage of these days by throwing on a couple extra layers and exploring the wild Oregon coast. If you want to keep it on the mild side, head to Nehalem Bay State Park and walk or bike the paved trails that hug the water & woods. If you’re feeling adventurous, try Saddle Mountain. This hike isn’t for the faint of heart but the views & reward are well worth it. Plus, depending on the time of year, you might even find some snow!
