Nestled on Oregon’s northern coastline, Manzanita is the perfect place to savor the quiet whisper of the incoming tide. Hide away in this tiny town where locals make will make you feel like family with warm hospitality and tempt you to miss your flight home with enchanting Manzanita hotels right on the waterfront. While the name may mean “little apple” in Spanish, Manzanita invites you to take a big bite in local pastry shops surrounded by a crisp ocean mist. Tucked between Oswald West State Park and Nehalem Bay State Park, your next destination has a panoramic view of Mother Nature’s finest handiwork.
Since 1912, Manzanita has wooed weary travelers to 7 miles of secluded coastline. If you’ve ever craved a moment to contemplate the rhythm of the universe, snuggle up on a beachfront blanket as you sample Oregon’s coffee culture one espresso shot at a time. Hermann Broch was onto something when he said, “Those who live by the sea can hardly form a single thought of which the sea would not be part.” Let your daydreams catch a ride on a passing wave at Manzanita Beach, and when those thoughts linger on the nearby vineyards and local bistros, wander along Laneda Avenue for wining and dining. If cheese is what you seek, take your Manzanita car rental for a 25-mile drive to Tillamook. More things in life should bring us to cheese. For a true Oregon Coast experience, follow your tour of the Tillamook Cheese Factory with wine tasting in Nehalem Bay. You’ll be sure to sleep sweetly in one of the best hotels in Manzanita after tasting the tannins of delicious chardonnay and pinot noir.
