The northwest part of the US is known for its natural beauty, and the Oregon town of Netarts is no exception. With easy access to beaches and natural wildlife, historical attractions, and friendly locals, this is the perfect location to relax and get away from it all. Pearl Street is home to beautiful houses displaying classic Victorian architecture, while Main Street is the primary commercial strip featuring the best restaurants and shopping in town.
Here are a few suggestions of things to do in Netarts:
-Cape Meares Lighthouse: This lighthouse is among the oldest in the state still in service.
-Pacific Coast Scenic Byway: It won't be possible to drive all of its 363 miles in a single day, but do consider spending an hour or two taking in this strip of highway's stunning scenery.
-Cape Meares Wildlife National Refuge: This refuge provides a habitat for federally threatened bird species and is home to 200 foot tall trees which tower over the Three Capes Scenic Route.
-The Octopus Tree: For a truly unique experience, head to Cape Meares State Park to see this old spruce tree that has branches growing like massive tentacles.
Netarts is known as a place where things close early, but the daytime events and festivals in and around the area provide ample opportunity to sample the best of the region from sunrise to sunset. Try some of Netart's world-class seafood at the Clam Chowder Feed in May, listen to live performances from the top blues musicians in the state at the Memorial Weekend Blues Festival in May, or sit on the beach and watch fireworks light up the sky during the Fourth of July celebrations.
A vacation rental is the preferred option for those staying in Netarts. Rent a beautiful villa with easy access to the beach and the opportunities for crabbing that it offers, or book a luxury condo near some of the popular shopping areas in town.
