Fourth of July Guide to Oregon Coast, 2012

Published 06/02/2011

(Oregon Coast) – The upper half of the Oregon coast is getting ready to go nuts. Independence Day doesn’t necessarily mean the Fourth of July here, either. A few towns serve up their fireworks or celebrations on the second or third of July, while others feature numerous fun activities that surround that day or coincide with it. This allows you to create a small festival of firework fun if you plan your trip right (above: Rockaway Beach).
