Fourth of July, Independence Day Fun on the Oregon Coast; Travel Tips
(Oregon Coast) – The upper half of the Oregon coast does indeed know how to whoop it up. Some, like Seaside, Astoria, Newport or Lincoln City, draw tens of thousands. Other smaller towns like Cannon Beach or Waldport draw several thousand and are a little less sardine-like (above: Rockaway Beach's Fourth).
Some aren't even held on July 4, allowing you the luxury of extending your firework festivities. Waldport holds theirs on July 3, and this year Pacific City gets it done early with their fireworks on June 30.
The lodgings fill up – often having been entirely booked up months in advance. You'll find pretty much nothing available even now, although checking this Oregon Coast Lodging availability update may yield you still a few openings.
Because of environmental concerns, Depoe Bay has been forced to cancel their usual fireworks display that normally happens on July 3. Though some sort of celebration is still in the works and something will be announced soon.
