July Coast Summer Preview: Manzanita, Tillamook, Pacific City, Rockaway Beach
(Manzanita, Oregon) – It’s the middle of summer and Tillamook County knows how to party it up. Fourth of July events abound, bonfires on the beach are a regular thing in Rockaway, Garibaldi puts on its dancin’ shoes, Nehalem Bay Winery stirs up a bit of a storm, and other north Oregon coast towns like Wheeler, Manzanita and Pacific City run amok.
