Cannon Beach Downtown Quaint Streets
Virtual Tour of Cannon Beach, Oregon Coast
This charmer of a town is home to many artists on the coast, with the singing sisters of Heart and sci-fi writer Ursula K. LeGuinn having cabins here as well. This artiness shows, partially in the city council’s rule that most buildings be dressed up in cedar shingles, giving the whole town a sense of the rustic yet refined.
This artiness also shows in the abundance of quaint businesses around town, from whimsical shops selling kites, clothes and gifts, to its galleries, fine cuisine in a variety of price ranges and the many flower pots hanging everywhere. Some of the restaurants and bars even have outdoor seating – a daring, if not very urban-thinking move on the coast.
