Oceanside vacation rentals are just that! There's no place in this tiny town that the beach isn't front and center. Equally delightful are the nearby areas of Netarts and Cape Meares. Located in Tillamook county about 10 miles from the city of Tillamook, these beach houses make a convenient getaway from Portland. There are giant rocks off-shore that are home to sea lions and sea birds. There are tidal pools everywhere with seals, herons and pelicans.
If you like cheese, then a visit to the world famous home of Tillamook Cheese is a must. Over one million folks tour Visitor's Center each year to watch the cheesemakers and packagers at work and to enjoy the rich, delicious Tillamook goodies.
Are you interested in restored WWII aircraft? Then a visit to the Tillamook Air Museum may be what you are looking for.
Nearby is Three Arch Rocks National Wildlife Refuge, established in 1907. It's the site of our largest sea bird colonies, as well as a colony of sea lions.
Nearby is Cape Meares and Cape Lookout State Park. Cape Lookout is located on a sand spit between Netarts Bay and the ocean, giving you a terrific view of the ocean with easy access to the beach. Beachcombing is popular here, and the park is reputedly a good place to find glass floats.
Recreational opportunities in Oceanside include hang gliding, paragliding, crabbing and clamming on Netarts Bay, as well as excellent hiking and biking. Are you a fisherman? Try river fishing or take a guided fishing trip. Or you may just enjoy a walk along the beach. Enjoy the restaurants and shopping.
