Whale Watching Go Guide
Inn love: Check into the updated Inn at Cannon Beach, from $169; atcannonbeach.com.
For the best meal, hit Lincoln City’s BlackFish Café. Fresh and local offerings range from seafood-studded cioppino to salmon to duck breast.
Pig ’N Pancake (Astoria, Cannon Beach, Seaside) is an Oregon coast classic. Try the homemade banana pancakes with orange-pineapple syrup. Yum!
Pelican Pub & Brewery (Pacific City), a maritime public house, is a rare treat: an oceanfront brewery. Award-winning ales, pan-fried mahi mahi, and beer-battered fries will fuel you up for more whale watching. Or stay awhile and enjoy the wide-open views of Haystack Rock and Cape Kiwanda.
