Where's some cool places to go on the coast? This is really just a chance to go and chill and unwind in July (I'm not a partying type of dude). Any Oregonians want to tell me where the place to be is?

Have to plan ahead to get the good spots. I recommend Cannon beach or even a beach house at Seaside. If you would consider spots in Washington I recommend Orcas Island (San Jauns) or Deception Pass.

Lot of places are booked in advance so I'd start looking pretty soon.

Gonna start probably next week, when everyone who I plan on going with has their financials set and can start setting aside money.

You may find Cannon Beach a bit on the pricey side, I do. Lincoln City has a nice casino if you're into that and it's often a bit warmer down there as well. Beach isn't quite as picturesque as further north though. Seaside has fireworks on the beach on the 4th IIRC though don't hold me to that.

Love Cannon Beach. Seaside is good too. Would recommend Cannon Beach.

We spend every 4th in Lincoln City. Cannon Beach is cool. IMO, Seaside sucks, unless you like the carnival midway atmosphere.
LC is only a stones throw from Depoe Bay and Newport also.

You could just stay in Roland's moms basement.

You guys could wear swimsuits and just broom the dust and pizza crust particles into a pile and pretend its sand.

And you could pretend the squishing sound of Roland's uncle/ dad's colostomy bag is the ocean waves.

Cannon Beach and Seaside (well all the ocean beaches really) will be a zoo that weekend. We stayed in Ocean Shores one time and the room rates the few days before the 4th were fairly reasonable then but from the 4th on through the weekend they jack them up big time. But I'm a tight-wad so they might seem fine to some.

You know... I never thought about the people that would be there, that would suck... I'm just trying a way to find a nice place too look at and relax.

Yes, that's true also. The whole coast will be a zoo. Seaside/Cannon Beach for sure. We stay just south of Lincoln City, so it's not too bad where we're at, but Cannon Beach, L. City proper, and Seaside will be jam packed with traffic and people. I really think the further south you go, the better luck you'll have. Between Lincoln City and Newport there are a lot of beaches, and a lot of them aren't that crowded even during the 4th.

Throw, my brotha, go on a website like VRBO or home away.com

Have everyone pitch in and get a big house or condo on the beach. Way better than most of the hotels on the coast

Oh and when it comes to who gets the master bedroom tell them you got the place from a friend of your dads and take it, or make them pay more for it.

I swear, I'm not trying to be a jerk here, but; have you never left the house on 4th of July weekend?! People are out everywhere, any place that could remotely be considered a vacation getaway or even one which provides entertainment will have a ton of people around it that weekend.

Ah. Well, any place with a beach (or even near one) will be packed that weekend, so plan or change your plans accordingly.

Manzanita is a cool little beach town, just south of Seaside.

Lincoln City is kind of touristy, but it's a cool little beach town. Some great crab shacks, if you're into delicious crab and smoked fish. The drive down and back on the Pacific Highway is a great one too. Part of the ambiance of the trip.

The thing that is cool about Seaside and Cannon Beach is that no one can drive on the beach like at Ocean shores. Give some people a little rope and all hell breaks loose.

If you are into Wine at all there is a cool little winery called Shallon in Astoria that is really entertaining though the wine is really nothing to write home about. And another in Nehalem Bay that is pretty cool also but again the wine was so so. We never fail to make a run to the Tillamook Cheese factory for ice cream and there is a cool flight museum there too. You can rent dune buggies and stuff further south as well. Just depends on what your into.

Ali'i Tower at Hilton Hawaiian Village is great for the 4th. The fireworks explode just outside your window and if you're up high enough (11th floor) you can reach out and touch them.

Oh, Oregon...never mind...
