A few weeks before the wedding, my parents came into town and the four of us took a quick trip down to Cannon Beach, Oregon. This is our fourth time to the Cannon Beach area and it never gets old. The town is so beautiful, with white washed wood shackles and pops of color, it's like a storybook come to life!
The ocean side is always chilly, even in the heart of summer, but the cool breeze means that you can comfortably wear sweaters for a stroll down the beach while the pup plays fetch and chases birds. Did I mention it is an off-leash dog-friendly beach?! That may not be official but when you go you will see off-leash hounds frolicking everywhere!
A must-do while in the area is walking down the beach to Haystack Rock. These giant rock formations are a beautiful break in the horizon and covered in barnacles and sea anemones.
We booked the trip pretty late so we ended up having to stay 30 min south in Rockaway Beach but I am so glad we did, the Airbnb was right on the beach and had the most insane views! Plus Rockaway Beach was much quieter and had way fewer people than Cannon Beach.
We still went to Cannon Beach for food, I would highly recommend Crepe Neptune for breakfast and Harding Trading Company for the most amazing French food at dinner! Where are your favorite weekend trips? P.S. wedding photos will be on the blog next week!!
