DurationApproximately 4 hours
Departing the pier by motor coach, travel to Seaside, considered the Northwest’s most popular ocean resort for over a century. It is a destination paradise for a wide variety of reasons: its spectacular ocean views, public beaches, outdoor activities, excellent shopping and unforgettable dining. The wide and sandy beach is available for all kinds of activities, from low-rider beach bikes, wave watching, to sand castle building and kite flying. Those young at heart will enjoy such amusements at the carousel and arcades.
Rejoining your motor coach, continue on to Cannon Beach. In 1846, the U.S. Navy schooner Shark was wrecked while trying to leave the Columbia River. A large piece of the schooner’s deck with a cannon and capstan attached washed up on the beach, prompting the town’s name. Downtown Cannon Beach is charming, with wood or stone benches here and there for people to sit and relax. You can admire paintings and photographs of Haystack Rock as well as the wildlife and the beautiful views. The arts are emphasized in Cannon Beach, and some of the best crafts, shopping and galleries on the coast are located here. The city is ideal for strolling, and visitors take advantage of this to visit the quaint bookstores, shops and bistros.
After your delightful independent visit, rejoin your motor coach and return to your Crystal ship.
