Recognized as one of the 100 Best Art Towns in America by John Villano
I came across several members and sponsors of the Cannon Beach Gallery Group. A top shelf collection of fine galleries and some of the ares best dining and lodging companies. Together they have several events planned this year for the ocean side village. I haven’t had a chance to visit all of the galleries but one in particular, Bronze Coast Gallery, blew me away. I am particularly interested in sculptures and the artists represented here are among the finest, Mark Lundeen, Gene Guibord, David Crawford, Matthew Gray Palmer to name just a few.

South of Cannon Beach about 13 miles is the Town of Manzanita, a quaint little seaside town that has a great pub with live music and a killer blue cheese bacon burger and sour cream French fries called the San Dune Pub.
The Sunset Surf Motel in Manzanita is right on the ocean with a wide range of room styles some including fireplaces at surprisingly low rates… Check them out
