Cannon Beach is an amazing little town with lots of unique features that make it a one-of-a-kind stop along the Oregon Coast. I recommend the Cannon Beach Spa, Ecola State Park and of course, Haystack Rock. Stop to see the bunnies on the North end of town while you are here. Please also consider listing Seaside, OR. Again another unique coastal town that is super family friendly with lots of fun activities.
(e.g. Disneyland or New York)
