Best Things Nearby:Beautiful glass "floats" are 'planted' all over 7 gorgeous miles of beach. It is great incentive to wander the beach on a blustery day. There is also a good-sized Factory Outlet Mall that is a fun outing for those so inclined. One of our favorite day trips was a magnificent drive north to the Tillamook Cheese Factory. We took a self-guided tour and had the opportunity to taste different cheeses as well. They have a small restaurant and a gift shop.In addition, they have an ice cream shop (of course, they make their own) that has all the traditional flavors and MANY really unusual flavors. Try a few!

Tillamook County is a very heterogeneous locale. As we began our drive, we ascended into the mountains covered with old-growth forestation. Then the road leveled off a bit and we were surrounded by what must be a low-lying plain during the summer months - it looked like a shallow lake populated by hundreds of birds. Soon we were in 'cow country'. Cattle could be seen on both sides of Hwy. 101 grazing lazily in beautiful pastures. We arrived in the Historic town of Tillamook close to noontime. There were many historic buildings and such but we were on a mission -- CHEESE! You see, we are definitely a family of cheese-lovers and the Tillamook County Creamery Association factory is just north of t...Read More
