The first stop has to be Ecola State Park. The views here are amazing, especially from Ecola Point. Sit here and listen to the waves and wind. This is a wonderful place to watch the sunrise. The sky will reveal all its colors to you as the sun comes up. Imagine sipping your morning coffee watching the colors and listening to the waves pounding into the rocks.
The drive to the town of Tillamook is breathtaking to say the least. Take your time and enjoy the coastal views and many viewpoints. The winding road through farmlands is also a lovely drive.
Once you hit Tillamook, head to the cheese factory. Get a taste!
Once out of town and until you get to Lincoln City, keep your eyes open. I've seen kites, surfers, windsurfers and hand gliders up and down this section of the Byway.
