We spent spring break at the beach - or at least a few days of it. Enough to enjoy a few breaks in the otherwise gray and damp weather.

We stayed in Seaside, but spent our time pretty evenly split between there and Cannon Beach, which is just a few miles down the road on the other side of Tillamook Head. The two towns are a study in contrasts, driven by geography and demographics (which are rarely independent). Seaside seems to be more your typical middle-class beach town, able to handle large crowds with big hotels and arcades and t-shirts. Cannon Beach is more about smaller hotels and rental houses and galleries. Our experience generally confirmed that Cannon Beach had foodier food options.

Our hotel (condos) was right on the beach at the south end of Seaside and had a great view of the waves and the surfers.
