Manzanita - Nehalem - Wheeler

Manzanita, Nehalem, and Wheeler are strung together along Highway 101 surrounding Nehalem Bay, with only two miles between each town.

Manzanita, the largest of the three, has the Beach.

Nehalem, the oldest of the three, has the River. Wheeler, "the little town with the million dollar views", has the Bay.

Manzanita, Nehalem, and Wheeler offer a laid-back, undiscovered coastal destination where you can find a bit of everything that the Oregon Coast Has to offer.

For Manzanita, Nehalem, and Wheeler events, festivals, live entertainment and happenings go to our Oregon Coast Calendar...

 



Mystery rocks on the beach, a haunted hotel and the famous "Wheeler Moment": An Oregon Coast Ghost Story

"If you feel an earthquake ... DUCK, COVER AND HOLD," it warns, like Cold War instructions for a nuclear attack.

The brochure includes a map of "assembly areas" to run for after you get out of your defensive crouch. Run like hell up hill: "A tsunami may be coming in a few minutes." Have a nice weekend.

Darn! No e-mail.

All I could do was drive to Tillamook County, windshield washers blasting on high, hoping the storm passed by the time I arrived.

It did.
