Yachats

Yachats

Yachats, Oregon (pronounced YAH-hahts) is called the “Gem of the Oregon Coast” for its ideal location along the Central Oregon Coast. Nestled below the towering Cape Perpetua, Yachats offers visitors both rocky and sand beaches to explore. The rocky shores create tidepools, where visitors find an abundance of sea creatures from sea stars, see urchins, fish, crabs and more. Just off shore, whales, porpoise, and seals swim, viewable from the shoreline.

According to Oregon Geographic Names, the name comes from the Siletz language, and means "at the foot of the mountain." Archaeological studies have shown that the Yachats area has been inhabited for at least 1,500 years.

The Little Log Church and Museum, built in 1926, originally served as an Evangelical Church and later as a Presbyterian Church. Today it is owned and managed by the City of Yachats and houses a large collection of local historical artifacts. It is also a popular venue for weddings, memorials, concerts, and fine arts exhibits. Each Valentine's Day, a wedding vow renewal ceremony, open to any couple, is held there.

The North Fork of the Yachats Bridge is a covered bridge located in the Yachats River Valley, about nine miles (14.5 km) east of Yachats. It was completed, at a cost of $1,500, in 1938 and was the last bridge of veteran bridge builder Otis Hamer. It features the Queen-post truss style found in few covered bridges today and has ribbon openings under the roof to provide light to the bridge's center. Its span is 42 feet (13 m) long, making it one of the shortest covered bridges in the Pacific Northwest.

Yachats is on many "Top 10 Lists" including; Budget Travel magazine's "Ten Coolest Small Towns of the U.S.A., and VirtualTourist.com.'s top 10 U.S. vacation destinations.

Heceta Head Named One of Top Ten Lighhouse Hotels by Shermans Travel
Yachats

By ShermansTravel Editorial Staff for MSNBC

Guiding ships into port was just the beginning for these landmark lighthouse hotels. In their current incarnation as unusual – and in some cases quite plush – hotel rooms, they're helping travelers steer clear of a rough night's sleep.

Our top 10 lighthouse hotels span perilous harbors across the U.S. (did you know there are approximately 700 lighthouses in the U.S. alone?), the UK, Europe, South America, and New Zealand.

While modern technology (radar and GPS) has made their original job less essential, their second shift as a storied keep means visitors can learn firsthand how they work (most on our list are still operational, thanks to automated systems) and about their stormy pasts (some have been working the fog for over a century).

Climb the narrow spiral stair, watch the light beam across the sea, and spend the night in an iconic tower – then and always the universal symbol for safe harbor.

Yachats

AmandaLast year, when the 3 1/4-mile path known as Amanda's Trail was dedicated – no less than 35 years after efforts began – it seemed that would finally be that.

The goal was met, a Native American woman's tragic story recognized, and two cultures brought closer.

But that's not the way it worked out.
