Vacation in Tillamook Oregon
WELCOME TO TILLAMOOK!
One of the most beautiful parts of Oregon. We highly recommend the 3 Capes Scenic Route over Cape Meares, Cape Lookout and Cape Kiwanda which offers some of the most spectacular views of Tillamook County's magnificent Coastline. The lighthouse and the old Indian burial tree, known as the Octopus Tree, at Cape Meares State Park offer the visitor an interesting look into the past.
Just south of town at what is now the Port of Tillamook Bay Industrial Park, is the largest wooden structure in the world, the Blimp Hangar Museum. In 1942 two gigantic buildings were built to house the blimps which patrolled the Pacific Coast during World War H. One of these Blimp Hangars remains and now houses the Tillamook Naval Air Station Museum.
If you head just five miles north of Tillamook, you can visit the Pacific Seafood facility where their oyster shucking techniques have not changed for over 200 years. While you're there you can enjoy a lunch of the area's freshest seafood; like a bowl of fresh clam chowder, or oyster stew perhaps?
The Tillamook County Pioneer Museum on Second Street in Tillamook is comparable to the finest museums in the country along with the Latimer Quilt & Textile Center. And a trip to Tillamook is not complete without a visit to the Tillamook County Cheese Factory and the Blue Heron French Cheese Factory.
Enjoy the 75 miles of beaches while visiting Tillamook County.
The Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce operates a Visitor Information Center located at 3705 Hwy. 101 North in Tillamook. Make this your first stop when you're in town and they'll be happy to help you plan your northern Oregon coast vacation.
