The Oregon Coast is easily one of the most scenic places on Earth. By Oregon law, all ocean-front proptery in the state is public land.
Within minutes from Tarry by the Sea, there are innumerable scenic, historical (and shopping!) attractions for you to explore. Click on the pictures below for more specific information.
Of course, there's historic Astoria—a world-class seaport just a few miles to the north, named for John Jacob Astor. Rich with restaurants, fresh seafood, galleries, shops and many attractions, Astoria is easily one of the most valuable jewels of Oregon's Pacific Coast. Here you can watch ocean-going vessels as they make the transition from ocean to river on their way to—and from—the major Pacific seaport of Portland.
At the time of his death, John Jacob Astor was the most wealthy man in America, and the town that now bears his name is rich with history and wonderful attractions.
Of course, just a few minutes south of Tarry lies Seaside. This will be your go-to place, your nearby home at the beach. Seaside is a wonderful city full of shops, restaurants, arcades and beautiful beaches. If you stay at Tarry, you won't want to miss this close-by, beautiful town.
