My Favorite Little Beach Town: Manzanita

May 12, 2010

There isn’t anything better than spending a beautiful weekend exploring the wonderful city of Portland. Except maybe taking a break from the hustle and bustle of the city for some R&R just an hour and a half away in the cutest Oregon coast spot: Manzanita.

Ever since I first experienced this tiny town two years ago, I’ve jumped at any chance to go back. And this weekend… Manzanita, here I come! Why such love? Here are my top 5 reasons:

5. A walk along the beautiful beach with 10, not 1000 other people

4. Lunch of an amazingly tasty giant burrito with your choice of more than 200 hot sauces

3. A warm welcome from the family of yellow labs that roam the sidewalks

2. An early run on the sand followed by coffee and a muffin at the  little shop on main street

1. Feeling 1,000 miles away from anything stressful, loud, taxing or otherwise part of the usual week

Don’t believe me? Take a tour in pictures below. See you on the beach!
