One of the best things about living in Portland is that it's only around a 2 hour drive to some of the best beaches on the coast. We have been to many of them up and down Oregon and have settled on these ones as our favorites. Honesty there isn't really a bad beach anywhere, these are the ones we just find ourselves going to again and again. They each have their charm, their own unique looks and are all paw approved by our pack. Granted they are a dripping, sandy mess afterwards but they have the time of their lives.
