We loved stopping at Tillamook Creamery. The displays and views into the factory were very interesting. Gave us a whole new appreciation for what goes into making the cheese we like so much. The ice cream was very tasty, but beware that even on a weekday in the summer, the line can be about 1.5 hrs just for ice cream.
This was a little pricier than we anticipated, but was great to see the sea lions. We also saw three grey whales swimming outside the cave area and it was fun to see them come up for a breath.
Hands down the best display of redwoods you will find. We drove through the park on the unpaved roads that lead you between redwoods with an opening just big enough for your car to pass safely. We passed several clusters of trees that allow you to climb up for great pictures, as well as a few fallen trees to climb on for great pictures. We did not hike and never saw the river that others have noted, but the drive alone was phenomenal. There were also a few primitive bathrooms facilities along the dirt road.
Beautiful place for a summer hike. The ski lift was open when we visited, so we rode it up and hiked around in the meadows. The views from the ski lift and the ground hike were absolutely stunning.
This is terrible and hard to find. We never did find the trails after driving forever. They are not marked so hard to find.
Beautiful falls. Great pictures if you climb down to the bottom.
