Hi!

I'm Whitney. Welcome to my little slice of the Internet, where I talk about life in Seattle and our travels beyond it. I have a handsome husbro I may have met outside of a bar, two crazy felines, and a fresh little human born last spring. Do you like reality TV, sampling all the products, and pickled veggies? Me, too! 

I'm so glad  you're here. 

Best Oregon Coastal Town: Pacific City

Best Oregon Coastal Town: Pacific City

I'm gonna make a bold claim and say that Pacific City is my favorite Oregon Beach town. I've been up and down the coast by now and what I loved most about PC/Cape Kiwanda is just how insanely CHILL it is. I've never really been the biggest fan of crowds (shocker!), and I tend to appreciate tourist spots that allow me the opportunity to find a celebratory t-shirt or three, but I don't need blocks of tourist shops, you know? 

PC has an epic Haystack Rock, lots of wildlife bouncing around, beautiful views, one t-shirt shop, and a really respectable burrito stand. I really don't need much more than that.

Plus, the Airbnbs there are reasonably priced and just steps from the beach. 

We've decided our mountain house will be in Mazama and our beach house will be in Pacific City. 

What are your favorite beach towns?
