I stayed in Gearhart Oregon for the first time a few nights ago. What a charming little town! It is near Seaside Oregon which is not the same place it was when I was a kid and we visited...it is much more quiet in Gearhart. The tiny town has everything you might need including the best espresso I have had in months at the Pacific Way Bakery. I stayed at the Gearhart ocean inn and it was lovely.
