20 Best Beaches In The US You *Need* To Vacation On
Cannon Beach, Oregon
National Geographic called Cannon Beach one of the most beautiful places in the world in 2013 for its waterfalls, marine life, and monumental Haystack Rock, but there’s plenty to do if Mother Nature’s splendor isn’t really your thing. The city has art galleries, eateries, and boutiques alongside a small-batch distillery, a Stormy Weather Arts Festival to celebrate seasonal gloom, and summer surfing at Ecola State Park. Cannon Beach is also one of Oregan’s most dog-friendly beach towns, which is ideal considering Portland has the largest number of dogs per capita in the country.
