These towns offer a wide variety of fun and interesting things to do: shops, restaurants (shore side and otherwise), antique stores, galleries, wineries, and boat docks.

THOSE LUCKY FOLKS who have discovered the magic of this world of Nehalem Bay will tell you it's the heart and hub of three small communities which have popped up in this lush land in the last one hundred years. These villages or small towns are Wheeler on the BAY, Nehalem on the RIVER and Manzanita on the OCEAN. North on the ocean shore is a residential community, Neahkahnie, keeper of the famous legends of pirates, shipwrecks and buried treasure. Interspersed among these friendly places are farms, dairy lands, great milk herds, timberland, clean rivers and streams, tidelands, mountain ranges, ancient rain forests, water springs, state parks for camping and seven miles of curving beach along the Pacific ocean. All within 90 minutes drive from Portland, Oregon. And just minutes from your cozy cottage at Nehalem Point.
