A four hour drive from Seattle, an hour and a half from Portland, and a quick jaunt from Washington's Long Beach Peninsula, Cannon Beach is a must. The site of the iconic Haystack Rock, as well as the opening sequence of the semi-cult classic, Goonies, Cannon Beach has much to recommend it: A charming downtown, a host of lovely inns and hotels, and ample hiking and recreation. And as the photos here show, Cannon Beach is also a photographer's paradise. To learn more about Cannon Beach, go to the excellent Chamber of Commerce Visitors' website.
