Cities: Cannon Beach

In September 1846 the U.S. survey schooner Shark sank at the mouth of the Columbia River. Part of the wreckage, with three small cannons attached, floated southward and washed up within a month of the disaster near present-day Arch Cape. Finally, in 1922, local residents successfully petitioned for the post office to be called "Cannon Beach."

While many people head to Lincoln City to get their fix of the Oregon Coast, there is another place that is just as easy to enjoy, Tolovana Beach Wayside.
