BeachConnection.net (Oregon Coast Beach Connection) just released its "Oregon Coast Best of Awards for 2009."
You'll have to go read the full article yourself (Oregon Coast Best of Awards, 2009), but in it you'll find a few tidbits you've undoubtedly not even thought about. There are well known icons, such as Blackfish Cafe in Lincoln City, Morris' Fireside in Cannon Beach, Mr. P's in Lincoln City and Inn at Cannon Beach. But the more secretive stuff includes a stunning restaurant inside a castle near Cannon Beach, a beautifully esoteric BnB near Newport, and the wild, weird nature stuff you can see from the Landmark Restaurant and Lounge in Yachats. And what about that really cool culinary arts center in Lincoln City? Or who totally tranformed a sizable chunk of Garibaldi this year?
There's also best coffee/espresso shop on the coast, weirdest nature development of the year, coolest musical moment, and the best bar, bartender and new restaurant categories as well.
See you on the beach, kids!!! Oregon Coast Beach Connection, that is.
Ah, the beachy fun never ends.
