I'm planning a family weekend in Cannon Beach for my Dad's 60th in early January.
He likes "do nothing" vacations, meaning he just wants to spend time together as a family without being drug along(usually by me) to museums and events and... all that fun stuff :)
Are there any locals or Cannon Beach regulars who can recommend one or two low-key and winter-friendly afternoon outings in the area? Also, are bonfires allowed on the beach?
Restaurant suggestions for birthday dinner?
My sister in law already booked the location, it's an Airbnb called The Guesthouse. Located at Hemlock & Harrison near the Wayfarer.
There seems to be a row of shops within walking distance, but its hard to tell from google if that would be a nice stroll in January or where the best part of town would be for an afternoon walk, weather permitting (fingers crossed!).
My proposed itinerary:
>>Thursday 4pm check-in
Unpack/ dinner prep
Walk 1 block to nearest beach access point
Dinner at the house
Game night with kids/grandkids
Fruit& Pastries breakfast (I'll go out early to get pastries from a local shop- recommendations?)
Relaxing morning/ coffee & tea
**Outing to nearby attraction (walking distance?)
**Dinner at nearby restaurant (walking distance?)
Bonfire/ Game night
Morning beach walk
Brunch at the house
Any advice or tips would be appreciated, thank you!
