The state's beaches – all 363 miles of them -- are designated as public lands.

Where else? In Oregon.

From Oregon's best at Cannon Beach at Ecola State Park to the beaches of Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor (often called Oregon's best kept secret), you can follow the scenic lighthouses along historic Highway 101 on a complete tour of the Oregon coast.

You can also plan on sunny days in Oregon for Oregon whale watching, digging for clams, or camping out on a sandy Oregon beach.

In Oregon it's all cool.

Have fun!

A couple admire the view at Cannon Beach near Haystock Rock, 90 minutes from Portland.

DID YOU KNOW? Oregon beach fun facts:

• Two of the most visited beaches along the Oregon coast are Seaside and Cannon Beach, a 90-minute drive from Portland.

• It's where a large number of local sea lions and shore birds call home -- at the nation's largest sea cave, Sea Lion Caves near Florence on US Hwy. 101.

• Stretching about 40 miles between Florence and North Bend is Oregon Dunes Recreational Area, the largest expanse of coastal dunes in North America.

• 18,000 gray whales migrate twice a year along the Oregon coast from mid-December through January -- and again in late March to early June (conveniently scheduled during spring break.)
