We ran across this factory and jerky outlet on a road trip. Since we love jerky, it was a no-brainer. They had any kind of jerky and jerky items that you could even imagine along with samples. We got two of the 2 ft sticks (original and pepperoni) and steak cuts (teriyaki and old fashioned). All very yummy. Another highlight of a great trip.

First of all...someone posted that the trip to/from Garibaldi/Rockaway was an hour and a half. Not so. It's actually about a half an hour. Secondly, someone mentioned that the train needs renovation. No! It is very historic and old...just perfect for a vintage ride.
The engine is fabulous! On the way to Rockaway Beach we crossed many roads at which the train is required to whistle, and it was awesome every time! That, along with the clanging of the bells at some crossings was great! The train also has a caboose that houses the ticket area and small gift shop. Then there is an enclosed car, an outside car with a roof, and a completely open car. I rode in the outside car with the roof. It was a bit windy that day, but worth it to be outside.
We had a half hour stop in Rockaway Beach before heading back. Honestly, on a Sunday morning in September there wasn't much to do on the break. It looked like maybe during the busy season there are food trucks around, but not this day.
The train runs between Highway 101 and the bay. It does not run along the ocean coast or along any bluffs or anything. It's still a nice ride, but if you are looking for dramatic scenery you won't find it here. It also runs through a lot of people's backyards. It was fun when people waved from their fishing spots or houses or the road.
Overall, it was a fun little trip, but don't expect too much out of it. Also, the seats were a little hard, so if that will bother you then you might bring a pillow or jacket to sit on.

Every few years we stay here for a couple of days at a time to do some clamming & enjoy its tranquility. One review states "don't bring the kids or expect any seaside entertainment." I cannot disagree more since its a phenomenal place for a family vacation! Both my kids & grandkids have enjoyed staying here. The only thing one needs to do is to plan around the minus tides. If you stay at a place such as the Terimore, you can have access to a kitchen & make your own fresh clam chowder. For variety there are many sights within a few miles such as Tillamook (cheese factory), Cape Meares, the beach at Oceanside (if you want some waves) & Cape Lookout.

We stopped at the beach to have dinner and to watch the sunset. The weather was not the best, cloudy and some wind, but it was still a great stop. The ocean and haystack rocks make for some nice photos. With the tide going out, the beach was very large and a fund place to play for a while.

A short walk to some spectacular scenery. The waves and the noise are intense. Exhilarating and refreshing. It must be even better on a clear day. You could spend a few hours here no trouble at all but the January storm had us back in the warmth of the car in an hour. Will be back here for sure, whatever the weather.

Had a great time. Didn't plan to buy anything, but I ended up getting two really neat necklaces at good prices. If you're willing to look close, there are inexpensive treasures amongst the clutter. The shopowner is a great person and her shop reflects that.

Coming as we do from a City with a vibrant fishing port and yachting area is was great to enjoy the Boat Basin in Garibaldi, together with the interesting retail outlets. This is a relaxing town to visit and we liked the giant letter "G" looking down from the hillside. Well worth a visit.

This place has free parking restrooms and the best part is this is a great quick access beach. Just lovely. This is the kind of beach that kids can play on all day.

Staff is fun in their safety directions. Seat belts for all. 6 yo and 2 yo couldn't pedal but cheered everyone on!. We had to help a family in front of us when they pedaled too fast down a hill and chain slipped off. We...MoreThanks for riding with us! Just to clarify, our turn around time usually takes 10 minutes or less, enough time to turn the carts around, stretch, and use the ports-potties. Happy rail riding!

Coastal park offering opportunities for whale watching.
Beautiful views, ocean, hikes just past the state park. We took the Cape Trail which lead out to the scenic point, moderate hike. Almost 5 miles round trip. Beautiful day, weather perfect, clear and sunny. The hike through the trees was so relaxing and cool. Definitely a great hike. Coming back is more uphill, ended up getting back sooner even though a little more challenging with more uphill (we love to hike but working so much we haven't been for a few years, even on our planned vacation trips with no hiking on most caribbean beaches) we stopped more on the way down with pictures and enjoying views and time together. If the weather is clear for views, a must for a great moderate hike.
