Rockaway Beach is a wonderful family friendly destination on the Northern Oregon Coast. It offers plenty of wide open sandy stretches of beach, some fun shops and restaurants, and is within easy driving distance of several other great attractions. When you go there though, you need a great place to stay. We had a lot of fun when we went there and used the Silver Sands Oceanfront Resort as our headquarters for a visit to that part of the Oregon Coast.
Rockaway Beach is a fun little community and staying at the Silver Sands allowed us to be pretty much within walking distance of everywhere we wanted to go. You can set out on foot from there and easily find some refreshing ice cream, some great burgers, and even some great tasting bakery items. There are also some fun shops to explore too. All of it is just a short stroll away from the Silver Sands.
The Silver Sands Resort sits right on the coast. Out your window is going to be one of the nicest views of the Oregon Coast you can find. We had a ground floor room which meant just a few steps outside was a path that took us down to the soft sand and the Pacific Ocean. From there, you can choose to just spread out your towel or walk to the right or left and explore miles of coastline. The Silver Sands Resort has been there awhile, has been lovingly updated, and can give you that classic beachfront vacation experience.
There’s more than just a great location to the Silver Sands though. The kids had a great time there making use of the swimming pool, hot tub, and of course the free wireless internet. It was actually kind of nice to come back early and spend a little down time right there at the hotel.
Rockaway Beach is one of the best spots to visit on the Oregon Coast and spending the night at the Silver Sands Resort is a great way to make any visit there even better.
