Sunny days along the coast mean many visitors! Plan ahead for parking options, especially when visiting popular destinations, and check if you need a parking permit.

Consider carpooling or car-free transit options, such as buses, to reduce congestion and environmental impact. Two public bus lines running from Portland to Cannon Beach are Sunset Empire Transportation and Northwest Point.
