Cannon Beach, OR
When discussing Pacific Northwest beach towns, Seaside, OR, is the name that typically tops the list. But it wouldn't be very Oregon of us to tell you about a place that’s totally mainstream. So instead we're going with Seaside’s cool little neighbor, Cannon Beach, which's chocked-full art galleries, seafood joints, and even a distillery. Its most famous attraction though is Haystack Rock -- aka that rock you saw in Goonies and the final scene of Point Break where Johnny Utah said "Vaya Con Dios" to Bodhi.
