From eclectic boutiques and galleries to gift shops and specialty stores, visitors will find a shopping paradise up and down the Oregon Coast.

Whether you are looking for a gift, a special treasure or simply to treat yourself, you will find independent, locally owned businesses in towns up and down the Oregon Coast and Long Beach Peninsula that fit the bill. Visitors traveling along highway 101 in Oregon will find specialty shops with a distinctive array of merchandise waiting for discovery in Astoria, Seaside, Cannon Beach, Lincoln City, Newport and Brookings. For those travelers crossing the Columbia River over to Washington's Long Beach Peninsula, a stop at the Port of Ilwaco offers a few quaint shops and galleries dockside.

Here are some of our favorite shopping finds and the latest news to get you started on your shopping excursion.
