Travelers of all ages can enjoy the beautiful Oregon Coast playground, so shake off those adult concerns, pack up the kids and discover these fun-filled Oregon Coast attractions.

Wild and windswept, charming and charismatic, educational and outdoorsy, the Oregon coast offers something for every family. Where adults seek natural beauty, kids will find outdoor wonderlands ripe for exploration, from wide beachside dunes to tucked-away rainforests. Where parents find inviting attractions, their children will discover hands-on learning and play in beachside arcades, wildlife parks, tidepools and sea caves. Add a few stops in charming Oregon beach towns and families have the perfect coastal vacation in the works. - By Amy Whitley
