    We drove from cannon beach to florance and this was the most scenic spot we stopped. For best views, park at the interpretive center and walk to the lighthouse.

    Stopped here on a whim as we drove up the Oregon coast. Well worth your time. Tidal pools to explore, gorgeous scenery and great views of a variety of wildlife, from birds to seals.

    Be prepared if the weather is nice... the kelp flies are out of control.

    The flies. Omg. This place is freaking swarming. They won't leave you alone at all. I went back to the car after a few minutes because it was so overwhelming.

    Worth a short wait to climb to the top. Could also just spend hours on the views.

    Trivia: There used to be a lightkeeper's house on the grassy area bewteen the tower and parking lot. Be sure to also check out Yaquina Bay Light a few miles south of here if you have the time.

    You can often see gray whales offshore from here! Definitely worth more than $7.

    Def. Worth $7, but it could take a while to climb up the lighthouse. We waited over an hour... Lots of other things to check out though. Not to mention it's beautiful...
