Located west of Tillamook, right along the Pacific Ocean, is Oregon’s shortest lighthouse. The Cape Meares Lighthouse may be small, but is a lovely place to visit. The short walk to the lighthouse is gorgeous with views of rugged cliffs and ocean waves. There is no charge to climb to the top of the lighthouse and we learn something new each time we visit.
