Eater Portland: Oregon Coast Dining Map

20 06 2017

My latest map for Eater Portland tells you where to go for what on the Oregon Coast. From the intro –

“It wasn’t all that long ago that dining along the coast was an exercise in frustration, but that’s changed. Today, up and down the coastline, you’ll find old-school haunts with stiff drinks and world-class fish and chips, as well as progressive dishes plated by the hands of rising-star chefs. And within those culinary bookends, the goal is to find restaurants with character — and characters — for an experiential taste of Oregon. From Astoria to Bandon, here are some of the best places to eat on the Oregon coast: crab boils, dockside dining, fish wrapped in paper, candlelight against fine linens, and more.”

Tillamook Coast: Spring Chinook Fishing in the Tillamook Bay

14 03 2017

Spring is around the corner, and so is some prime fishing out on the coast. From the article:

“Salmon is one of the most popular fish worldwide. But in the Northwest, Salmon is king.

In fact, you’ll often hear Chinook referred to as king salmon. This is a fitting title for a trophy cherished most by fishermen, chefs, and consumers alike. And while the spring runs might be smaller than those of the more famous fall season, the Tillamook Bay is home to some excellent spring Chinook fishing in May and June.”

Tillamook Coast: The Oregon Coast Trail

10 12 2016

My latest for Visit Tillamook Coast is about Oregon’s entirely public coastline and the trail that explores it. From the article:

“Thanks in large part to governors Oswald West and Tom McCall, the Oregon Coast belongs to all of us. The sea stacks, beaches, meadows – it is all open to the public. The Oregon Coast Trail (OCT) was designed and developed to showcase the splendor of our beloved coastline. From where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean, down to the California border, the OCT explores the coast and more.” Click here to read the whole story.
