Plan a Girls Trip to Cannon Beach

A few days spent on a Girls Trip to Tolovana Inn in Cannon Beach with your favorite females will leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed.

Cannon Beach businesses are making plans to host the annual Fall WOW-Women Only Weekend Festival providing extra incentives to enjoy Oregon’s favorite coastal getaway.

But you don’t have to wait.

That’s because Cannon Beach is an ideal destination to share with moms, sisters, cousins, and friends.  A little over an hour west of Portland, Cannon Beach charms year-round.  The town is filled with distinctive galleries and unique boutiques, brewpubs, and bistros.  Wide-open beaches are ideal for strolling.  And from an oceanfront room at Tolovana Inn, you’ll experience magical sunsets, lulled by the sound of rolling waves.

Here are four reasons to schedule a girls-only trip to Cannon Beach:

1. You’ll feel connected. As we get busier, finding time to spend with your friends can get tougher. Therefore, setting aside a few days at the beach allows you to get caught up with the people who nurture you.  You’ll have time to reflect on life changes and shared challenges.

2. You’ll relax. A weekend without responsibilities gives your brain a break. In other words, you can clear your mind, de-stress and come back refreshed. Researchers have proven that when women spend time together, notable increases in oxytocin and serotine occur, providing increased feelings of safety and relaxation.  About all, that’s good for your emotional health.

3. You’ll laugh out loud. Whether starting stories beginning “Remember when…?” or discussing your latest, favorite Netflix show, at some point your stomach will ache in a good way.  In other words, you are likely to laugh until it hurts.  That’s a way to feel better.

4. You’ll make new memories. Without worrying if your spouse or kids will be entertained, you can break out of your comfort zone.  For instance, you can explore new activities and experiences and sample new foods or drinks.

Indoor Learning:  Special Resources

The Cannon Beach Historical Society and Museum website provides great content to enlighten you about the area.   First, start with a fun, interactive online quiz that will test your knowledge of local lore.

Secondly, you can learn about the three cannons of Cannon Beach.  The first cannon, which inspired the name of the town, washed ashore in 1898.  The cannon was part of the armament of the USS Shark which sank in high seas.  Two more cannons, from the same schooner, were discovered on the coast in 2008.

Thirdly, check out old photos online of popular historical sites around town.   From Bill’s Tavern to the original Osburns’ Grocery sites, you’ll recognize many locations.  The old Warren Hotel site built by homesteaders in 1911 is where Tolovana Inn sits today.  After you’ve done some research, venture out to see some of the notable sites.

Optimum viewing of coastal tidepools is an hour before low tide.

Whale Watching in Cannon Beach, Oregon

Whale Watching in Cannon Beach happens twice a year, in winter and spring. 

In the winter, the mighty mammals pass along the shoreline, heading from Alaska waterways to the lagoons of Baja California where mamma whales fatten up and welcome their newborns. About 20,000 are expected to pass during the last week of December. The whales will swim back up the coast starting in the spring.

The Oregon State Parks’ Whale Watching Spoken Here® program places trained volunteers at sites along the coast including nearby Ecola State Park, during the week December 27-31.  With binoculars, you can also watch for whales from beachfront balconies at Tolovana Inn. Getting up to look out over the horizon is critical.

Whale watching tips

Whales are spotted when they rise to the surface and spout a plume of mist and vapor that can reach up to 15 feet in the air. Calm days are best for whale watching, as the spout can linger in the air for up to five seconds when there is little wind. Seas without white-capped waves make whale spotting easier. And, early daylight from a low angle that illuminates the lingering spout also helps. With your binoculars, keep an eye out for a spout. Once you have it spotted, just raise your binoculars to where it was and keep looking.  

Whales typically spout three to five times, about 15-30 seconds apart, before making a deep dive of up to six minutes long.

Once spotted, keep their direction of travel in mind. Then, you will have it down in no time.  

Tolovana Inn is a favorite destination for families at any time of year. Just a few easy steps to the sand,  roomy oceanfront suites feature cozy fireplaces and private balconies with amazing views. The indoor saltwater pool is always inviting, along with the sauna or spa.
