Ocean Shores? Cannon Beach? Where do you like to wade in the surf and build your sandcastles?

When you need some beach time, and you need it now, where do you aim the steering wheel? Are you an old-school loyalist to Ocean Shores, where Pat Boone once hosted golf tournaments? Or the Long Beach Peninsula, home to the world’s largest frying pan (and razor clams to go in it)?

Has the polished and planned community of Seabrook won you over? Or is Oregon’s Cannon Beach, and the walk to Haystack Rock, worth the extra miles?

Pick your favorite and then add a comment to tell the world why.
