Get to know Bay City

Auto DraftFamily Adventures

Looking for some good old-fashioned family fun while vacationing on the north Oregon Coast? Bay City is sure to embrace the kid in you. Kids will love Bay City’s skate park, and a visit to the Tillamook Country Smoker, home of the two-foot pepperoni stick.

Outdoor Explorers

 One of the best adventures on the Oregon Coast is railriding with Railriders Cycling. Climb on the rail bikes at Bay City and pedal over rivers and past farms for a two-hour round trip excursion. Then, head over to learn about area history while hiking the Kilchis Point Interpretive Trails. Rent a tiny home at Sheltered Nook or a yurt at Yurt on the Bay, or camp at Kilchis River County Park.Auto Draft

Restful Retreater

Golf your stress away at Alderbrook Golf Course, or collect your thoughts on a path at Kilchis Point. Either way, Bay City is the place to reconnect and find some much-needed rest.

Culinary Connoisseur

Don’t miss watching oystermen shucking oysters from the bay to your table. The Pacific Oyster Company has some of the freshest seafood and shellfish on the Oregon coast. Enjoy the self-guided tour, which includes interactive kiosks, viewing windows and videos.

Stop in for a homestyle meal and slice of pie at Downies Cafe.
