The Oregon Coast Digital Center is located in the quiet community of Cape Meares, just outside Tillamook, Oregon and about 70 miles due west of Portland. The facility itself is within walking distance of the Pacific Ocean which makes it great for beachcombing.

Oregon Sights to See
Just minutes away from the Oregon Coast Digital Center you can find the Cape Meares Lighthouse. This is Oregon's shortest lighthouse and guided mariners along the Oregon coast from 1890 until 1963 when it was decommissioned. Lighthouse enthusiasts can climb the 25 steps to see the Fresenel lens or shop at the interpretive gift shop.
The Tillamook Cheese Factory is one of Oregon's most visited tourist attractions. Located about 10 miles from the Oregon Coast Digital Center, visitors get a first hand view of the cheese making process and even free cheese samples. Be aware that it is almost impossible to resist purchasing an ice cream cone.
This former World War II blimp hanger now houses the Tillamook Air Museum. It features one of the finest collections of privately owned WWII flying aircraft in the country. It is also listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest wooden clear-span structure in the world.
