Manzanita is home to the Big Wave Café as well as the northernmost city in the Nehalem Bay Area.
Nehalem is built along the river of the same name. Despite the fact that the highway runs through it, it still bears a remarkable resemblance to its turn-of-the-19th-century self, with its old-fashioned storefronts.
Together, the three villages, as many refer to them, compose a tight-knit, yet diverse community catering to everyone from golfers to organic farmers to visitors from the city to sports fishermen.
