The Oregon coast is a must for anyone visiting Oregon, and is gorgeous at any time of year. One of our favorite ways to see the coast is by rail with the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad, a non-profit museum organization that loves taking guests on stunning rail excursions. Whether you’d like a romantic dinner as you take in the scenery, or are looking for a tour featuring stunning fall foliage, this is the perfect way to explore Oregon’s coast.
