Guiding Lights

Lighthouses are a rare commodity in America, dotting just the periphery of the continent and along the Great Lakes. But in Oregon there are still enough 19th-century lighthouses to count on two hands—almost.

Nine of these romantic structures grace Oregon’s coastline and most are still operating, now with halogen rather than kerosene lamps. They broadcast their beams from Cannon Beach to Port Orford, a stretch of about 250 miles.
A weekend outing allows ample time to visit four or five of them, while stopping at other attractions along the way.
