Report: Yachats is a great place to vacation. We highly recommend staying at The Adobe hotel. The Oregon Coast Aquarium is nearby. Also tons of little roadside beach stops. Of these we recommend Strawberry Hill (a little way south of Yachats) where we got to see wild sea lions up close with adorable friendly faces. An awesome experience!
