In 1909, developers established Rockaway Beach, OR as a seaside resort in the tradition of its Long Island namesake. The small community connected by train to Portland and served as a popular getaway for "city folk" for well over a hundred years. Today, it's a somewhat quieter but equally desirable destination on the Oregon Coast for those seeking a quintessential beach town experience.
