DIRECTIONS*: About 40 miles south of Portland on I-5, take the Salem Expressway, Exit 260-A. In about 5 miles turn right on to Marion Street Bridge (Highway 22). Follow Highway 22 for 30 miles to a merge with westbound Highway 18. After 23 miles, merge with southbound Highway 101. Continue south on 101 for 23 miles, through Lincoln City. After Depoe Bay, the highway climbs over Otter Crest. About a mile after the bottom of the descent, turn left at the Beverly Beach State Park sign (milepost #134--green marker on right side of road).
From the south, 6 miles from the north end of Newport (Fred Meyer, Safeway) turn right at the Beverly Beach State Park turn off.
Immediately after turning off Highway 101, take a right up the hill on Beverly Drive. At 1/4 mile, as the road begins to top the hill, stay to the right on Avery Street, a narrow paved road by the first house on the right. Follow about a quarter mile, to the next to last house on the right—11429 NE Avery, Newport 97365.

* From the Puget Sound region, an alternative to dealing with Portland traffic is to take the Northern Oregon coastal route, with dairy farms and glimpses of the coastline south of Astoria. From Olympia, take Highways 101 and 8 toward Aberdeen. Before Aberdeen, at Montesano turn south on Highway #107, to join Highway 101, passing through Raymond and South Bend on the way to Astoria. It’s about 25 miles further. IF traffic through Portland is smooth, it adds about an hour to take this coastal route. Another thought: traveling south through Washington on I-5, if you catch a negative Portland traffic report, you can take exit #36, cross the Columbia at Longview and take Highway 30 to Astoria.
