Pacific City

Centuries ago, there was a large Indian village at the mouth of the Big Nestucca River as evidenced by the numerous Indian mounds and artifacts found in that area. Chief Kiwanda was their most famous leader, hence the name Cape Kiwanda.

Professional and sport fishermen brave the surf to the open sea to fish for cod and bottom fish. Pacific City is famous for these dory boats, celebrated every year with the Dory Days festivities during the third weekend in July. Pacific City also has two rivers for fishing. You’ll find several good restaurants, gift shops, and galleries.
