Overall score for buses from Portland to Cannon Beach

(Based on 27 ratings and reviews)




April 13, 2024- Couples trip

Amtrak Thruway

Pros: Comfortable seats, quiet, clean. Cons: Timing (one way one a return trip only was around 30 minutes late); spaciousness of seats (also taller headrests for tall passengers). Tips: Strongly recommended for those in Portland without a car. Cannon Beach is a hikers paradise (as well as a photographers) along the beach both north and south.



February 22, 2024- Solo travel

Amtrak Thruway

Pros: Excellent drivers. Let us know about the driver switch process ahead of time so no confusion. Cons: All good. Tips: Make sure to pack for weather as it changes quickly around Portland and Cannon Beach. Also I traveled in February and spent the whole day there. Amazing but I had to wait for 6:30 bus and it did get chilly out. Most places there were closed unless you were having dinner. So just be prepared.



November 9, 2023- Visiting family

Amtrak Thruway

Pros: Easy trip, could relax and let someone else drive. Cons: Need to give better visibility to the Amtrak buses. It can be difficult to find information.

Portland is the largest city in Oregon and accordingly one of the state's best vacation destinations. Also known as the City of Roses, this city along the Willamette River wows visitors with its diverse street food, quirky counterculture, and sprawling bookstores such as the world-famous Powell's Books.

Portland is the 5th best city in the United States for outdoor activities, thanks in part to open-air grounds like the expansive Forest Park. Gardens are also excellent outdoor date locales for couples on a romantic getaway: stop and smell the roses at either the International Rose Test Garden or the Portland Japanese Garden.

Once you've gotten hungry from a long day wandering outside, nearly every block downtown has a plethora of food trucks waiting to tickle your taste buds. Or, kick back at one of the many breweries in the #3 best city for craft beer in the United States. Unique locations like McMenamin's brewpubs in renovated cinemas or historic hotels do their part to "keep Portland weird."

As the biggest city in Oregon, Portland is a hub for travel throughout the Pacific Northwest. Amtrak train service and various bus services operate primarily out of Union Station, conveniently-located downtown, and nearby Portland International Airport makes it easy to travel to Portland from near and far.
