The northern coast city of Tillamook is only 74 miles west of Portland, Oregon. The city is located on Tillamook Bay, and it’s surrounded by vast forests of timber and dairy farms.
The Tillamook Cheese’s Visitor Center and the Blue Heron Cheese and Wine Company are the city’s biggest tourist draw. Visitors from all over the world flock to both locations to sample tasty cheeses, ice cream, gourmet foods and local Oregon grown wine varieties.

The Tillamook Cheese Factory is made up of over a hundred dairy farm families. Many of these families are directly related to the original pioneers who created the Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA). Tillamook Cheese is sold in stores all over the United States.
The back bone of Tillamook’s economy has historically been timber, dairy and commercial fishing. However, tourism has become a staple of its economy. Because of this, Tillamook is experiencing urban renewal. Downtown buildings are becoming revitalized and refurbished.
