This is an incredibly overblown, exaggerated description of a simple little beach town with a few cute shops. When people flock to Yachats based on this article, they sure will be disappointed that the weather is about 20 degrees below "tropical," that is on the days when the sun is actually out. As for the "interesting people," if gays, lesbians and self-described witches everywhere is your idea of high society, you'll fit right in. And there is no cultural life whatsoever. Newport and Waldport have much more to offer.

If you're looking for a village that departs from small town bigotry, has continual live music and events that appeal to the intellect, as well as incredible lodging and spa facilities, interesting shops and galleries, restaurants and wine bars that could compete in urban settings, and incredible scenery - then Yachats is an amazing find and fantastic retreat. Check out the Yachats Chamber's web site, if you want some confirmation of this. I'm a straight girl transplanted from the big city, and I don't know any witches, or I'd ask for anti-bigotry spell.
