What's it like to live on the Oregon coast?

I've been thinking about moving to the Oregon coast, close to the ocean, along the 101 corridor: Newport, Lincoln City, Tillamook, all that jazz. But right now these towns are just names to me. What's the skinny on that area?

I don't want to lead anyone's answer too much—any information is welcome—but the questions going through my head are like: Are the beaches any good? Are the people friendly and tolerant of somewhat weird outsiders? Is it all pickup trucks and shotgun racks? What specific character do these towns have that makes them different from each other? Are there any jobs to speak of at frakking all? You know, what's it like to live there?
