Visiting Oregon Coast

There’s no better spring or summer getaway than Oregon's Coast. This picturesque strip of the northwest is home to cozy seaside towns – one of which actually named Seaside – plus unforgettable state parks and beaches. Explore western Oregon with a scenic motorcycle ride along the coast, or catch some whale watching at Harris Beach State Park near Brookings. Check out the historic Seaside Aquarium in, you guessed it, Seaside, and don’t forget great farmers markets, food and folks in coastal Oregon towns like Lincoln City, Florence, and Bandon. Plenty of opportunity for outdoor recreation, family picnics, and nature photography await, so pack up and make your way to the Oregon coast this spring or summer.

The cozy town of Seaside – set in northwestern Oregon just south of Astoria – is a historic coastal city with plenty to do in spring and summer. Check out the Seaside Art Walk on the first Saturday of the month, or visit the Seaside Aquarium – open daily for your chance to feed the seals or pick up a starfish from the Touch Tank. Established in 1937, the Seaside Aquarium is the perfect day activity for those traveling with children, or an ideal date for a romantic getaway – as it's a short, coastal walk from the Best Western hotel in Seaside.

Lincoln City – found south of Seaside past the Tillamook State Forest along the Oregon Coast Highway – is a small, but fun city incorporating Devil’s Lake. For some inner-city activity, head to the Lincoln City Cultural Center in the historic DeLake School building – a two-minute walk from a Best Western hotel in Lincoln City. The Lincoln City Cultural Center offers spring events like magic camps and workshops, monthly dance nights, and the show “It’s No Illusion: Lincoln City is Magic at Spring Break”, in late March. View local art in the PJ Chessman and the Artist's White Room – showcasing exhibitions like “Art Bras (Hats and Shoes, Too)” throughout May – or take some Lincoln City artwork home with you from the LCCC Gift Shop.

Further south along the Oregon Coast Highway – also known as the US-101 – you’ll find the city of Florence within the Siuslaw National Forest. For a little outdoor action, head to the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, or take the short drive the Grand Marshal Sea Lion Caves – a must-see for those traveling with kids.

For a local festivity, head into Florence from May 18th through the 20th for the 2012 Rhododendron Festival – the 2012 theme being Nothing Short of Wild to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Seal Lion Caves. Commemorating its 105th anniversary, the Rhododendron Festival features everything from car shows and arts and craft fairs, to parades, carnivals and, of course, flower shows. See who’s crowned Queen Rhododendra, let the kids loose in the parade, and enjoy the rest of your time on the Oregon coast.
