The Oregon coast is a beautiful and relaxing place to vacation. There are relaxing beaches, beautiful views, and other interesting sites to see. There are animals and birds like seagulls, sea lions, and of course several different types of fish. There are plenty of things to do too, like kite flying, fishing, boating, and more. Don’t forget the cool things to see like the shops, museums, art galleries, parks, and more.
One of the most popular cities to visit along the Oregon coast is Newport. There are free things to do, like visiting the art galleries and shops along the bayfront. You can also see sea lions and other birds while sitting on the docks. There is also the Hatfield Marine Science Center with interesting movies about whale sharks and other things. They also have starfish and other cool things that you can look at and touch. They even have a real octopus. Things that cost money but are still worth seeing are the Oregon Coast Aquarium, Ripley’s, and Wax Works. If you want fresh chocolates and caramel corn, be sure to visit the Newport Candy Shop.
There are other interesting cities to visit like Bandon, Lincoln City, Florence and more. Lincoln City is about an hour after Newport. There are many things that happen such as kite flying contests, sand castle contests, cooking competitions, and more. Be sure to visit the art galleries and the North Lincoln County Museum. Another great place to shop is Tanger Outlets. They have a lot of great stores like Nike Shoe Factory, OshKosh B ‘Gosh, Wilson’s Leather, and more. There are also great places to eat like Sweet Delights, Snack City, Le Gourmet Chef, and more.
Be sure to stay in Bandon at the Inn at Face Rock. They have nice rooms and friendly staff. The beach is right outside your door. For me, Bandon has some of the most beautiful beaches. There is also a city center with neat shops and food. Be sure to try the cranberry candies. They give free samples of all kinds of sweets. They mostly have fruit-filled things, but there are some things like peppermint crust and chocolate candies that don’t contain fruit.
