How to Plan the Perfect Oregon Coast Vacation

Ecola State Park Oregon Coast
A Guide to Planning Your Upcoming Trip to the Oregon Coast
If you’re a fan of stunning ocean views, eating delicious food, shopping at quaint boutiques and visiting art galleries, the Oregon Coast is the perfect vacation destination for you. Named one of the world’s most beautiful places, Cannon Beach has it all. Watch birds, go hiking or just soak in the incredible views.

Though summer is the peak season, we recommend that the best time to visit is in early fall. From September to October, you can still enjoy everything that the city has to offer, without the crowds, and at lower rates. With 363 miles of fully accessible coastlines, “the People’s Coast” welcomes you to a trip of a lifetime.

Things to Do on the Oregon Coast

There is no stopping the adventures when you visit our beautiful coast. Once you arrive at your Oregon Coast vacation rental and unpack your bags, here are a few things you can look forward to during your stay:
Island off Oregon Coast
  • Explore Nature: For vacationers staying at Cannon Beach or Arch Cape, some of Oregon’s most beautiful scenic wonders are just a short drive away. If hikes, walks on the beach and picnics in the sand are your idea of a perfect vacation, Neahkahnie Mountain, Oswald West State Park, and Haystack Rock are just a few of the must-see places nearby.
  • Plan an Experience: If you want to plan a day on the town, visit a museum, catch a show and have a delicious meal at one of the numerous excellent restaurants nearby, there is no end to the choices available. Cannon Beach and the surrounding area is home to all kinds of interesting pastimes for all tastes. Book a yoga retreat, take surf lessons or test your courage on the high-lines!
  • Keep an Eye on the Weather: Rain or shine, there is always something fun to do nearby. But if you have your sights set on a particularly sunny and warm Oregon vacation, we recommend keeping up to date with the local weather. That way, if you’re in for some rainy days, you will at least know to pack some board games! Booking later in the summer is also a smart move if you are determined to avoid the rain as much as possible.
  • Bring your Pets: We have a long list of pet-friendly rental properties for vacationers who prefer to travel with their favorite four-legged friends. This way you don’t have to worry about boarding them and can take the whole family along for a memorable Oregon vacation.
