It’s a great time to check into one of A1’s beach vacation rentals. Oregon Governor Kate Brown recently issued a press release announcing that the state is loosening its COVID-19 restrictions following CDC guidance. This means that fully vaccinated people in Oregon no longer have to wear masks or physically distance except for when required by federal, state, and local regulations. Aside from certain settings such as public transportation, nursing homes, hospitals, and other healthcare centers, vaccinated people in Oregon are free to go out to places such as restaurants and entertainment venues without a mask and enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere. For those who have been fully vaccinated, it’s a wonderful time to get out and enjoy everything the Oregon coast has to offer without impediments. Here are a few ideas to inspire you if you’re ready to visit Lincoln City and enjoy this new relaxed atmosphere safely and comfortably.
Take in a Live Show
Live entertainment has always been a popular reason for booking our beach house rentals. Lincoln City, Oregon saw its live venues shut their doors in the last year, but now that restrictions are loosening there are events popping up around town. Chinook Winds Casino Resort has a schedule of upcoming events, while bars and restaurants such as Beachcrest Brewing Company and Marci’s Bar & Bistro are offering live entertainment for their patrons outdoors and now indoors as well. Upcoming performances such as The Perry Gerber Duo live at Beachcrest Brewing Company on May 22 are sure to draw a crowd.
Appreciate Local Art
Lincoln City has long been known as an artists’ town with many opportunities to view and purchase locally made artworks. While virtual events have pretty much been the only option during the last year, art is better enjoyed in person rather than on a computer screen, whether it’s blown glass, pottery, paintings, or sculptures. Now you can see it all when staying in one of A1’s beach vacation rentals. Lincoln City visitors and locals alike are sure to enjoy upcoming events such as the Art on the Edge 2021 self-guided art tour of well-known visual artists’ studios.
Enjoy a Delicious Meal
The Oregon coast offers a bounty of fresh produce and seafood, so local restaurants have a wealth of resources to work with and visitors have a variety of dining options to choose from. Whether you want to sample a flight of wine and cheese pairings, enjoy locally sourced seafood chowder, or try some freshly prepared Mexican or Thai cuisine, Lincoln City’s culinary masters have you covered. And now that masking and social distancing restrictions are being lifted for vaccinated people in Oregon, the atmosphere is going to be much more relaxed.
