Plan Your Spring Getaway with Oregon Beach Vacation Rentals

Can you feel spring coming? It’s in the air. Things just start to smell different. This is especially true in the Pacific Northwest, and the perfect places to enjoy the coming of spring are Oregon coast beach rentals. Lincoln City, Oregon has loads of them. 

Whether you stay north of town or south, whether you have a beach vacation rental on oregon beachfront property, or your vacation rental in Oregon has more of a mountain view, there are many great springtime things to do in Lincoln City, Oregon.

Day trips include heading toward the mountains or along the coast for a hike. Plenty of the hiking trails in the area are accessible to those with disabilities or those who are just looking for a leisurely stroll for an hour or two. But there also are more rigorous hikes which can include quite a bit of change in elevation! The climb is difficult, but the views from the top are a great payoff. And then you’ll return to your Oregon coast beach vacation rentals ready for a shower and a calm night in. 

For those who still like nature but who are more in tune with city life, Lincoln City has a few outdoor park and recreation spaces right in town. The beach is always a popular place to stroll — though the water is a bit cold for swimming most of the year. And as you’re strolling you may find a treasure in the form of sea shells, or a glass ornament left over from our most recent “Finders Keepers” event.

Finders Keepers is an annual event where some of our local glass artisans craft glass balls and other items and hide them along the beach and send them out to sea. They float along and come upon shore where those who come out for the fun can claim them for their own. A unique memento of your time staying in Oregon and your beach condo rentals!

Speaking of glass blowers, those on spring vacation or spring break in Oregon can book a time with a glass blower in town to have a class in the art of glass blowing. This ancient craft produces some of the most beautiful and cherished keepsakes. The experts in town will gladly help you choose a project and colors, and help you execute your one-of-a-kind souvenir from your spring break on the Oregon coast. 

And last but certainly not least is the culinary scene and night life. Lincoln City has you covered on those scores as well. Lincoln City is happily a family-friendly town, but that doesn’t mean the restaurants all emphasize their kiddie menus, nor that the sidewalks roll up at 10 pm. From incredible seafood fresh from the Pacific, to Asian fusion combinations you never imagined, to good hearty Americana, and featuring plenty of organic, ethical, and special diet needs, the food scene in Lincoln City, and all up and down the Oregon coast, will satisfy every palate.

Sometimes You Just Want to Go Out

But even with all that comfort and convenience, sometimes you still just want to go out and catch a flick in a quirky, beloved historic theater. 

Lincoln City can accommodate that, too.

Built in 1937 and originally called “Lakeside Theater,” the Bijou Theater originally help 270 people. Situated right on the main drag of 101 in Lincoln City, the Bijou screens film festivals and art films, plus the occasional big ticket show. 

“Bijou,” French for “jewel,” is a fitting name for this gem of a theater. Built as the Great Depression was still going and before World War II had started in Europe, the Bijou showed some of the great films of the Golden Era of Hollywood. Stars like Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, John Wayne, Irene Dunne, Fred Astaire, Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby, Jimmy Stewart, and so, so many others graced this space with their great performances. 

Several Owners Made Various Changes

The Bijou went through several owners, and more than one facelift, but the current owners have put in a good amount of work to restore many of the original art deco interior design elements, as well as expanding its seating capacity. 

Concessions at the Bijou also are something different. To be sure, they have all your favorite movie house favorites — buttery popcorn, Milk Duds, Sno Caps, and all those classic candies, plus fountain drinks galore. But you can also order an Oregon craft brew beer, and something more substantial to eat, delivered straight from a nearby restaurant. This is a movie-lovers happy place.

The Bijou is presently — March of 2022 — still operating under COVID protocol, with reduced capacity, social distancing requirements, and regular cleanings, but the days are fast approaching when we will once again be able to share the cultural experience of a packed movie theater, with a tense or emotional scene drawing us all into the action flickering on the screen. 

An Opportunity Not To Be Missed

Don’t miss the opportunity to see a great film in a great venue when you stay at any of the many great beach condo rentals near Lincoln City, Oregon.
