A Good Raincoat for Your Oregon Beach Vacation

The rain comes often during winter in the Pacific Northwest, but that won’t ruin your stay at an Oregon beach home rental. Lincoln City, Oregon has lots for you to do, and around here we are used to dealing with rainy days.

When you book vacation rentals in Lincoln City, Oregon, one of the first things you should pack is an excellent raincoat. It will be an absolute necessity when you come to stay in Oregon coast beach rentals during the winter.

Beautiful Lincoln City Oregon Beach Sky

But not all rain jackets are created equal. Some may be too light, and they won’t keep a stiff breeze off you when you hike to the summit to take in a panoramic view near your beach condo rental. Others may keep you warm and dry, but they make you look like a school kid out of place.

Some rain jackets, however, are crafted with excellent materials, thoughtfully designed, and they will complement, rather than clash, with the rest of your ensemble.

When looking for a rain jacket consider the number of layers it has. Are you the sort of person who gets cold easily? If so, you will need to find one with more layers inside.

Another consideration is portability. You may not need a raincoat when you leave your Oregon beach rental near Lincoln City, Oregon, but by the end of the day you may be facing a soaking rain. One should always be prepared, so having a raincoat that packs tightly — preferably within its own packing mechanism — can really save the day.

As for style points, this is, of course, up to the consumer and the style and look they’re trying for. Most rain coast come in a conventional coat shape that will go below the waist and keep your rear end dry if you should sit down. Hoods are common and are often reversible or removable.

Other rain jackets will have more of a poncho appearance. These can be more fashionable, depending on the person’s taste, and they may not even look like raincoats at all!

Pocket configurations are also an important consideration. How many pockets are there? Where are they? Are they easy to get at in a pinch, and will they keep your wallet and phone dry?

Naturally, a price point may come into the consideration, and often the better configurations of pockets and accessories, nicer styles, and higher quality materials, mean a higher sticker price. But whatever the price, a good raincoat can mean the difference between an adventure of a different sort and an experience that you’d rather forget.

But regardless, one thing you can’t go wrong on is renting one of our qualities, clean, comfortable Oregon coast vacation rentals near Lincoln City, Oregon. Book today!

Five Reasons to take a Beach Vacation in Lincoln City, Oregon this Fall

Fall may be the best time of year to stay at beach rentals in Lincoln City, Oregon. Here are five reasons why you want to set aside some time this fall and make your way to Oregon oceanfront property near Lincoln City, Oregon.

  1. Smaller crowds. Most people come out in the summer when the weather is warmest, and the days are longest. But in the fall, the water is at its warmest, and, except for the days around the twice-yearly Kite Festival, the crowds are smaller. The seven miles of sandy beaches along Lincoln City are much less populated this time of year, so you have more time just you, the sound of the surf, and the gentle wind on your face.

  2. Whale watching. Fall is the time for the gray whales to make their way south to warmer climates.

But even those without such a view can find higher ground around Lincoln City where they can sit for a while and watch nature go by.

  3. Kite Festival. Every fall thousands of kite aficionados come together in Lincoln City for the Kite Festival. Professional kite fliers put on a series of shows and demonstrations over two days, entertaining thousands of tourists, and fellow kite fanatics. If you’re a fan of kites make sure you find out the dates and book your lodging in Lincoln City, Oregon well in advance, because spaces will fill up!

  4. Finders Keepers. Fewer people on the beach means your odds are better to find a unique glass orb hidden on the beach. Finders Keepers is a year-round program where local glass artisans make unique glass orbs and hide them along the coast. Staying at beach condo rentals near Lincoln City, Oregon is a great way to be the first ones on the beach. Those who come out in the fall have an even better chance to find one of these treasures.
