Storm Chasing on the Oregon Coast

The early winter months are a perfect time to book one of our Oregon beach house rentals and experience Mother Nature in all her glory. The central Oregon coast comes alive during this time of year when storm-chasing is a favorite pastime of locals and visitors alike. Lincoln City will be your central hub for an adventure like no other as you watch the storms surge, the waves crash against the rocks, the rains pound the ground and the winds carry you away. There is also plenty to keep you occupied if the weather is calm, from food and drink to art and music. This is one sort of vacation where you won’t be wishing for calm weather, though. The following itinerary should help you see what kind of stormy adventures lie ahead on the central Oregon coast.

A Stormy Experience Like No Other

While summer is the busiest time of year for Lincoln City’s beach vacation rentals, Oregon offers a thrillingly unique coastal environment when winter rolls around. There is a certain electricity in the air as storms draw near and the winds start to whip the air into a frenzy. Weather forecasts can tell you when a storm is approaching, but you can also listen for the sounds of birds singing and chattering wildly before growing eerily calm.

As the mighty sea rages against the coastal lands, you will want to stay away from hiking trails and watch the ocean from a distance. This makes for an ideal time to enjoy a day at a local spa, take a cooking class or learn about the local culture at a museum or gallery. If the grey skies fail to produce any rain, though, you will find that the hiking trails are just as spectacular even when the sun is hiding behind the clouds. After a day of enjoying Lincoln City, you’ll also be happy to enjoy a pre-dinner drink as you take in the view from one of our ocean-facing beach rentals. Lincoln City, Oregon is known for excellent coastal viewpoints and many of our finest vacation rentals boast equally stunning views with windows that wrap round the structure.

As your storm-chasing adventure continues, you may want to leave Lincoln City and take a day trip north through Pacific City, up to Tillamook, into Rockaway Beach and to the Cannon Beach. The drive will showcase many of the area’s best natural wonders, and the arty community of Cannon Beach will offer a comfortable setting as you prepare for the next leg of your journey – the South Jetty in Fort Stevens State Park. Whether the skies are calm, or storms are on the way, the observation deck overlooking the Pacific Ocean in one direction and the Columbia River in the other direction will take your breath away. At this point, though, you may well be ready for the 2½-hour drive back to Lincoln City for the night.

Ongoing Activities to Round Out Your Days

Storm-chasing is a wonderful way to spend your days, but you’ll want to enjoy some other aspects of Lincoln City during your stay. You can take a walk on the beach to find one of the colorfully decorated, hand-blown glass floats that are dropped in various hiding spots every day when the weather permits between October and May as part of “Finders Keepers on the Beach.” Or, live music at the Snug Harbor Bar & Grill and Roadhouse 101 every weekend may tickle your fancy. You may also want to check out The People Are Dancing Again, an ongoing exhibit at the North Lincoln County Historical Museum featuring artifacts such as basketry and beadwork, interpretive panels and fascinating photographs. Book your Oregon beach house rental today and see just how much this area has to offer as winter approaches!

Prepare for a Stress-Free Day on the Beach with the Whole Family

 

Every year, families of all sizes flock to the Oregon beach house rentals in Lincoln City to enjoy a few perfect days (or weeks) along this beautiful stretch of coastline. With such a gorgeous setting and wide array of beach rentals, Lincoln City, Oregon is an ideal setting for a family-friendly vacation. Whether your clan is large or small, though, you will need to do some planning before you set off from your rented beach house for a day at the beach.
Getting Ready – What to Bring for Family Fun
Whether you’re walking or driving to the beach, you will need to pack smart if you want your kids to stay happy and safe while you retain your sanity and even have a bit of fun yourself. The essentials include a mesh beach bag, water shoes, sunscreen, bug spray, lip balm, plenty of water, towels for drying off and big towels for sitting on (also consider yoga mats and foldable chairs for extra comfort), an extra bag for trash, any medications your family may need and, if you have a baby, whatever you’d normally pack in the diaper bag for a day out. If you’re bringing a picnic, also pack napkins, try to pack different foods in separate containers to avoid a sandy mess and consider a folding table for a clean place to eat. Here are a few more things you may want to pack for an extra touch of fun and cosiness:
·      a pop-up beach tent to provide shelter from the sun and sand;
·      a waterproof and/or washable toy for your little ones to cuddle while taking a nap;
·      a blow-up pool that will be your “front yard” for the kids to play in; and
·      toys such as noodles for the water, buckets and spades for building sandcastles, and whatever else will keep your kids entertained while you steal a moment to relax.
How to Keep Safe and Sane on the Beach
A day at the beach can quickly turn ugly if you’re not careful. Therefore, it’s of the utmost importance to think about safety when you’ve got a family in tow along the Central Oregon Coast. Firstly, try chilling your sunscreen to help cool down hot bodies and reapply about every 30 minutes to avoid cancer-causing rays. Pack some loose clothes and baby wipes as well, so you can help cool down any potential victims of sunburn as the day goes by. To avoid unnecessary hassle, think about things like going to the bathroom, keeping everyone well-fed and hydrated throughout the day, how the adults are going to carry everything to the beach, and how you’re going to get everyone off the beach when the day is winding down. And, finally, be wary of the waves and try to choose a spot where you can see a lifeguard.
You’re much more likely to have a full, happy and satisfied day along the Oregon Coast if you plan a few activities that everyone will enjoy. Exploring the local tide pools is a great idea, as you can teach your kids about respecting wildlife and show them magical creatures such as mollusks, snails and starfish that share the sea. Most importantly, let your kids be themselves as long as they aren’t putting themselves or anyone else in danger. A day on the beach should be fun for all!

With the right beach vacation rentals, Oregonand its majestic coastline is the perfect setting for a family vacation. And with the right planning you can create wonderful memories for years to come.

Pack and Plan for a Perfect Beach Trip in Lincoln City, Oregon

Once you’ve chosen the dates and booked your beach vacation rentals, Lincoln City and its 7½ miles of coastline will be yours to explore upon arrival. Whether you’re looking forward to a weekend of fun or planning to stay in one of our Lincoln City beach vacation rentals for a week or longer, there is sure to be some beach time in your itinerary. But what if your seaside excursion goes awry and ruins an otherwise idyllic holiday? Not to worry. The following tips will help ensure that you make the most of your time in this coastal paradise and enjoy a perfect day at the beach every time. 

Start Off by Packing Right

The first step to a perfect day at the Oregon Coast is the right beach bag to pack all the essentials. Make sure you find a bag that is big enough to fit everything you need, and that won’t easily fill with sand which you will inevitably track all over the place. A mesh tote is a good option for this. Also, if you’re packing sandwiches for lunch, make sure to pack each one in a separate container or wrapper, so if one is lost to the sand you’ll still have the rest intact. Now, on to the rest of the packing. Here’s what you’ll need to feel great all day:

·      Sunblock with at least 15 SPF (so you don’t get burned)

·      Bug spray (so you don’t return home covered in bites)

·      Any medications or inhalers that your family needs (in case of an emergency)

·      Bottled water to drink (to keep everyone hydrated)

·      A spray bottle of water with optional green tea bag (to keep your skin cool)

·      Lip balm with SPF (to keep your lips moist and protected from the sun)

·      A piece of cork or flotation device for your keys (so you don’t lose them underwater)

·      Water shoes (so you don’t cut your feet on the rocky ocean floor)

·      Yoga mats for sitting and towels for drying (to provide maximum comfort)

·      Reusable shopping bag or plastic bags for trash (so you don’t litter on the beach)

·      A dust broom if you’re driving (to sweep out sand)

Plan for Safety in Any Situation

If you plan ahead and learn a few helpful facts, you’re much more likely to keep yourself and those around you safe on the beach. Start off by learning about the local rip currents: how to identify them, how to avoid them and how to react if you or someone else is caught in them. Rip currents can often be identified by a break in the waves where you see foam, seaweed, a line of rubbish, choppy water, or different-colored water coming towards you. It’s best to swim where there’s a lifeguard, but if you get caught in a rip current and no one’s around, try to swim parallel to the seashore to avoid the current until you are safely closer to land. And, if you see someone else caught in one, call 911 immediately rather than trying to be a hero.

Health and safety should always be a concern when staying in one of our beach condo rentals. Lincoln City, Oregonis a safe, fun and welcoming place – but the ocean and the rest of Mother Nature are not always so predictable. While this might sound like a lot of planning and worrying for a day on the beach, it only takes a few extra minutes to make sure you’re ready for every possibility. That way, you can sit back and relax once you get there.

How to Pack for Your Upcoming Summer Vacation in Lincoln City

Lincoln City boasts some of the best beach vacation rentals Oregon has to offer, with miles of pristine coastline within walking distance and an array of local treasures to explore during a short stay or a longer getaway. If you’re planning a trip to this beautiful seaside town along the Central Oregon Coast, you can consider yourself lucky! You may also be thinking about all the work that lies ahead in preparing for your vacation, but remember that this is supposed to be a time to relax and have fun. So, follow these simple steps and your packing should be done in no time, so you can sit back and relax as your trip gets underway. 

1.     Pack according to how long you’re staying. Think about how many shirts and other essential articles of clothing you would normally wear in that period of time, then pack one extra. Most Oregon beach house rentals have laundry facilities on-site, but who wants to spend their vacation doing laundry? Keep it simple but avoid packing every possible thing that you might want to wear.

2.     Bring something you’ll feel confident wearing on the beach. Whether you’re wearing board shorts, a one-piece swimsuit or two-piece bikini, you should feel comfortable and confident when you’re enjoying some fun in the sun, sand and waves. Make sure you have some go-to beachwear as well as a casual pair of shorts. Some jeans or sturdy trousers and a light jacket are also a good idea, so you can enjoy walks on the beach later in the evening when it gets cooler.

3.     Picture yourself out on the sand. Getting all the way to your vacation home and walking to the ocean with your beach bag, only to realize you’ve forgotten something essential at home, can put a real damper on a sunny seaside day. So, before you take off, imagine that you are at the beach with everyone who will be joining you during your time away. What will you need to have with you? Sunscreen is an obvious one, but also think of whether you’ll want oversized beach towels, water canteens, buckets and spades, windbreakers, beach umbrellas or any other gear you normally use.

4.     Pack some first-aid essentials. This is especially important if you are traveling with children. If an accident happens, you’ll be glad you packed those bandages, antibiotic ointments, medicated creams and sunburn-relieving Aloe Vera products.

5.     Prepare for the amenities on-hand. Luckily, there are kitchens or kitchenettes in all of A-1’s beach rentals. Lincoln City, Oregon offers a wide range of options for groceries and other conveniences, so you won’t need to pack much in the way of food since you can purchase it all once you arrive. You may want to bring some specialty items to feel more at home, though, and you will definitely want to leave room in your budget for dining out at some of the delectable local restaurants. 

6.     Keep your paperwork in a safe place. The final step you will want to take before heading off for a stress-free summer break on the Central Oregon Coast is getting all your paperwork in order. If you have printouts of online bookings, rental car paperwork, important medical forms or other critical documents, keep them in a clear plastic bag in a safe place where you will remember it.

Now that you’ve finished packing with these six fool-proof steps, you’re ready to enjoy a wonderful time in Lincoln City! With the arrangements out of the way you will only need to “worry” about having fun
