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

Everything You Desire in Walking Distance

Another reason why the Whispering Waves is one of the most popular beach vacation rentals Lincoln City has to offer is the convenient location with so many things to do in walking distance. Once you park the car for the weekend you can forget about driving, if you’d like, and walk to some of Lincoln City’s most popular destinations every day and night. You can walk to the nearby family-friendly beach for beachcombing, boogie-boarding, boating, whale-watching, fishing, sunset viewing and much more. Plenty of restaurants and craft shops are also nearby, and if you feel like taking the car out you can easily get to the nearby casino, golf course, kids play centers, theatre, outlet shops, museums and cultural centers. There are also conveniences such as a grocery store, ATM and post office in the vicinity.

If you want to get a third night free during one of the remaining weekends in March at the Whispering Waves Condo, you must act fast and get in touch with A-1 Beach Rentals today. You won’t regret it when you find everything that this popular little Lincoln City condo has to offer.
