YOU GO, GIRLS! - Oregon Coast Visitors Association


Posted by OCVA / October 29, 2009

Slip on Your Sandals and Kick up Your Heels — It’s Girls’ Getaway Month on the Oregon Coast.

Leave the boys at home with the big screen TV, the couch and the non-stop football games – it’s time to express your inner Lara Kroft and explore a whole world of adventures right here on The People’s Coast!

Want a taste of the wild side? Suit up for scuba diving in Port Orford or boogie boarding in Florence. Stretch your legs on scenic hiking trails. Chum around with ocean wildlife at the Seaside or Oregon Coast aquariums. Cast your wild-eyed eyes on the wonders of migrating whales, lollygagging sea lions and the frenzied flights of our fine-feathered friends.

Prefer to sit down to a culinary treat? Well, sink your teeth into this: You’ll experience a full palette of flavors to savor, from award-winning clam chowder to a seven-course gourmet breakfast. The People’s Coast caters to any taste.

Sleep in a yurt or camp out in a luxury suite. Park the RV and go fly a kite. Search for mushrooms or bargain-priced antiques. Immerse yourself in a local arts festival, a soothing hot tub or, if you like water colors, both. Explore tide pools and the great cosmic mysteries of life.

Go ahead; reach for the stars! It’s all within reach right here.

Take a gander at this month’s special events and offers. Then grab your best gal pals and treat all your senses to a great getaway on the Oregon Coast. It’s a good sight better than that big screen TV and – unlike the remote control – once you find it, it’s all yours.
