Spring Break Weekend Lodging for Oregon Coast,
|Lincoln City: where there are the most hotels from Seattle to San
(Oregon Coast) – It’s the big, wild weekend
of spring break on Oregon’s coast, where many school districts’
vacations overlap, and when the largest influx of tourists is expected
to swamp coastal lodgings. Many – especially vacation rentals –
have reported being filled up with reservations a while back for this
Most Oregon schools are wrapping up their breaks, while
many Washington schools begin theirs this weekend. This means a much busier
coastline than last weekend, as both areas of the northwest, along with
a smattering of colleges and visitors from other states, vie for motel
rooms across the Oregon coast.
So far, even the weekdays have proven bustling in all coastal
towns, although lodging won’t be too difficult to find during the
week. Seaside has so far seen the biggest flurry of activity, but even
smaller towns like Manzanita have experienced a sizable rush of people.
