Final Weekend of Oregon Coast Spring Break
Still Has Some Rooms
|Ethereal surroundings to be had at Turk's Lodgings (see Cannon Beach
(Oregon Coast) – It’s the final weekend of
the coast’s spring break season, and it’s still expected to
be a big one. Especially on the north coast, in towns like Seaside, many
businesses there are bracing for the impact of hordes of Seattleites,
along with a portion of tourists from some Oregon school districts and
a few colleges.
It’s the last of BeachConnection.net’s lodging
availability reports, until the big one on Memorial Day. Some 300 lodgings
from Astoria to Florence were contacted, and a decent helping returned
the inquiries with some availability. No surprise, the central coast has
more, but more north coasters reported back this time around.
As always, call ahead to double check on what is available,
as many are reporting rooms are going fast for this coming weekend.
