Valentine's Week Highlights on Oregon Coast

(Oregon Coast) – Oh, the romance of it all. Sure, it's corny: but the Oregon coast is the place for those long, hand-holding walks on the beach the singles ads wax on about.

It's more than just that, however, on these beaches. The Oregon coastline is chock full of gushy stuff to do at night as well. With this Valentine's Day falling on the slightly awkward middle of the week (much less convenient for balancing work and romance than the weekend), the weekend just before the big day seems to be the hot ticket for romance-inducing events.

Time to clear your social calendar and set your sails for the beaches with these happenings of the heart.

Note: since the holiday is during the week, look here for Oregon coast lodgings that will be offering tempting romance packages and off-season prices.

The Astoria Valentine's Day Ball (previously the Father Daughters Dance) happens on February 10. The Astoria Parks and Recreation Department and the Astoria Downtown Historic District Association (ADHDA) host this evening of music, dancing, refreshments, crafts, photo opportunities, special treats, and more. This night is fun for the whole family. 5:30 p.m. The cost is $5 per person. Tickets at the door will cost $10. Elks Lodge 453 11th St, Astoria, Oregon. (503) 325-7275.
