Romance Blooms on Oregon Coast with Valentine Specials
(Oregon Coast) – With that big gushy holiday coming up, and it's on a holiday weekend too, the Oregon coast is gearing up for a monster rush of lovers and would-be lovers. Since President’s Day happens on Monday the 15th – the day after Valentine's – it's likely to be a tsunami of visitors.
Yet the good deals abound on the beach. Romance packages are sprouting up all over, and many lodgings are not only keeping prices below the usual three-day weekend holiday boost but leaving winter rates intact, as well as offering goodies for the hand-holding set.
