Escape to the Beach this Winter in Pacific City, OR
There’s something unique about a winter spent on the Oregon coast—gorgeous overcast days, crisp and breezy afternoons, and an expanse of natural wonders to explore. You can enjoy a bit of that seasonal temperature drop, but you can expect things to average in the low 50s during the day, opening a world of outdoor recreation to you. At the same time, you can cozy up around the fire in your vacation rental on rainy days and take a dip in the hot tub on chilly nights. It’s the kind of destination that’s just as perfect for adventure as it is for relaxing and soaking up the scenery. Since we’re a small town, it’s wise to plan and book your winter 2022 getaway ahead of time, ensuring you have a vacation rental reserved by the time the season arrives—especially if you’re looking to book one of our holiday rentals!
Explore Cape Kiwanda and the Three Capes Scenic Loop
Pacific City is home to Cape Kiwanda, a massive sandstone cape that extends into the sea and offers sweeping views of the beach and the towering Haystack Rock in the water past the break. Once you’ve explored Cape Kiwanda, you can embark on the famous Three Capes Scenic Loop, which will take you up to Cape Lookout, and Cape Meares. We have some beachfront homes in Kiwanda Shores where the sand is just outside your back door, and where you can relax in your hot tub with epic views of the ocean and Cape Kiwanda. Understandably so, properties with features like these tend to get booked quickly, which is another excellent reason to be thinking about booking your winter 2022 vacation ahead of time!
Winter Wildlife Watching in Pacific City, OR
If you love to spot a wild critter or two, Pacific City and the surrounding area offer quite a few chances to glimpse creatures in their natural habitat. December marks the start of whale watching season, and you can take a local tour, or try to spot a few migrating Gray Whales from the top of Cape Kiwanda. Walk the trails at Bob Straub State Park for a chance to see migratory birds and coastal wildlife along the beach—you might even spot a seal or sea lion! Explore along the Nestucca River and you might see a variety of avian life such as birds of prey, as well as rarer creatures like otters.
