WOOOOHHHHHH! SPRING BREAK!!!
Blue skies are coming back, baby! Spring is just around the corner. It’s time to plan your trip out to the coast and what you want to do when you get there.
Borrow a bike! Play in the pool! Sweat in the sauna! Bask on the beach! We put together this guide for you with ideas for vacation activities and leisure inspiration.
Head over to the Pool House and get into the heated, covered, saline pool, or sweat it out in the barrel sauna at Adrift Hotel + Spa – available to guests of our Long Beach Peninsula properties, Adrift Hotel, Boardwalk Cottages, Inn at Discovery Coast and Shelburne Hotel. You can also book online for spa services at the Adrift Spa if you are looking for a little pampering and polishing during your stay. Book ahead to secure a spot!
On the Oregon side, you’ll find a heated, indoor, saline pool and a spacious adjoining sauna at Ashore Hotel. Take a dip or have a sweat and then gather around the outdoor fire pit after a long day of play!
Appreciate Wild Spaces!
There are so many great ways to explore the natural beauty of the coast. How about from a horse? Guided horse rides are available at West Coast Horse Rides right around the corner from Adrift Hotel + Spa and the Boardwalk Cottages.
The Long Beach Peninsula is home to a wildlife refuge, Audubon bird areas, and countless whale watching spots year round. (See our guide to whale watching!) The viewing platforms in and around the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center and North Head Lighthouse offer the best viewing. Venture out a little further to Cape Disappointment to watch the waves at Waikiki Beach. You will not be disappointed!
