Check out these 5 perfect spring break activities on the Oregon Coast your family will love

1. Oregon Coast Whale Watching

Whale watching is a must see when visiting in the Oregon Coast!

The wonderful aspect of whale watching on the Oregon Coast is that it is year-round! No matter what time you visit, you’ll be able to take a whale watching tour.

Through Spring, the gray whales migrate back from the Oregon Coast to Alaska. This migration of over 18,000 whales means there is much whale activity happening during March-June.

If you’re coming outside those months, don’t worry, over 200 whales typically stay off the Oregon Coast instead of migrating. So, no matter what time of the year you visit the Oregon Coast, its always a good time for whale watching.

2. Hug Point State Park

Do you love the outdoors and adventures? If you enjoy walks on the beach with a splash of adventure, be sure to visit Hug Point on your Oregon Coast spring break.

When tides are low, you can walk along the original stagecoach road.

The name of Hug Point comes from stagecoaches having to hug the cliff while traveling around it. Now, no longer a road, you can walk along the side of the cliff and explore the caves within.
