Summer crowds on the Oregon Coast can be unbearable at times especially since everyone converges during the peak months crowding the roads and beaches. Not a surprise with more and more people continuing to discover the natural beauty of the majestic Oregon Coast.
When fall comes around, traffic significantly decreases with the weather often being some of the driest weather of the season. WIth the kids back in school and with much less out of state travelers, it makes way for not only lower prices for lodging but smaller crowds which always makes for a better beach experience. The coastal marine layer which often can linger around is much less apparent with less extreme temperatures coming out of the valley often producing some of the nicest days of the year.
Check out the 4 great options from VIP Hospitality Group for lodging on the Oregon Coast each with its own distinct character, amazing views of the Pacific, and award winning hospitality. Fall also comes with it some great promotions so check out their website for some great fall discounts and packages currently being offered:
