Northern Oregon Coast in April

Jump to last reply

I'm flying into Portland on April 7 with my mother and 8 year old son, and plan to spend a couple of nights in Portland (for Columbia River Gorge) and 5 full days on the coast. Our timeline was dictated by son's spring break, but I now realize that it may be everyone else's spring break as well, seeing as Easter is April 8!

We are prepared for cool, rainy weather, but I'm wondering - just how cool and rainy might it be, if we're sticking to the north coast? And, does anyone have experience/insight as to how busy things might be over Easter week?

We were thinking of staying in Cannon Beach for a couple/three nights, then heading down to Newport for two nights before heading back to Portland for our homebound flight. We are hoping to go on a whale watching boat ride, visit the Oregon Coast Aquarium, and just enjoy the beaches and scenery.

So my questions are:

- Guesses on range of weather conditions?
- Will the coastal attractions be jammed on Easter week?
- Any input on moderately priced, near-the-beach accomodations, possibly with kitchenettes and an indoor pool?
- Ideas for kid-friendly, but not cheesy attractions would be welcome!

Thanks!
