When to Go
November through May are generally rainy months (albeit with sporadic stretches of dry and sometimes even sunny days), but once the fair weather comes, coastal Oregon is one of the most gorgeous places on earth. July through September offer wonderful, dry days for beachgoers. Autumn is also a great time to visit, as the warm-enough weather is perfect for crisp beachcombing walks followed by hearty harvest meals paired with ales from the growing crop of craft breweries up and down the coast.
Even with the rain, coastal winter and spring do have quite a following. Many hotels are perfectly situated for storm watching, and provide a romantic experience. Think of a toasty fire, a smooth Oregon Pinot, and your loved one, settled in to watch the waves dance upon a jagged rocky stage.
