Picturesque Valentine’s Getaway: Oceanside

Dinner for two watching the setting sun. Views of the ocean from a room at the beach. Pancakes and hot coffee in a cozy nook.

Sound romantic? Then Oceanside is your ideal Valentine’s Weekend Getaway.

Nestled away on a steep hillside sits this quaint town. With the charm of a 100-year old village, and widespread views of the Pacific Ocean, it’s the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Take a walk on Oceanside’s beach and admire the view of the homes and businesses tucked into the cliffs. Views of Three Arch Rock are breathtaking, and the agates one can find on the shore are the perfect, cost effective souvenir. Fog may even drift in, giving you that wintertime, picturesque Oregon Coast visit.
