Don't let the rain fool you, winter is the best season on the Oregon Coast! Celebrate the holidays far from the crowds of summer tourists. Experience the coast alongside locals who will share their fresh-caught Dungeness crab, handmade arts and crafts and stories of winter storms. Gaze upon a bay filled with lighted boats as you participate in a holiday boat parade. Seek your own treasure on the beach in front of your hotel.


• Learn how to make the coast's iconic blown-glass floats, then meet the area's marine residents at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.
• Feast on local seafood and sample Rogue Brewery seasonal ales.
• Watch as the spectacular Shore Acres Botanical Gardens in Coos Bay are transformed into an unforgettable festival of lights.
