It is a fun workout and extremely steep hike that is about a mile or so long. The rugged forest air is invigorating and you might even see some deer on your trek up. As you near the top of the Knoll, you can hear the rolling waves crashing against the Oregon coastline. The exercise and experience from this hike make it completely worth it. If you and your family are looking for something new and challenging to do while exploring the outdoors in Lincoln City and Roads End, then this hike is for you.

To find the hiking area, head up to Roads End, just past Safeway and the Chinook Winds Resort and Casino. Continue on NE Logan Road until you get to NE Sal la Sea Drive. It’s on the right side if you’re coming from Lincoln City. You’ll recognize it as a dirt road. Drive down slowly; people live down this way, and it is a one lane road. When you get to a fork in the road with a closed gate on the right side, park in that area. Continue reading Hiking the Knoll in Lincoln City, Oregon

Vacation Rentals for Newbies

When was the last time that you went on vacation and found the perfect accommodations at an affordable price? Whether you’re looking for the classic beach cottage at homes like On the Beach or a more modern construction at homes such as Beach Daze, if you’ve never experienced vacation rentals we implore you to give it a try today.

What are some advantages to Vacation Rentals?

One of the major advantages vacation rentals can offer travelers is a lot of space at a lower price than traditional hotels. Whereas a group of guests could find hotel rooms sleeping two each on the Oregon coast for around $100 a night, that same group could decide to get a vacation rental sleeping 12 for under $385 a night in July. The savings is dramatic, with over $215 or 35% saved on accommodations. Travelers who frequent vacation rentals find they have more money to spend on activities and restaurants in the area, which is part of the draw of visiting our beautiful coast!

In addition to this savings, the amenities a vacation rental offers cannot be matched by a hotel room; hotel rooms have no space for travelers to gather and converse, or to cook a morning meal before heading out for the day. Vacation rentals are able to offer visitors kitchens and living rooms that enhance vacation time with friends and family. In addition to this, rentals tend to be uniquely situated in the community. Have you ever wanted to be less than a block from beach access? Our homes like Pacific Rest have a backyard with private beach access to the Pacific Ocean! Other homes feature hot tubs or pet friendly accommodations. Whether you’d like to bask in steamy water under the stars or bring Fido on your summer vacation, Oregon Beach Vacations has the perfect accommodation for you.
