Spring is such a rejuvenating time of year in Oregon. Flowers are blooming, the sun is shining more, and people are ready to get out and explore.

Here is some inspiration for your next trip to the Northern Oregon Coast. 

Take it easy: Is your trip a chance to reset? Sleep in, beach comb, or explore art galleries and tax free shopping. Enjoy some self-care and get a massage and treat yourself at Cannon Beach's Chocolate Cafe. Visit Haystack Rock and enjoy a drive along the coastline. Try to visit at low tide and see what you can discover. Pop into a book store and enjoy some coffee while you relax and unwind.

Good ol' fashioned fun: Young at heart, or traveling with young kids? Stop by Captain Kid Amusement Park just outside Seaside to burn some energy and have some family fun. They have mini golf, a mini roller coaster, gem mining, a rock wall and more. Need some indoor ideas? Visit the Seaside Carousel MallSeaside Aquarium to feed the seals and see other sea life or Seaside Inverted Experience for some other-worldly, unique photos (appointments only). Stuff your face at Bruce's Candy Kitchen (Cannon Beach and Seaside), or Schwieterts Cone and Candy in Cannon Beach.  

History Buff: Start your journey at the statue of Lewis and Clark at the turnaround in Seaside. Head north to Fort Clatsop (location of Lewis and Clark's 1805-06 winter encampment), and head north another 7.5 miles to Hammond to see the wreck of the Peter Iredale Ship located in Fort Stevens. Explore the military site at Fort Stevens, and enjoy the many bike paths, picnicking areas and Coffenbury Lake.  

Adventurous: If you're an adrenaline junkie, the aerial challenge course at Highlife Adventure Park may just be your thing.
