HI! First off I want to thank all the people who generously give their time to surf around this forum helping people - you're amazing!
SO, I have been surfing around myself online and am pretty lost - it seems like every place has the things we want to do, but God knows which ones are the best places for each, you know?
I'm looking at the Nelscott Manor for July 14th-17th so I came to the Lincoln City forum with the intention of reading threads to find out what there is to do in Lincoln City and surrounding area for 3 days. I thought of Newport at first, but was drawn to the suite on the beach.
My fiance and I live in Portland and due to Mexico's new microshipping thing we had the thought, "Oregon is beautiful and we never get out to see it..." Thus, the idea of traveling from our Sheridan wedding to the coast was born. I've lived in Oregon for most of my life and have done very, very little at the beach. I know it's going to be the best honeymoon!
I'll try to not get too excited and wordy...
Here's the list of things we've never done:
Crabbing & fishing, (will we be sitting on the dock all day and not actually catch anything in July?)
Quads, (Florence? Is there anything else in Florence?)
tide pools, agate hunting, bird watching
staying in a yurt
canoe or kayaking
whale watching, (that doesn't happen in July though, right?)
flying a kite?
The Aquarium, (thus I should find other things in Newport)
Some of the things, like yurts, boating around and birdwatching we can combine. We were thinking about Devil's Lake for that one, but these are just things I've found online.
Thanks to the person who posted the 101 mile by mile site, by the way.
Ah guys & gals, I am definitely a bit overwhelmed. I just started medical school and he just proposed - not a lot of time and that's why I decided to post this long request for suggestions. I'll continue to independently search, of course, but I wanted to ask your advice.
Thank you so much!
