Celebrating Mothers Day on the Oregon Coast

May 10, 2017 | by Oregon Coast Cottage Rentals Staff

It’s that time again on the Oregon Coast. Time to put away the snow tires and bring out the kayaks! During the month of May, Lincoln City and Depoe Bay get ready for bonfires, BBQ's, and family fun. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, Bella and Olivia Beach are great locations for a getaway with your loved ones. It might still be raining but that doesn’t mean much on the Oregon Coast!

Finders Keeps Glass on the Beach Oregon Coast

Finders Keepers

During May, the Finders Keeper Fairies will be dropping glass floats along the 7 ½ mile stretch of Lincoln Cities beaches. Floats are placed during the day and will be located above the tide line. They don't make the treasure hunt easy, so make sure to look behind logs or large rocks! Don’t forget, Mother’s Day weekend Finders Keepers will drop an extra 100 floats. This is the last month of Finders Keepers for the year. The Floats will be dropped all weekend, so grab your family and take a walk on the beach!

Clamming
Is your mom a little more adventurous and ready to check something off her bucket list? Well, why not try clam hunting? During low tide, Siltez Bay located at the south edge of Lincoln City offers a great location to take the family and try something new. Gear and licensing can be located at our local Ace Hardware or Bi-Mart in Lincoln City. Make sure to grab the best rain boots and check out the weather before heading to the beach as it can be interesting when you have to run from the high tide!

Farmers Market

It’s back! Starting Sunday, May 7th the local farmers market opens its tents and gets ready for a whole new year. Located in the middle of town, right across the street from Dutch Brothers, the local farmers market offers fresh farmed goods and hand-made items that can be found in our local community. The market will be open from 9 am to 3 pm. No matter rain or shine the farmers market is the best place to go after breakfast or a quick stop before you head home!

Outlet Mall

About 5 minutes from Olivia Beach is one of the best outlet malls on the Oregon Coast. The Lincoln City outlet mall offers about 51 different stores ranging from Under Armour, North Face, Columbia and the newly added Torrid. Not only are there everyone's favorite stores, one might find delicious snacks at the frozen yogurt shop, sushi restaurant, or other special treats located around the shopping mall. Open from 10 am to 8 pm Monday through Saturday and 10 am to 6 pm on Sunday, the outlet mall offers a great place to take your family for a little extra treat or maybe just a quick escape from the rain.

With so many things to do and see on the Oregon Coast, it is the perfect escape from everyday stress that life has to offer. Take a weekend away and enjoy some quality time with your loved ones. The beach is the best place to enjoy nature and to make memories!
