Easter weekend will be here soon. If you've got an itchy rabbit foot and need somewhere to go for the weekend, how about Pacific City on the Oregon Coast.
The Pacific City Association is hosting its second annual Follow the Balloons Treasure Hunt on Saturday, April 11th, 11 am to 3 pm.
Register at the 4 way stop at Brooten and Pacific in the center of town. You will receive a map and basket. Follow the map and balloons to collect items and tour the downtown. Each business on the Treasure Map will have Easter Eggs for the kids. Adults will return the map for a raffle ticket for each member business visited to put in a drawing of their choice.
Drawings for great prizes that include art, lodging and dining will be held at 3:00pm at the Registration Tent.
Face painting, music, Easter Bunny and fun for all! And you'll need somewhere to stay in Pacific City. Of course the Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild offers tremendous Oregon Coast lodging. Try one of these fine bed and breakfast inns and skip the Oregon Coast hotels:
The Craftsman B&B welcomes you right onto the beach, walking distance to Pacific City and the beaches.
If you're looking for more activity after the Treasure Hunt, the Activity Page on this B&B's website will have more than enough suggestions.
The Sandlake Country Inn is one of the more unusual Oregon bed and breakfasts. Diane & Ron only serve breakfast to your suite.
If you want the inside scoop of things to see and do, check out the Inn's blog, "What's Happen'Inn at Sandlake Country Inn"
The view from Eagle's View Bed and Breakfast is truly spectacular. The inn is nestled away from crowds on the high ground overlooking Nestucca Bay with views of the Little Nestucca River.
From their website we read a guest's comments:
What a beautiful view from the window seat. Looking out onto the bay is very tranquil. The home is absolutely lovely and the room was perfect. Your generosity for making us welcome (movies, CD's, etc.) was more than appreciated - terrific & a 4 star breakfast."
