An Oregon Coast Christmas

Christmas Boat Parade, Yaquina Bay, Newport

Snow is a very rare occurance on the Oregon Coast. Sant Claus usually sees scenes like this from his sleigh. While your new Newport or Waldport home or condo may never see much of the cold white stuff, that doesn’t mean that Christmas on the Oregon Coast is a low key affair. The towns dazzle with Christmas lights, the Christmas boat parade in the Yaquina harbor is internationally famous, and the Newport Symphony Orchestra is in full swing at the Performing Arts Center. Christmas shopping on the Central Coast is a major draw, with the local merchants offering one of a kind items and the outlet malls posting their deepest discounts.

Oregon Coast real estate shows very well during this time as the crisp days give way to magnificent views from your new oceanfront windows. Put all this together with the Christmas tree you cut yourself in the forest, a cup of hot cider in front of your own fireplace, and you will agree that there is nowhere finer to spend the holidays than on the beautiful central Oregon Coast.
