You’ve raced the steepest slopes, mastered the moguls and carved your share of champagne powder. So where does a snowboarding enthusiast such as yourself turn when this wintry spot has lost its luster? Coastal Oregon may sound counterintuitive, but with a few modifications and a little enthusiasm, you’ll soon be ruling the slopes – er, dunes – of this Pacific Coast destination. At Driftwood Shores, it’s easier than ever to get a handle on the extreme sport of sandboarding. Packages come fully equipped with discounts on everything from lodging and rentals to exclusive access to Sand Master Park, the world’s first sandboard park. Strap on your sandboard, sand sled or skim board and cruise miles of jumps, slides and bowls that accompany Coastal Oregon’s traditional sand dune slopes. Take time to admire the scenery, too, which includes acre after acre of golden sands bordered by Oregon rainforest. And a dive into the Pacific Ocean’s cool, clear waters makes for a refreshing way to rinse all that sand away!

Fortunately, Best Western Ocean View Resort strikes a middle ground that pleases all ages on Oregon family vacations. First, there’s the Pacific Coast’s famous Promenade, a two and a half-mile stretch of boardwalk once traveled by the likes of Lewis and Clark.

Mosey a few miles south to the Seaside Aquarium, where harbour seals wait to greet you with outstretched flippers. Their fishy fare may not be nearly as appetizing to you as it is to them, but we found a Pacific Coast confection that might tempt your tastebuds.
