Most of us would love to be in a sunny place for our Spring Break, but not all of us can make the trip. Whatever the reason for staying home, you can still have a great vacation…or, should we say, “STAYCATION.” Here are some ideas to make your time in Northwest Oregon one to remember.
While most of us would love to be in California tanning on the beach, not all of us can make that happen. Luckily, Seaside, Newport, and other beaches to the west are close enough for a day trip.
One of the best parts about traveling is trying the different foods of the area. One way to try a variety of food in little time is heading down to food cart pods. Within walking distance of Beaverton High School you can head down to BG’s Food Cartel.
Sadly, traveling to the eastern hemisphere during our week off is out of reach for most, but we might have an alternative where you can see Japanese culture. The Portland Japanese Garden is one of the prettiest places in Oregon and is only a short drive.
When most people think of Spring Break, they think of somewhere warm and sunny. This next idea might not fit into that stereotype. An hour-and-a-half drive can get you to one of the prettiest places in Oregon: Mt. Hood. Whether you want to spread the slopes or just relax in the lodge, the mountain is a great place to be on your week off.
Although it is almost a five-hour drive, this might be the most worthwhile staycation idea. Crater Lake is the only National Park in Oregon, and from first-hand experience, it was the most stunning things I have ever seen. Pictures don’t do it justice, and I suggest spending one of your days off explore the deepest lake in the United States.
For whatever reason you’re staying home during Spring Break, we all deserve a little get away!
