Fall in Love with South Beach, Oregon This Fall!

6 Sep 2023

South Beach, located on the Oregon Coast, offers a variety of fall activities for visitors to enjoy. While the Oregon Coast is known for its stunning landscapes and outdoor opportunities year-round, the fall season has its own unique charm.  

Here are some fun autumn activities in the South Beach area: 

Scenic Drives 

The Oregon Coast is known for its scenic drives, and the fall foliage adds an extra layer of beauty. Take a drive along Highway 101 to enjoy breathtaking coastal views and vibrant bursts of colorful foliage. 


Explore the nearby state parks and hiking trails, such as Yaquina Bay State Recreation Area and Brian Booth State Park. The cooler fall weather is perfect for outdoor adventures. Don’t forget to pack waterproof gear! 


Grab your rain boots and head to the beach. While the weather might be a bit cooler, the long, sandy stretch of beach in South Beach State Park is a great place to search for treasures that might wash ashore.   

Wildlife Viewing 

Fall is a great time for birdwatching and wildlife viewing along the coast. Look for migratory birds and the chance to spot whales as they migrate along the coast. 

Visit Local Attractions 

Explore the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, which offers indoor and outdoor exhibits. It’s a great place to learn about the marine life of the area and stay dry on a rainy autumn day. 

Storm Watching 

The coast can experience dramatic storms further into fall. Find a cozy spot with a view of the ocean and watch the waves crash against the rocks. Be sure to check weather forecasts and take safety precautions. 

Local Dining 

South Beach and nearby Newport offer a variety of restaurants and seafood shacks. Enjoy local specialties like fish and chips, clam chowder, and seasonal treats – like warm apple cider and pumpkin spice lattes at several coffee shops in the area. 

Fall Festivals 

Look for any fall festivals or events happening in the area. These might include harvest festivals, farmers and crafters markets, and more.
