Holiday Lights at Oregon’s Shore Acres

Shore Acres began as a private estate with luxurious gardens featuring trees, shrubs and flowering plants brought from around the world. In 1906 Louis J. Simpson, pioneer lumberman and shipbuilder, built a beautiful home for his wife, Cassie, perched on a scenic bluff above the spectacular Oregon Coast and the Pacific Ocean.  Today it is an Oregon State Park where something is in bloom almost every day of the year.

Plan your trip so that you can spend the afternoon and early evening viewing seals, sea lions, elephant seals and other marine life from the newly built observation deck overlooking the scenic Oregon Coast at the Simpson Reef Overlook.  Bring your binoculars to scan the horizon for a glimpse of migrating whales and  shorebirds.

Then, a dusk, head into the gardens for the spectacular Holiday Light Show.  The gardens are lit with 300,000 lights, mostly LED of course, and sculpted into pelicans, puffins, jellyfish, Shore Acres’ cranes, a life-size leaping Orca whale and a spouting Gray Whale, flora and fauna, leaping frog in a pond and so much more.

We invite you to start your Oregon Coast Adventure by booking your stay at an Oregon Coast Bed and Breakfast.   Whale and storm watching, the holiday lights at Shore Acres, and an relaxing stay at an Oregon Bed and Breakfast, makes for a quiet winter getaway.
