Revive That Romance: A Sweet Weekend Escape with that Special Someone in Olivia Beach


There are times when you just need to get away from everything and spend some time reconnecting with your special someone. During those times, you just want to find someone to look after the kids, sit the pets, and check on your house. Once you’ve gotten those things checked off your “to-do” list, you’re ready to whisk your significant other away for a weekend of romance and intimacy.
Now the question is, where do you go? Unless you’ve got a lot of disposable income, you probably can’t just hop on a plane and jet off to some exotic locale. Luckily for you, there’s an amazing and picturesque location that’s only a quick road trip away: Olivia Beach.

Olivia Beach, Oregon

Olivia Beach is a gorgeous and quiet beachside community located along the Oregon coastline, and even the journey going there can be the start of your romantic getaway with your partner. Imagine feeling the salty, fresh ocean breeze against your face as you drive along the I-5 highway with your windows down. Along the way, you will pass by rocky coasts, beautiful sandy beaches, and glittering waters. Your final destination would be Olivia Beach!
From the moment you arrive at Olivia Beach, you will feel like you have stepped into a time machine! The gorgeous homes featuring classic Nantucket-style architecture, the quaint playgrounds and green spaces, and the quiet and inviting beaches will make you think that you’ve arrived in bygone eras.

Things to Do Outside

One of the best things about Olivia Beach is that you’ll be hypnotized by the natural beauty and tranquility of the area, and you’ll spend most of your time exploring everything that the area offers. Aside from the amazing beaches where you can swim, surf, and stroll along the sandy shores, there is a multitude of other outdoor activities that you can enjoy. Some of the most popular beaches in the area include D River Beach and Rockaway Beach.
Lincoln City, known as the kite capital of the world, is a great place to spend your romantic weekend. It has an amazing mix of wide spaces and a generally windy climate, making it perfect for a kite flying afternoon or two with your partner. In fact, kite flying is so popular here that there are two festivals dedicated to it! One is held in June and the other is held in October. Lincoln City is so inviting and enjoyable, you might even consider extending your stay there.

Drink and Feast the Night Away

 If you and your partner love trying new local restaurants and bars, then you’re in luck at Olivia Beach. There are so many wineries, breweries, and eateries around that you might even have trouble choosing where to go!
For a long-time crowd favorite, you can visit McMenamins. This restaurant/brewery has branches all over the northwest, with one of the branches found in Lincoln. They have an extensive menu of delicious appetizers and entrees meant for sharing, as well as a selection of beers brewed in-house.
For a more laid-back and fun atmosphere, plan a night to visit The Black Squid Beer House. This bar has Trivia Tuesdays if you want to flex your trivia muscles and impress your partner, and they serve a wide and eclectic mix of spirits and liquors, such as in-house beers, cider, wine, and even mead and Kombucha! However, they don’t serve food, so you may want to get your snacks somewhere else.

Check Out the Local Events

No matter what time of year you plan to visit Olivia Beach, you’ll probably find something exciting and fun to do. Luckily, the Oregon Coast Visitor’s Association has you covered with a comprehensive calendar of activities that you can do throughout the year.

Take a Hike

Since you’re going away with your partner to enjoy some alone time, why not do it while enjoying the beauty of nature up close? There are several natural locations around Olivia Beach that you can enjoy together, such as Drift Creek Trail or Marjal de Pego Natural Park.
If you want to kick things up a notch, you can even rent a mountain bike from popular rental company eXtrem Tracks, and go for an adrenaline-pumping bike ride together!

Where Should We Stay?

There are many lodging options that you can choose from in Olivia Beach, but if you really want to experience living like a local, check out Sweet Haven Rentals. You can choose from a wide range of rental homes that will fit your needs and budget, whether you’re looking for a home with a pool, a cozy fireplace, or one that’s located right on the beach.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
