Spring

The wilderness comes alive

March, April, and May are great months to visit Gold Beach. The weather is mild and the new growth of spring brings with it a rainbow of different shades of green: from the beach grass next to the ocean to the ferns in the rain forest; from the Myrtle trees growing along the river to the dark evergreen of the Douglas Firs in the national forest. Even the Pacific Ocean has shades of emerald green.

In March and April, our Glass Floats on the Beach season is in full swing. Each February-April hundreds of glass floats are hidden on our beaches for our visitors to find. If you find a glass float you get to keep it plus you also have a chance to enter both a weekly and a monthly drawing at our Visitor Center. One lucky winner is chosen each month for a vacation package that includes a 1-night stay in a local motel, a pair of Jerry’s Rogue Jets tickets, and dinner for two at one of our local restaurants.
