Global Discovery Vacations Review: Christmas on the Oregon Coast

Global Discovery Vacations member Suzanne K. visits the Newport, Oregon, area rather frequently (it helps that she’s been on more than 50 vacations with the membership). Her recent Christmas stay at Embarcadero Resort was pretty much par for the courses, with jagged shorelines, crabbing and memorable lighthouses. She shares some tips in this week’s Member Monday.
