Visiting Oregon Coast
Ah, the romance of the Oregon Coast in winter – dramatic storms sending waves crashing along the beach, while you snuggle warmly inside on a storm-watching getaway. Hum - come prepared. Oregon’s coastal geography creates spectacular storm shows as the wind and waves blast against the sand and rocks. Remember, bring a nice rain jacket for getting back and forth from rooms to restaurants, and for a walk on the beach - get ready to get wet. From Brookings in southernmost Coastal Oregon, through Bandon, Coos Bay and Reedsport, stunning vistas abound. Whether it’s Azalea Park in Brookings or Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, enjoy Coastal Oregon.
Brookings, north of the Chetco River from the community of Harbor, dazzles during the holidays. Azalea Park in Brookings, hosts Nature’s Coastal Holiday 2012 during the month of December, transforming the park into a wonderland of sparkling lights and holiday fun. Load the family into the car and make a visit to Azalea Park.
Traveling north from Brookings, be on the lookout for Cape Blanco Lighthouse and the Hughes House. One of the most picturesque lighthouses on the Oregon Coast, this is a functioning lighthouse and Coastal Oregon's highest above sea level. Unfortunately for winter visitors, Cape Blanco Lighthouse is closed for tours, you’ll have to wait until April for the spring tours to begin.
Whale watching and birding along the southern Oregon Coast is fantastic. Take advantage of the views from Cape Blanco or head north to Bandon and the Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge. Located on the Pacific Coast Flyway, Bandon Marsh Refuge is considered one of the best birding sites in Oregon. See pelicans, plovers and sandpipers at Bandon Marsh, north of downtown Bandon across the Coquille River.
Travelers in Bandon are now in Coos County – that’s the Coquille River Lighthouse you see on your way out of town, located in Bullards Beach State Park. Coos Bay and North Bend are 25 miles north of Bandon. Be sure to exit off Oregon Highway 101 to explore Cape Arago State Park and Cape Arago Lighthouse, along the Pacific coast west of Coos Bay. Stock up if necessary, Coos Bay and North Bay make up the largest community along the Oregon Coast.
Reedsport, inland along the Umpqua River from the Umpqua Lighthouse State Park, is a gateway to Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Open year-round, the Oregon Dunes are a must-see destination, featuring 40 miles of constantly reshaping dunes. Sandwiched between the Pacific Ocean and Siuslaw National Forest, views are spectacular and there is no better location for an ATV ride.
