Sure, our perch on the coast means we're the prime spot for exploring the endless beaches and rolling waves of our magnificent state. But there's so much more to explore right in our own backyard, and we want to make sure you see it all! Here are our top must-see experiences when you're staying with us in Coos Bay:
- Satisfy your desert dreams with a trip to the 32,000-acre Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Towering sand dunes set the scene for long walks, ATV or horseback excursions, and camping in an unreal landscape. Surrounded by both lakes and the Pacific Ocean this is a vista you'll be talking about for years to come.
- Oregon is famous for delicious food, and our crabs are at the top of the list. Rent a boat and gear at a local fishing shop and head out for a day of crabbing. When you arrive back at the dock, many shops will be ready to cook up your catch on the spot while you enjoy a satisfying sunset brew.
- Feeling lucky? The nearby Mill Casino is your next stop, offering over 700 slot machines, gaming tables, 6 eateries and a live-music venue ready to rock your socks off.
- Of course, a trip to the coast wouldn't be complete without, well, the coast! Rent surf gear – including full wetsuits, of course – at one of our nearby outfitters, and they'll point you in the direction of their favorite secret surf breaks. It's a well-known fact that surf's up in Oregon year-round, so no matter the weather you're almost guaranteed a peak experience with little competition.
