While you are here, we would be happy to recommend great places to eat or things to do. Here are some of our favorite things in the area. See you soon!
- Old Town
Visit our Historic Old Town Florence, situated along the beautiful Siuslaw River. Enjoy a stroll along the boardwalk, experience our truly unique shopping or dine in one of the many restaurants in the district. From chowder to gourmet pizza, crab encrusted halibut to the famous green donkey burrito, patrons can find a variety of foods to fit any budget.
- Oregon Dunes
At the south end of Florence something magical happens; 42 miles of wind-sculpted sand dunes, some towering 500 feet above sea level begin. Formed by the ancient forces of wind, water and time, these dunes are like no others in the world. These are the largest expanse of coastal sand dunes in North America. Opportunity abounds for adventure on the dunes; guided sand rail tours, self guided ATV tours and sand boarding.
- The Beach
Florence is often billed as a river town, and why not with 17 lakes and rivers in and around the area. But the hidden gem is the Pacific Ocean which is located just over the dune. When it comes to enjoying the Ocean, the possibilities for soft adventure are truly endless. Walk along the surf in search of glass floats, shells, agates and driftwood. Hit the Oregon Coast Trail for hiking, biking or horseback riding.
