Do you live in Empire? My grandpa does. =) What a small world! He's lived there for 70 years...and only moved a block. It's beautiful in Coos Bay.

Ah, they are spelled just a little different. We never explored there but went that way several times to the Coast.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

well the Charelston I am talking about it right on the coast at North Bend and Coos Bay as you can see the ocean from Shore Achers state parks and their botinical garden there.....it is closer to the ocean than Coos Bay and North Bend are as they sit on the bay section of the area.

It's between Florence and Junction City. It's not on the Coast itself.

I've never heard of Charleston, Oregon...but I haven't spent too much time south of Florence...so that's probably the reason. Maybe we'll have to check it out.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions! We ended up going To Sunset beach in Charleston. It was a chilly day for the coast, but worth it.

Theresa...I love Shore Acres, too. My Great Grandfather was a caretaker/gardener there for years. My grandpa lives just outside Charleston.

In Charelston (outside of Coos Bay/North Bend) is Shore Achers state park where there is a beautiful botanical garden there.

There are also some great Used Book stores along the way and some shops where you can watch them make Myrtle Wood items and Hand Blown Glass. You would need to look them up on the internet to see where they are, if they are still doing it.

Further sad news---the BEST clam chowder restaurant closed about a year ago in Florence.

My advice. Just take time.
Florence has the sand dunes. There are several park accesses.

Hecta Head lighthouse.
The lighthouse at Coos Bay--it has a tour.

Toledo has the antique stores.

I think Whale watching is starting.

Towards Coos Bay you have the rockier coast line.

The Deer Park is close I think and there is a protected herd of Elk just inside fences along side the road towards Florence.

I'll be visiting the coast this weekend, Coos Bay, and bringing along my cousin who is visiting from Washington. Does anyone have any suggestions for MUST see things from Florence to Coos Bay for an out of towner?
Thanks!
