Oregon Coast Adventure at Garibaldi
Take an amazing coastal voyage of discovery to Oregon’s sleepy mill town in Astoria. Established as a fur-trading post in 1811, it’s the oldest immigrant settlement west of the Rockies. Yet with its vital location — where the mighty Columbia River meets the Pacific — Astoria’s heritage is even more intertwined with the sea. The terrific Columbia River Maritime Museum anchors a beguiling downtown of passing ships, Victorian captain’s homes, seafood restaurants and walking paths along the old cannery wharves.
Detour out to the Coast’s long, sandy beaches. At Fort Stevens State Park, witness the spectacle of the Columbia Bar, the often-wicked meeting of the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean. Nearby, Fort Clatsop re-creates the winter camp of the Lewis and Clark Expedition — the first expedition to cross the western states.
Seaside attracts families with its 1920s-era promenade and boardwalk games. Cannon Beach is its artsy cousin, filled with galleries, boutiques and views of 235-foot Haystack Rock offshore. In between lies Ecola State Park, a delight of sandy coves, forested trails and the cliff-edged cape of Tillamook Head.
Oceans of Wonder Coos Bay Oregon
The Oregon Coast’s largest city and the largest natural harbor between Seattle and San Francisco, Coos Bay is a busy port for commercial and recreational fishing, crabbing and clamming. Nearby, the Charleston to Bandon Tour Route hugs the coast, reuniting with US-101 in Bandon at the mouth of the Coquille River. Bandon is known for its world-class golf, art and sandy beaches punctuated with dramatic sea stacks.
The byway next greets the coastline at Port Orford, an exceptionally scenic fishing harbor and the start of the Wild Rivers Coast Scenic Bikeway. Harbor seals and sea lions often frequent the rocky outcrops at Port Orford Heads State Park. The Sixes and Elk rivers draining down from the Coast Range offer great salmon and steelhead fishing. The Rogue River, a Wild and Scenic River famed for its rafting and fishing, meets the Pacific at Gold Beach. Jet-boat tours power upriver for a look at the scenic Lower Rogue.
The coastal scenery dazzles on its final stretch, as the byway skims along cliffs and rocky shores dotted with tide pools. Beyond Pistol River, a famous windsurfing spot, 12 miles/19.3 kilometers of coastline are designated as the Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor, with ample overlooks, hiking trails and beach access. The byway concludes south of Brookings, a region known for its temperate “banana belt” climate and the largest stand of coastal redwoods in the state.
Wild, Wild Oregon Dunes
The Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area covers forty-two miles from Florence to Coos Bay and it is an Oregon landmark for outdoor recreation. People come from all over to experience 32,000 acres of sand, forest, rivers and lakes. Many plan vacation time at one of the oldest parklands in the state: Jessie Honeyman State Park, just south of Florence – where State Park Historian, Cal Lewis, says camping dates back nearly 80 years. The Civilian Conservation Corps built Honeyman State Park in 1933. The corps was filled with unemployed young men from the cities in the east and they arrived in Oregon to build facilities that the public could use. Nearly eight decades later, the park’s store (once the Cleawox Lake bathhouse) shows off the enduring craftsmanship of rock and timber construction. The sandstone rocks were taken from a local quarry and each stone was hand carved and chiseled into place.
Wine Tasting & Bottle of Wine Included With Your Tent Camper Rental
