Surrounded by the Pacific shoreline with its beautiful dunes and lovely beaches, Oregon’s Adventure Coast is located between the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area on the North and Shore Acres State Park, an impressive botanical garden on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, on the South. The area features a variety of outdoor activities including fishing, clamming, wildlife, bird watching, sea lion and whale watching, tours, cycling, and 4-wheel rides in the dunes. The Port of Coos Bay is an active commercial area.
The Coos Bay area also offers a wide range of shopping, entertainment and dining facilities such as Pony Village Shopping Mall, renovated downtown Coos Bay, antique, myrtlewood and gift shops, theatres, and an art museum and gallery.
Coos Bay is the largest community on the Oregon Coast. It has been the commercial center of Oregon’s southern coast since its earliest days.
Cape Arago Lighthouse
Cape Arago is located 12 miles southwest of Coos Bay and North Bend off Hwy 101. It stands 100 feet above the ocean on an islet just off Gregory Point. The light atop the 44-foot-high tower was first illuminated in 1934 and is easily noticeable due to its distinct fog horn. Although newest in terms of service, earlier structures were built on this site in 1866 and 1908, both succumbing to weather and erosion. Hidden behind a guarded fence, Cape Arago is not open to the public.
Coos Bay is a long and circuitous estuary fed by the Coos River among other tributaries; it is considered the best natural harbor between San Francisco and the Puget Sound. The bay\\\'s vast acreage gives anglers plenty of elbow room as they pursue fall chinook (July through October), coho (silver) salmon (October and November) and winter steelhead (December through March). Coos Bay also offers excellent canoeing opportunities through the South Slough Estuarine Reserve, the first federally designated reserve.

Marshfield Sun Printing Museum
Open Tuesday through Saturday 1pm-4pm Memorial Day through Labor Day. Volunteers are always on hand during Museum open hours to interpret and demonstrate the Marshfield Sun's presses and other printing equipment, as well as to answer questions about the Museum's exhibits on printing and office technology, and on local history. You can even find out why capital letters are called "upper case" and other letters are called "lower case."
The Marshfield Sun Printing Museum is a unique printing museum located at the north end of Front Street on Coos Bay's historic waterfront. The Marshfield Sun was a working newspaper office and print shop from 1891 to 1944 and is today essentially as it was left in 1944, with additional exhibits upstairs and on the walls.
