Brookings-Harbor

oregon's banana belt

Brookings and Harbor are two communities on either side of the Chetco River, united by their shared port. Found within a unique “banana belt” near the Southern Oregon border, warm weather and rugged beauty are all around.

The temperatures around Brookings are so significantly warmer than other towns nearby that meteorologists named the phenomena — the “Chetco Effect”. It can be 20°F warmer in Brookings-Harbor than nearby areas, and temperatures in the middle of winter can sit comfortably in the mid-60’s. Because of this favorable weather local parks and gardens abound with seasonal azaleas and rhododendrons. The northernmost Redwood groves make their home here and the area is also known as the Easter Lily capital of the world. A short drive to the north of Brookings while traveling on Highway 101 brings you to the Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor, a 12-mile odyssey of one stunning view after another with beaches and hiking trails to explore.
