Gateway to Oregon’s Adventure Coast

Coos Bay, North Bend and Charleston make up a diverse area of historic charm, natural beauty and outdoor adventure known as Oregon’s Adventure Coast. Each town displays its own unique independence while still being woven into a strong regional community on Oregon’s South Coast.

The largest deep-draft port between San Francisco and the Puget Sound in Washington State, Coos Bay, along with neighboring North Bend, anchors the Southern Coast as a highly active harbor and thriving city. Coos Bay is artistic and deeply shaped by the people who call it home. The historic bayside Marshfield District is home to a multitude of historic buildings, theaters, shops, restaurants, galleries, and parks.

Yet from the city of Coos Bay it’s just a short trip to the untamed expanses of the Southern Oregon Coastal Wilderness. Adventures in the Oregon Dunes, long stretches of sandy beach, and forested hikes are all nearby. Close access to rivers, lakes, Coos Bay, and the Pacific Ocean makes water sport and exploration easy. And, like the rest of this beautiful region, the Cape Arago Highway coastal drive rewards those who stop a while and explore off the beaten path.
