Incredible natural views

Great outdoor recreation

Golfers come from around the world to play the links at Bandon Dunes Resort. Enjoy hiking in the protected area of the Umpqua Dunes or go off-road for some classic sandy 4-wheeling at a dune recreation area where off-roading is permitted. You can catch the salmon of your dreams off the coast by taking a charter boat out of Charleston or Bandon.
Independent, creative Oregon spirit
Runners know the name of Coos Bay because of Olympic distance runner Steve Prefontaine, who was born and raised in Coos Bay. Pre’s spirit lives on in the annual race run in his memory. In addition to downtown antique shops with character and local farmers’ markets, Coos Bay’s classic Egyptian Theatre is restored and hosts national touring performances.
