Coos Bay is the largest city on the Oregon Coast with a current population of 15,470. It is named for one of the area’s Native American tribes and has two Indian meanings – lake, and place of pines, both very fitting for the area. Today, you’ll find intriguing restaurants, gourmet coffee houses, antique shops, gift shops and Coos Art Museum, the third oldest art museum in Oregon. The downtown area is adjacent to the Coos Bay Boardwalk where locals and visitors alike can enjoy the waterfront views.

Named to reflect its geographic location as it is situated on the north bend of the bay. North Bend proudly boasts Oregon Coast’s only airport, largest enclosed shopping mall, Pony Village Mall, and the historic MuCullough Bridge. You’ll also find Horsfall Beach and the North Spit, named as one of Sunset Magazine’s top ten beach strolls in the western region, and the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, home of towering 500 foot sand dunes and some of the most amazing ATV and off-roading opportunities.

Charleston is located just inside the entrance to the bay, only eight miles south of Coos Bay and North Bend. It is a distinctive fishing village located near some of the finest recreation and most beautiful scenery in the Northwest. It is Oregon’s Adventure Coast’s gateway to outstanding ocean beaches, state parks, and stunning untouched scenery. Follow Cape Arago Highway and you’ll hit a trifecta of beauty in Sunset Bay State Park, Shore Acres State Park and Cape Arago State Park. You’ll also find world class surfing and scuba diving opportunities along with hiking and biking trails suited to all levels.
