Oregon’s Coastal Culture

When you visit a region you naturally do want to spend some time in the outdoors, sampling all that the area has to offer, but unless you’re strictly into the outdoors, you’re also going to want to spend some time engaging in the culture of the region. Fortunately, when you’re staying at the Bay Point Landing Luxury RV Resort, Oregon’s coastal culture lies at your doorstep.

Oregon’s Coastal Culture at Coos Bay

Naturally, we’re inclined to take a good hard look at the coastal culture in Coos. You can find some great things on this adventurous coast. The Coos History Museum, for instance, can really stimulate your curiosity. It has over 250,000 photographs and 50,000 artifacts.

You can find yourself enraptured as you dig deeply into the expansive and culturally rich Native American history and culture, as well as examining the mining and logging traditions that helped shaped this area. If you don’t have a lot of time you can visit the Oregon Coast Historical Railway Museum. It features a Baldwin steam locomotive from 1922. This open-air museum also gives you a chance to check out some other railroad and logging equipment.

Artistic Traditions

So perhaps you’re artistically inclined rather than being interested in the history of the region. That’s all fine, because we’ve got you covered there as well. You can visit the Coos Art Museum which hosts as many as 24 changing exhibitions, which means that no matter how many times you visit, there’s always something new. You could also visit the Egyptian Theatre, which features Egyptian Revival décor. This is an amazing space and is frequently open for events, music, and movies.

Oregon Dunes

The great thing about living, or visiting, the Pacific Northwest is that we usually don’t get all that pesky snow and cold weather much of the U.S. seems to insist on having. So, when you’re staying at Bay Point Landing Luxury RV Resort you can avoid bringing tons of cold weather clothing and feeling like you’ll be trapped inside with nothing to do. Instead, you can go hiking at Oregon Dunes.

Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area

The Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area is one of the largest expanses of temperate coastal sand dunes in the world. The science of the dunes is quite interesting if that’s really your thing, but it is certainly a bit dense of a subject to discuss here. Rather, let’s focus on the important part, how much you can enjoy exploring them.

What you’ll see

Near the beach you’ll find European Beach grass on some of the foredunes. As you move inland you might find hummocks of sand and vegetation that are surrounded by water (especially in the winter). You might even find some tree islands. These are small isolated remnants of older coastal forests.
