Oregon Lighthouses

There’s just something about lighthouses. They manage to be both historic, practical, and romantic all at once. Even better? Many of them are located not too far from where you’re planning on staying. So, you could pack a picnic and visit some of the lighthouses, or you could just head on out and plan to have something to eat and drink at any of the great establishments you’ll find in the area.

There are a few nearby ones that you can check out. The first is the Cape Arago Lighthouse located in Charleston. It was first illuminated in 1934 and has quite the fog horn. Unfortunately, this is one you’ll only be able to see from a distance as it is located on an island and is not accessible to the public.

Another option is the Coquille River Lighthouse in Bandon, just about 20 miles south of Coos Bay. It was built in 1896 and decommissioned in 1939. It was restored in 1979 and tours are available. Another option that’s not too far away is the Umpqua River Lighthouse in Winchester Bay. It was built in 1894 and offers tours as well.

Located 24 miles away from Coos Bay you’ll be able to enjoy a long leisurely drive through some beautiful countryside to get to the Golden and Silver Falls State Natural Area. This hidden gem is in the dense coastal forests of the state.

It can be a little hard to find, but GPS and a map will get you there. Once there you’ll see a small parking and picnic area on the banks of the Glenn and Silver Creeks in a picturesque setting of maple, alder and Oregon myrtle trees.

Scenic Canyons

Once you’ve arrived you can enjoy a picnic and then hike through the scenic canyons in order to get to the amazing waterfalls that drop 100 feet to moss covered boulders. If this is your kind of thing, then you should consider hiking the 1.4 miles to the top of Golden Falls to see the amazing forest and falls from a bird’s eye view.
