Late afternoon/early evening arrive at your hotel and get settled

Head over to 7 Devils Brewing Company’s Tap Roomfor a hand-crafted brew or local cranberry cider and dinner. If you are lucky, there will be some live music on the patio! Or visit 7 Devil’s newest restaurant, the 7 Devils Waterfront Alehouse, with an upscale menu and spectacular views of the bay.

DAY 2 of Museums and Tours in Oregon

Breakfast at one of our many breakfast restaurants.

Visit the Coos History Museumthe perfect stop to begin your South Coast AdventureExplore the exhibits that tell the history of the area, its people, its industries, and its way of life.

There are plenty of nearby lunch options in downtown Coos Bay.

Begin your afternoon at theCoos Art Museum. Take a tour of the main exhibit – which changes seasonally – as well as of the Prefontaine Gallery dedicated to local running legend, Steve Prefontaine. Housed in a 1936 art deco building the Coos Art Museum features seven galleries with up to 24 changing exhibitions annually.

It’s time for ATVing in the Dunes! Take the Follow Me Tour(2 hours) with one of the top adventure providers in the Dunes! Spinreel ATV & Dune Buggy takes the guess work out of your visit to the dunes. You drive and follow their experienced guide through the only sand dunes that exist in a temporal rain forest, on this riding experience. (Timing on this is dependent on seasonal timing of Spinreel’s Follow Me Tour.)

Return to your hotel for freshening up, then head to dinner at one of our locals’ favorites.

Depending on the season, there are several options for a night out on the town! The Liberty Theatremay have a theatrical production running, The Historic Egyptian Theatremay have a classic movie, or try your luck at The Mill Casino or Three Rivers Casino.

 DAY 3 of Parks in Oregon

After breakfast, we recommend you Take a Hike! Literally! Spend time outdoors visiting the jewels of our coast – the beaches and state parks along Cape Arago Hwy

Start with a walk along Bastendorff Beach, a mile-long stretch of beach between the jetty and a cove that is accessible when the tides are out. BE WAVE AWARE!This part of the coast is prone to sneaker waves, so never turn your back on the ocean.

Sunset Bay State Parkis next on the drive along Cape Arago Loop. This cove is perfect for a short beach walk, and in low tide, tide pooling! But, like its name suggests, it is perfect for watching those beautiful sunsets over the Pacific Ocean.

Stop at Shore Acres State Parkfor the amazing views from the cliffside as well as a stroll through the gardens. There is a hidden beach below the cliffs and a well-marked path guides you there. A hiking trail takes you north past the estate’s tennis courts over the cliffs to views of the Cape Arago Lighthouse.

Simpson Overlookis the next stop with views of Shell Island where hundreds of seals and sea lions lounge on the rocks. Bring binoculars for a spectacular view. You can hear them barking even before you get out of your vehicle.

Cape Arago State Parkis at the end of the road and offers spectacular views of the Pacific and several trails to explore.

Head back to Charleston for a quick bite to eat on locally caught fresh seafood.

Departing Charleston, head south again on Cape Arago Highway, but turn onto 7 Devils Road! Drive up 7 Devils Road to South Slough Estuaryfor a hike on any of the 11 trails through coastal forests.

Depart Oregon’s Adventure Coast with fond memories.
