Destination guide

Riding the Oregon Coast Highway through North Bend

With the sloshing waters of Coos Bay and the world-class sand hills, sparkling beaches, and rolling surf of the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area right on the doorstep, it's hardly a surprise that so many travelers opt to linger in little North Bend for a couple of days as they make their way up the Coast Highway. From sport fishing to local lumber history tours, walks over the wonderful Conde McCullough Memorial Bridge to craft beer tasting sessions, there's plenty to be getting up to when you're not kicking back in those cozy North Bend vacation rentals.

Things to do

North Bend's got something for all

Don't worry if you've had enough of beachcombing along the Pacific seaboard, North Bend has oodles more up its sleeve than that. Sightseers should be sure to make a detour to see the wonderful Conde McCullough Memorial Bridge _ one of the most iconic on the Oregon Coast Highway. Others will love the exhibits at the Coos History Museum, housed in old shipping sheds, and chronicling the tales of native Indians and American seafarers who've passed this way. And if you're feeling lucky? Hit the Mill Casino for some chip-slapping poker showdowns.

Activities

Enjoy the wash of the Pacific in North Bend

This close to the Pacific, it's hard not to be charmed by the natural side of Oregon. Drive north along the Coast Highway and you'll soon reach one of the most coveted seaside parks in the state, where long stretches of sandy beachfront and undulating dunes make for the perfect experience of the ocean. Between lazy sunbathing sessions, sports fishing excursions, horseback journeys, camping trips, and travel photography lessons, you're sure to find an activity that tickles your fancy.

Weather

Enjoy North Bend when the sun is shining

North Bend's attractions _ the beaches, the dunes, the pretty reaches of Coos Bay _ are all at their best when the sun's shining. That's probably the reason why most travelers to these parts search for North Bend vacation rentals between May and August. Visiting then means you're much less likely to be doused in the notorious Pacific Northwest rains, and should get to enjoy temperatures that are regularly in the mid-60s.

Natural features

North Bend offers plenty of natural beauty

North Bend hides just away from the Pacific coast in the inlet of Coos Bay. Water surrounds the town on three sides, offering the perfect environment for launching whale watching excursions and boating trips out over the ocean swells. The most famous natural reserve in the region is surely the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, which is accessible on the Coast Highway from all North Bend vacation rentals. There, you'll discover sea bird habitats and undulating sand dunes, beautiful beachfronts and sunset shows that'll keep you clicking on the camera.
