Get around

U.S. Highway 101 runs along the Oregon Coast from Astoria in the north to Brookings in the south. The highway offers views of Pacific Ocean, making it one of the most scenic drives in the country, and runs through the heart of many coastal cities. However, from Florence to Bandon, the highway is slightly inland because of the vast Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.

The highway often serves as the main drag in most cities on the coast. Many businesses have built along 101 in coastal cities in an effort to attract tourists passing by. During the summer season, make sure you are not in a big hurry. It was recently named No. 1 for tourist congestion, beating out the popular Cape Cod.

The highway is connected to Interstate 5 by many highways that run along rivers, such as the Umpqua (Highway 38). Typically it takes one to two hours to reach I-5 from the coast.

The only commercial airport on the coast lies in North Bend. The airport is serviced with daily flights to and from Portland International Airport via Horizon Air.

Greyhound no longer serves the coast, but many towns are serviced by local bus lines such as Porter Stage Coach.
