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.


Here are just a few attractions that you need to check out on your visit to the Oregon Coast:


  • Jerry's Rogue River Mailboat Rides Gold Beach
  • Far West ATV & Dune Buggy Rentals Between Reedsport & North Bend
  • Cleowox Lake Kayak and Paddle Boat Rentals + Public Swimming and Picnicing Area South of Florence
  • Putt n' Bat Miniature Gold and Batting Cages Lincoln City
  • Ripley's Believe It or Not and The Wax Works Meuseum Newport



A MUST! If you can make it to Newport, YOU HAVE to go check out the Rogue Brewery. Great Beer, but you'd better not be expecting any Coors Light or Domestics. Along with the brewery though, go check out a few more of these nightlife locations:
