Coos Bay - North Bend, OR is located on the Pacific Coast of Oregon on a well-protected bay with an active commercial port for lumber and fishing boats. Just to the north is Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. To the west is the Village of Charleston known for crabbing and oysters and spectacular views of rugged seascape, towering storm waves, and glimpses of migrating whales from December through June. Just South on the coast is Shore Acres State Park - home to extensive luxurious gardens with flowers and plants from around the world.
While in the area we enjoyed some surprisingly memorable meals, from BBQ to German and Vinny's "smoking good" burgers on their amazing homemade bagels.
