If you use the search function at the top of the page, and click on advanced search, use "Florence" as a keyword, and select "Oregon" for the search parameter, you will see several threads which include Florence info. You might get more responses to this on the general Oregon forum, which gets more traffic, than the Eugene one.

Florence is a great town although kind of boring many times. There really isn't a "bad" part of town, just more expensive or less expensive. Certainly not like a larger city anyway. If you find a bad part of town, it's usually more like a bad family rather than a bad neighborhood.
Very few skeeters around here but the no-see-ums are deadly a couple of times a year.
There is now only one school in Florence but it's almost brand new and from what I understand, it's a good school. No major complaints from anyone I know so far.
I can't, or should I say I won't recommend a dentist. If you ask me, every dentist in this town is either a psycho or they think they are the only game in town. I find it's easier and cheaper to take the drive to Eugene to find a dentist but that's just me. I'm a little jaded on the local dentists. Sorry.
Just sayin'

Default Just to echo Steve's thoughts

DHicks000,
If you have already visited the Florence area and like it, then by all means give it a try. If you have not, you may want to consider a trip here to see how it would be to "live" on the coast day after day and not just come for a quick vaca. It's soul satisfying for me to visit the ocean--- but you must be able to handle the overcast and lack of sunshine most days. Only my opinion. Good Luck.
PS-Oregon IS beautiful.
