Yes, Tiffela is right. The elks and the elk viewing area in Reedsport are something to see.
Also, skakeboard parks in Reedsport and Coos Bay (I'm not sure if this new one is completely finished yet tho).
Skate/Surf Shop along the 101, old town Coos Bay.
Also, Frisbee/Disc Golf in North Bend.
But, for sure if you have boys, rent them some ATVs and explore the Dunes.
Have a fun trip!

Thank you all for the info. So, the skatepark along the 101 is close to Coos Bay?
We'd also love to explore the dunes. Thank again.

Default Scenery & Towns

I drive the Oregon Coast on marketing trips a lot. There are little towns every half hour. From Florence (and yes be sure and visit Bay Front, Old Town) you get away from the coast a bit (can't see it), but it's a great drive. Bandon is probably the next town to spend some time. Has a "Old Town" with shops, great little fish and chip places, and a wonderful drive (take Beach Loop) along the ocean....which is beachy, big rocks (called seastacks) and very accessable. Drive down to the jetty and you can walk out it...your kids would love that.

Between Bandon and Port Orford (about a half hour drive) and just north of Port Orford is the Cape Blanco turn off. A must see lighthouse and buildings. Five miles down the road. April thru Sept you can go up in the lighthouse. The cliffs are breathtaking, and primative so no guard rails so be careful. On the right side of the lighthouse is a trail down to the beach where there are lots of tidepools. On the left side of the lighthouse and back the road a bit is a state park campground and you can drive down to the beach....even on the beach if you choose. Fun.
