When you think of the beach life in the United States, you could be forgiven for thinking first of places like Florida or Southern California.
But you would be missing out if you didn’t add the Oregon Coast to your bucket list of seaside destinations to see at least once in your lifetime. Here, you will find some of the most unbelievably beautiful coastal scenery the world has to offer. Think rocky shores lined with proud pines and dotted with dramatically monolithic islets just offshore like something out of a fairytale.
Plotting out a proper trip to Coastal Oregon means centering your trajectory along Highway 101 and all the quaint little seaside towns it winds its way through. You will be finding campgrounds galore where you can either pitch your tent or park your RV a stone’s throw from the crashing waves of the Pacific. Towns like Bandon have historic districts that will charm you as it takes you back in time. Gold Beach seems to host stony giants laying sentinels in the churning waters just beyond the sands. Be sure to prepare for your Instagram moment at Natural Bridges, one of the most photogenic pieces of natural oceanfront in the world. And seek out the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area for stretches of rolling sand dunes that go for miles and miles.
