|Florence is a scenic seaside community located at the confluence of the Siuslaw River and the Pacific Ocean. Conveniently located along the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway (Highway 101), only one hour west of Eugene and boasting its own airport in town, Florence is an easy and beautiful coastal destination.|
Stay overnight in Florence or beachfront off Highway 101, soaking up the slower pace and enjoying the fresh ocean air. Historic Old Town Florence is a charming 1900s fishing village built beside the Siuslaw River. Its original port and marina still bustles with boats and seafaring vessels.
|From the Old Town Gazebo on the riverbank, gaze down the river to the beautiful Siuslaw River Bridge, which replaced ferry service in 1936. Amble along the timber boardwalk overlooking the docks, watch fishing boats returning with the day's catch and dockside crabbers hauling up their nets, or cast out a line yourself. Order a bowl of clam chowder and some local seafood at one of the many Historic Old Town Florence restaurants. |
Two museums anchor Florence's historic district: the Siuslaw Pioneer Museum and the Fly Fishing Museum. Bay Street is lined with Victorian-style storefronts selling saltwater taffy, ice cream and souvenirs.
|Florence is rich with outdoor pursuits. Beaches, parks, hiking trails, lakes and rivers are interwoven throughout the coastal community. Get outdoors on a coastal golf course, explore the world's first ever sandboard park, or take a guided dune buggy ride. |
Built in 2004 by the Confederated Tribes of the Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians, the Three Rivers Casino is a luxurious entertainment and gaming destination.
