Ready to recharge? This is the perfect time to escape to the Oregon Coast and breath the fresh air. Here are a few places for an unforgettable vacation in Florence, Oregon — Oregon's "Coastal Playground".
Note: make sure to plan ahead and check current guidelines before you head out on your getaway.
Driftwood Shores Resort
The best escape is one with a view. Driftwood Shores Resort offers beachfront access and excellent sunset views. It's just close enough to the center of Florence for convenience, but far enough away to feel like a real retreat.
The Surfside Restaurant & Lounge is open for takeout so you can still enjoy a delicious meal in the privacy of your room. Or, take your dinner to the beach for a truly romantic dining experience as the sun sets over the Pacific.
Best Western Pier Point Inn
The Pier Point Inn has the quality you expect from the Best Western brand set against the stunning views of the Siuslaw River and Historic Old Town Florence. When you need to see a familiar place from a new perspective, Pier Point is the way to go. The pool is open by reservation and complimentary continental breakfasts are available. The location makes it easy to swing into the heart of town for your favorite seafood and a stroll on the docks.
Heceta Head Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast
Heceta Head Lighthouse B&B is easily one of the most impressive lodging options on the Oregon Coast. Not only is the view of the beach and historic lighthouse breathtaking, but you can expect to be treated like royalty. Even with pandemic restrictions they are finding creative ways to still serve their complimentary welcome wine and cheese, their famous multi-course breakfast (modified for pandemic protocols) and all the luxuries you never knew you needed in your life.
After a day of reading on the porch, take a hike on the nearby trails or wander down to the beach to put your toes in the ocean. Relax and soak in the ultimate self-care.
River House Inn
River House Inn sits in the ideal location on Bay Street in Historic Old Town Florence. Here you're right on the stunning Siuslaw River, where you can enjoy views of the dunes in the distance and boats passing under the Siuslaw Bridge before walking to the docks for fresh seafood. The romance package at River House Inn is a popular option for couples who need a getaway.
There are plenty of nearby open restaurants in Historic Old Town Florence to choose from. Reservations are recommended at all restaurants in Florence. Sit outside at sidewalk tables or on the balconies over the river.
