One Day in Florence, Oregon

This sample itinerary is designed for the "day tripper." It highlights the most popular, iconic and easily accessible attractions around Florence. 

The coastal town of Florence, and the section of scenic Highway 101 from Dunes City to Cape Perpetua, is a "must see" on any Oregon itinerary. Florence and the Oregon Coast is approximately one hour west of Eugene on Highway 126.

Morning 

Oregon Coast Sand Dunes & Beaches

Arrive early to enjoy plenty of time on the beach or the golf course. Just south of Florence is the South Jetty and the Siltcoos National Recreation Area, offering dunes and beach access. Take a dune buggy ride or try out the cool sport of sandboarding (like snowboarding but on sand). Or just enjoy beach combing. Several golf courses are tucked in between the dunes and pine forests for some magnificent coastal play.
