From historic Old Town and the Sea Lion Caves, to sand dunes and the beach, we can help you enjoy your stay in Florence, no matter how long it lasts! Florence is located on Oregon's central coast about 60 miles west of Eugene and 160 miles south of Portland (see Maps of the Area with driving directions). The area is a jewel of the Pacific Northwest, with 27 scenic lakes inland giving way to sandy beaches along the oceanfront.
Florence is a small community with a big heart. Among many activities to chose from are the Rhododendron Festival May 21-23, Chowder Blues and Brews October 8 - 10, and Christmas in Old Town. The combination of trees and water, sun and clouds, fine dining and friendly people make the area a recreation paradise. Other attractions include the Oregon Dunes and Siltcoos National Recreation areas and the Heceta Head Light House and the Oregon Coast Aquarium. From hiking and water sports, to horse back riding and world class fishing, you will discover an area you will enjoy living in or you will return to again and again!
