13 Things to Do Along the Central Oregon Coast

central oregon coastThe Central Oregon Coast consists of the 75 mile coastline from Florence to Lincoln City. This section of the coast has some of the famous Oregon Coast landmarks you’ve likely seen on Pinterest, such as, the Devil’s Punchbowl and Thor’s Well.

All 13 attractions can be done over two days. This gives you enough time to fully experience everything and not feel like you’re rushing. So, go grab a buddy (or you can go solo,which is what I did), turn up the radio and hit the road! 

1. See the Sea Lions
Tip: Don’t pay to see the sea lion in the caves, drive about 1/2 a mile feet north of the caves (to the pull out just north of mile marker 179), pull over and look over the edge of the cliffs. You’ll see way more sea lions than in the caves and it’s free!
