About Florence

Florence is the perfect paradise for recreation and relaxation. With a population of just over 62,000, this small and quaint old town is ideal for those looking for a quiet getaway, far from the hustle and bustle of everyday living.

Here, you’ll discover gorgeous beaches and a tiny downtown area to explore if you wish. There are also forests aplenty, surrounded by gorgeous lakes and rivers which make this destination a scenic wonder.

If you're a fan of seafood, you can't go far wrong by visiting Florence. Most restaurants offer an array of sea foods pulled in fresh from the surrounding Pacific Ocean. There are also a great deal of fine wines and craft beers within the local area, which have been recognized as some of the best in the world and are definitely worth a taste. 

What to do

Due to the location of Florence, many tourists may decide to camp for a few nights to truly get a feel for the outdoors and nature, but this wouldn't be advised for the faint-hearted! Fishing is also another popular activity due to being within close proximity of the sea and surrounding rivers and lakes.

If you're not afraid of heights, one popular option would be to take a helicopter trip over the gorgeous Oregon coast, to discover this spectacular location from new heights. However, if you'd prefer to say on the ground, you may decide on taking a visit to Sea Lion Caves where you can catch a glimpse of these inspiring creatures in their natural habitat.

If you're a fan of the arts, it’s worth taking a trip to the Florence Events Center, where you'll find a whole host of performances and entertainment shows.
