The Oregon Coast is one of the most scenic destinations in the country, and the charming town of Bandon provides the perfect complement to its natural beauty. With a thriving arts community, plenty of restaurants serving up delicious seafood, and stunning views of the coast everywhere you turn, Bandon has everything you need for a relaxing getaway. Your best bet for shopping in the area is Main Street, but there's something to see and do on just about every street in town to be sure to explore the entire area.
Here are a few suggestions of things to do Bandon:
-West Coast Game Park: This free walk-through wildlife safari gives visitors the chance to meet and pet hundreds of roaming wild animals.
-Bandon Marsh National Wildlife Refuge: This is a popular spot amongst locals for bird and whale watching, and is also one of the field trip sites for the annual Oregon Shorebird Festival.
-Play Golf: Bandon is home to six award-winning golf courses, most of which offer local teaching pros on-site for clinics and private lessons.
-Go Horseback Riding: Bandon's beaches are an enormously popular spot for locals to go horseback riding.
Bandon is a year-round vacation destination, and the events taking place here throughout the year are a true reflection of that. Celebrate the town's reputation as the cranberry capital of Oregon at the Annual Cranberry Festival in September, sample the work of local artists at the Dunes of the Pacific Northwest Art Show in September, or cheer on the pooches competing in the Coos Kennel Club Dog Show in August.
A vacation rental is the preferred option for those staying in Bandon. Rent a beautiful villa with beach views right out of your bedroom window, or a luxury condo near some of the most popular dining options in town.
If you wish to explore other parts of the region, there are several wonderful spots which are an easy drive from Bandon. The wide green parks and friendly locals of Eugene and the relaxing McCredie Hot Springs can both be reached within an hour by car.
