Brookings & Harbor, OR Professional Review and Guide
"In the vicinity of Brookings, the coastal plain narrows as the Pacific Ocean indents eastward, and the Coast Range mountains quickly slope to the sea. The result is a countryside of spectacular beauty, with rocky headlands intruding on great sweeps of beach where surf and wind and geological upheaval have created coves, caves, sea stacks, and vertigo-inducing promontories northward to Port Orford. Situated on the ocean and along the north bank of the Chetco River, Brookings is the southernmost incorporated city on the Oregon coast. Harbor is an unincorporated community that stretches southward from the Chetco’s south bank.
Ocean breezes temper the summer heat, making the climate moderate, without the seasonal extremes encountered elsewhere. In January, low temperatures are in the forties, with highs in the fifties. July offers temperatures from the low fifties to mid-sixties. Warm spells in the seventies and eighties occur in both July and January. This eTrail includes information on lodging, campgrounds, RV parks, restaurants, entertainment, shopping, and outdoor activities near these coastal cities."
