Coos Bay & North Bend, OR Professional Review and Guide
"Coos Bay and North Bend share a common boundary and, in places, are impossible to distinguish, creating one metropolitan area—the largest on the Oregon coast. Together with Charleston, they compose what has come to be known as “Oregon’s Bay Area.” Ironically, though, the area’s greatest asset and most obvious feature is often ignored by visitors and residents alike—the bay itself. It’s also a sprawling estuary, rich in marine wildlife, and a great place to enjoy a variety of water sports and activities.
The bay area is also home to the Oregon coast’s first casino, owned and operated by the Coquille Tribe. Even nongamblers will want to check out The Mill Casino, on U.S. 101 in North Bend, for its fine food at great prices, outstanding bay view, and bigname entertainment. This eTrail includes information on lodging, campgrounds, RV parks, restaurants, entertainment, shopping, and outdoor activities near these coastal cities."
