Why it’s great: There are Oregon coastal towns like Seaside where boisterous children beg for elephant ears and more quarters for the arcade, and then there are the working-class coastal towns like Florence with roadside motels, beautiful bridges, and remnants of a milling past. Hint of blue collar maybe, but Florence isn’t without sightseeing opportunity from the ocean, Siuslaw River, the Sea Lion Caves, or sand dunes.
One of the only ways to access the miles and miles of dunes near Florence is by dune buggy. You'll gain exclusive access to miles of nature, sands, and various wildlife areas that are otherwise inaccessible.
One thing you have to do: Sand dunes by way of dune buggy, duh.
