Florence isn't the typical beach town where you can expect to sit on the sand with a tropical drink. Instead, visitors should plan to get active and see some of the incredible local sights.
- Sea Lion Caves: This popular attraction is exactly what it says on the tin: a massive ocean cave that's something of a hot spot for the local sea lion population.
- Sand Dunes: The Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area boasts some of the most impressive sand dunes in North America and attracts all kinds of thrill-seekers, from sand boarders to ATV riders.
- Heceta Head Lighthouse: Arguably one of Oregon's most beautiful historic lighthouses, the view from this high point is breathtaking.
