Oregon Coastline

Florence, Oregon

With isolated beaches, charming seaside towns and dramatic cliffs, the Oregon Coast demands exploration. Descend into Sea Lion Caves -- America’s largest sea cave and the year-round home of the Steller sea lion -- for an afternoon of discovery. Later, drive up the rugged coastline to tour the tallest lighthouse in the state -- Yaquina Head Lighthouse. End the day at the “Kite Capital of the World,” Lincoln City, where colorful kites play along the city’s 7 miles of shoreline.
