Description
Between Florence and the ocean lies an extensive area of sand dunes that sometimes reach a height of 300 feet. A good view of the area is from the observation deck in nearby Harbor Vista County Park; phone (541) 997-5987.
Other natural highlights include the freshwater lakes, sand dunes and beach that constitute Jessie M. Honeyman Memorial State Park just south of the town.
A scenic section of US 101 bisects Florence; several attractions can be seen along its route. Six miles north on US 101 is Darlingtonia State Natural Site, an 18-acre sphagnum bog noted for cobra lilies; self-guiding walkways provide access to the bog.
Heceta Head Lighthouse State Scenic Viewpoint, 13 miles north on US 101, provides access to the lighthouse by way of a short trail. The lighthouse, which houses Oregon's most powerful beacon, overlooks scenic bluffs and is popular with photographers; phone (541) 547-3416 for tour information.
