Welcome to Oregon’s Banana Belt, home to cool summer days and warm winters.

Coastal beauty abounds on this southernmost point of the Oregon Coast. Walk on beautiful beaches, hike forest trails, kayak the river or fly a kite. Here is your base camp for recreation along the Chetco River, the Redwoods and the Pacific Ocean. From Brookings to Port Orford, the highway hugs dramatic coastline lined with sea stacks and secret beaches, with the Samuel H. Boardman State Scenic Corridor beckoning for exploration. After a day of adventures, Brookings offers a happy retreat ⁠— with incredible sunsets and winter storms to cap the night.
