Summary of Oregon Coast Attractions

Oregon Coast Aquarium

The former home of Keiko the Killer Whale, the Oregon Coast Aquarium is a great way to spend an afternoon or a day. One of our favorite exhibits is the shark tank. We cannot recommend enough a visit to the aquarium. They even have a "hands on" area where the kids can pick up and touch starfish and other sea creatures. Click here to learn more. . .

Stellar Sea Lions at Sea Lion Caves

Sea Lion CavesThe Sea Lion Caves, located just north of Florence and home of the Stellar Sea Lion, are a must see. My family has been there several times, and we never get tired of watching the antics of these large mammals. For a great Oregon Coast attraction, this is a must see. Our kids love it and so will yours. Click here to learn more. . .
