This Little-Known Natural Retreat In Oregon Will Take You A Million Miles Away From It All
Located near Coos Bay, the beautiful Shore Acres State Park is made up of 5 acres of peaceful botanical gardens rimmed by a dramatic stretch of rocky coastline. There’s nowhere else quite like this magical hidden gem on the Oregon coast.
Escape the hustle and bustle of day to day life by strolling past colorful flowers, a lilly pond, and a rose garden—as well as stunning ocean cliffs, crashing waves, sandy coves, and more.
This atmospheric, beautifully-groomed garden will transport you to another time and place.
Incredible mademade structures are sprinkled in among the various plants, ponds, and vibrant flowers.
Shore Acres is located right between two other great state parks, so there are endless opportunities for camping and hiking in the area.
Part of what makes this place so remarkable is the combination of the serene, luxurious garden and the huge expanse of deep blue sea that you'll get to view from amazing cliff-top vistas.
There are numerous stunning viewpoints that are great for whale watching, storm watching, and sightseeing in general. There's even a structure overlooking the water that serves as an enclosed viewing platform, so you can watch magnificent ocean storms without getting soaked.
Even when there isn't a dramatic storm occuring, visitors can often see waves crashing into rocks and spraying 100 feet up into the air. It's a truly spectacular sight.
Once you've finished exploring the garden, you can do some sunbathing or take a walk along the shore of the nearby Simpson Beach.
The combination of the luxurious garden and the spectacular coastline make this place truly unique. It's a perfect place to getaway from it all and relax in the beauty of nature.
