My husband walked around and looked at all the displays. I sat in the picnic area and relaxed. There's apparently a restaurant down below the boardwalk where you can get seafood and then eat it on the boardwalk. They ought to have food carts here...or at least an ice cream stand. :-)

Right on 101 and in the center of downtown Coos Bay is this pleasant attraction-the boardwalk! Besides strolling along the riverside and piers, the most interesting feature is the roofed-in retired tugboat. Accessible either by stairs or a ramp for wheelchairs, this up-and-close local history lesson is fascinating. For a little peace of mind and quiet, this site is well-worth... More

The Coos Bay Boardwalk is a great little attraction. It's a wonderful place to stop and stretch your legs when traveling. Learn about some of the local history and see boats in the bay.

Learn a bit of local history, a great place to stretch your legs, explore the tug boat, a walk down to the dock area gets you in touch with lots of local boat owners who are happy to share their stories. We enjoyed the experience and would recommend a stop if the weather is nice.

Not too large, and not full of tourists which is nice. Right in the middle of town almost! Quick walk to anywhere. Nice historical facts listed around, neat boats here and there and places for sitting and resting.

The shops are nice. We took a tour of the House of Myrtle Wood. It was interesting how the items are made. The fudge we got free with our purchase and the fudge is horrible!! No wonder it was free!

This is a nice walk with a look at the local boats and the Coast Guard facility. Also good for bird watching.

The waterfront in Coos Bay tells the whole story of the boom town it once was and promises to be once again, thanks to the insightful and smart thinkers in this community. The beautiful architecture of their visitors center, right in the middle of the boardwalk, with lots of free parking and waterfront seating and helpful displays makes one believe... More

This is a great place to take a walk, walk your dog, or sit and relax by the water. We took our sack lunches and just sat in the sun and watching the world go by. It was a nice way to meet new friends, which we did!

Nice boardwalk as it was, but near some pretty dilapidated areas. The floating restaurant ther is a little hard to find, but was clean. We passed it and searched for a larger place.
