Stopped at the boardwalk but not much to really view. Has a little statue and some plaques but didn't even bother to see due to the windy weather.

This is not a huge Boardwalk but it does offer informational signs about the history of the logging industry in the area which is still going strong. They have a tugboat on display and signs telling the story of the boat, usage and engine details. An additional display tells about all the various trees in the area. There is a... More

All looks fine until you walk along the bay path. It comes to an end with a sign warning you not to trespass on the railroad. Why not have a sign at the start to warn folk it is not a round trip!

I liked being near the river. I didn't like the fact that you can't get off the boardwalk at the end. You have to return to the middle of the boardwalk to exit it.

We thought there were shops or something more down here than just a boardwalk. It was a nice walk from our hotel and we read the signs here, but most were 20+ years outdated. Overall, if you are just looking for a walk or a look at the view it's OK but otherwise not really worth it.

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.
