Coos Bay's downtown is relatively small, and therefore a nice and easy stroll. It is picturesque. The boardwalk is a pretty place to go, and not very long. There are some displays of boats and ships, so kids might enjoy it as well.

I am not sure why I ♥♡♥♡♥ Coos Bay, but I do. It seems so very authentic and says Welcome To Oregon like no other city does.

The Coos Bay boardwalk is a great place to go for a walk along the bay or to simply sit and relax. It's very family friendly and enjoyable way to take a short walk.

The path along the bay is both boardwalk and pavement so it is easy walking/running/biking. It dead ends at the railroad bridge and the round trip is about 25-35 minutes walking. There are usually birds to watch. You may even see someone catch a fish!

We recently stayed in Coos bay due to a break down of one of our Harleys! We were told of the Fisherman's Seafood Market on the boardwalk in Coos Bay. The very best clam chowder in a sourdough bowl we have EVER had. During our 4 days stay we went back numerous times. The halibut & chips were great too.... More

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 It was a nice walk from our hotel and we read the signs here, but most were 20+ years outdated.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.
