On my way out of town to Golden and Silver Falls State Park, I passed by the boardwalk. Parking was a little interesting, but I was intrigued by what I could see, so I stopped. The pavilion has a really good written history of the area on placards by the railings. The view of the waterway was really good, and... More

The Boardwalk gives a wonderful view of Coos Bay. You can see different kids of boats: sailing, tugs, and fishing boats

The boardwalk has a lot to see, lots of history, information boards, old ships, great views, places to sit, access to restaurants. Its very well maintained and there's a few geocaches to be found along the way.

The boardwalk is not very long but there are benches and picnic tables that you can use. There are three covered pavilions with plaques telling the history of Coos Bay and the tug boat company. In one of the pavilions is one of the original tug boat used in the bay. The docks do have working boats as well as... More

Just fine but not a lot happening here - or maybe we missed it. A few interpretive signs, a bit of wooden "boardwalk" and great boat-watching but nothing I'd insist on doing again - except (see separate review, the seafood café)

Walking tour with local information was interesting. Too bad vandals have to deface items like this.

There was a huge sailing ship, the America, docked at the Coos Bay pier that gave tours. I couldn't go because I had the dogs but it looked like a really cool attraction. Some of the smaller boars moored there were beautiful and sleek. I enjoyed just walking the boardwalk.

Not a lot to see except the scenery, but that is well worth the time. The bay and back ground are what people come to the Oregon coast to see.
