North Bend has a population of about 10,000 and is located on Coos Bay along the south coast. Approaching the city from the north, you drive over the mile long historic Conde McCullough bridge which offers great views.

There is a Visitors Information Center on the west side of the highway, just south of the bridge.  Stop in and they can give you lots of information about things to do in town!

Here are some ideas:

--  North Bend is home to the longest-running community theatre in Oregon, the Little Theatre on the Bay. Events and plays are presented year round, with special Halloween and Christmas events.

--  Just north of the bridge, on the west side of 101, is the lovely David DeWett Veterans Memorial. Located directly on the edge of the bay, this is worth a stop to remember those brave soldiers who died in service to our country.

--  You can try your luck at the Mill Casino, which offers slots, poker, blackjack and other table games. There is a full service hotel here as well as a deluxe RV park with a great water view.

--  One of the oldest local historical museums in Oregon, the Coos County Historical Museum has been open for over 100 years. It has many interesting displays and exhibits about life in early Coos county. It's located just south of the bridge, on the west side of 101. An authentic steam donkey is located in front. 

--  Other activities include antique shopping, art galleries or visiting one of the area's excellent restaurants. Enjoy your time in North Bend!
