Where I stayed
I hit Port Orford first, which supposedly had a lighthouse, but I couldn't find it and there wasn't much around to point you out. My main stop was Battle Rock, which had historic significance with the first settlers in the area.
After spending time there, I headed north again, stopping in Cape Blanco, which was a ways off the 101, but I intended to check out the lighthouse, which was completely shut off. Seasonal tours start in late Spring for most lighthouses, apparently.
The next major stop was Face Rock in Bandon. Some massive rocks along the beach and cliffs that really show the difference between the Oregon Coast and many other coastlines along the Pacific.
Bandon had a great Old Town section, but I didn't want to go into any of the cute little shops with a water-filled boot so I headed up towards Coos Bay where I had a look at Charleston briefly.
