Day 1 – Thursday December 13th – Home to Coos Bay
We’re off to Old Town Florence! This quaint fishing village is situated on the banks of the Siuslaw River. It’s beautifully restored and home to several restaurants, art galleries, specialty shops, and more. Enjoy lunch on your own, shopping, and sightseeing. Next, we’ll head over to the Cranberry Sweets factory store, where you can watch candy being made. They have developed hundreds of unique fruit candies and chocolates, relying on time-honored recipes and traditional candy making methods. More recently, they added a small in-factory bakery to increase our cookie selections. Welcome to our home for the next two nights the Mill Casino in Coos Bay… one of the finest hotels on the southern Oregon coast, and just steps away from the casino gaming floor. You’ll have some time to relax and freshen up before our dinner at Ciccarelli’s Italian Restaurant. They specialize in fresh baked bread, hand cut steaks and pasta. The Mill Casino (D)

Day 2 – Friday December 14th – Coos Bay – Local Touring
Enjoy a hearty breakfast at the hotel this morning, before our tour of the Coos Historical & Maritime Museum Interpretive Center. The Museum is meant to be a cultural gathering place, both thought provoking and fun! It offers 5000 square feet of changing exhibits exploring the unique, sometimes hidden history of the southern Oregon coast. Your afternoon is free to play in the casino and lunch is on your own. Next, we’ll be whisked away to a secluded and undisclosed beach, where we’ll be set free to frolic along the beach to find our very own Oregon blown glass floats! Everyone is guaranteed a float. Here we’ll meet our amazing local guide, Marty Giles, she will give us an informative beach talk. Then Marty will share the history and lore of the area, as we visit Charleston, Cape Arago, and Shore Acres. She’ll enlighten us with the fascinating real-life story of Louis Simpson, and the mansion and gardens he built as a Christmas present for his wife Cassie. Their tale is one of romance and tragedy, played out on this lonely wild spot overlooking the roaring Pacific. You’ll also have some time to wander Shore Acres State Park on your own… More than 300,000 vibrant lights, (almost all L.E.D.), make this the brightest and most beautiful place on the West Coast! This years’ lighted displays include: pelicans, puffins, jellyfish, cranes, life-size leaping Orca whale, life-size spouting Gray whale, butterflies, dragonfly, and more! We’ll head back to the Mill where a delicious all-you-can eat crab feed awaits… yummm! The Mill Casino (B, D)

Day 3 – Saturday December 15th – Coos Bay to Home
After breakfast, we’ll depart for home. First stop Yachats, where we’ll enjoy a scrumptious lunch at the Adobe Inn with breathtaking ocean views in our private room! Enjoy the scenery as we make our way up beautiful highway 101. Next, enjoy some free time on Newport’s Historic Bayfront full of restaurants shops and more! We make our way home this afternoon with great memories of Shore Acres and the beautiful Oregon Coast! (B, L)
