Brookings is located on the most southern piece of Oregon's coastline, just six miles from California. While driving just south of the city you will find yourself on a bridge over the Chetco River. From here you will have a terrific view of Brookings Harbor. If you are interested in doing some fishing, Brookings will be your favorite place to visit on the southern Oregon coast.
Scenic landscape is easy to find in Brookings, which also has a number of parks. If you want the best of both worlds, visit Harris Beach State Park to find beautiful beaches with a perfect mixture of rocky terrain and soft sand. There is also the Clifford Kamph Memorial Park that offers a pleasant walk that will be perfect for all the family photos. Finally, don't forget how close California is; Redwood forests with tree trunks the size of your car are nearby. Ask the local visitors center where the best places are to explore the old growth. They will love to help you.
