Couples Getaway - F - Florence

There's a beautiful little spot in Oregon called Florence. There you'll find beautiful evergreen forests, sparkling lakes, towering dunes, and a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean.



With 10 miles of uninterrupted beaches, quaint local shopping, scrumptious dining, and fun activities, there's no shortage of things to do with your significant other.

One of my most favorite attractions is the Sea Lion Caves. I'm amazed at how many sea lions gather there. The sounds they make are quite entertaining, and it makes me laugh to watch them play in the water.

Anorher fun attraction is The Oregon Dunes, where you can rent a dune buggy, or go out on a tour.

Florence is where you'll want to spend a couple days to take everything in, like Old Town, The Heceta Lighthouse, or a leisurely hike to the top of Cape Perpetua.

When you've had your fill of activities, don't forget to do some shopping, and take a peaceful evening stroll at sunset. Florence is a place for tranquility, relaxation and fun, and indeed a memorable couples getaway.

All throughout April I'll be posting about Couple Getaways as part of the A-Z Challenge. I hope you'll stop by for the next destination! No passport necessary ;)
