Taft and Siletz Bay Wonders, Central Oregon Coast
Lincoln City, Oregon Coast Virtual Tour, Inland 101, Neskowin, Corridor of Mystery
Every 4th of July, Taft is the center of attention on the coast, with an enormous fireworks display going on down the beach a ways. During the day, as everyone stakes out their spot on the beach, this area is a hub of activity. Two nearby bars, The Pines and Snug Harbor, are usually packed with tourists in one heck of a party mood. This is some of the best fun you can have on Independence Day anywhere.
At Siletz Bay Park, there is a small parking lot - and another viewing area next to it. Both overlook the Siletz Bay. Information kiosks and other facilities are found here, and just a short walk away sits the big pier jutting out into the bay.
At night, the bay comes alive with some beautifully surreal colors.
