VIRTUAL TOUR OF FLORENCE
On the Siuslaw River
Old pilings abound in Old Town, as well as misty, dreamy views of the Suislaw River Bridge.
Plenty of daylight fun can be had wandering the riverfront and its abundance of features, as well as exploring the area beneath the famous bridge.
The bridge was one of the first created by famed architect Conde McCullogh on the Oregon Coast, opened in 1936. It was the first of five bridges creating Highway 101 as we know it today – the roadway that spans the length of the west coast without interruption.
McCullogh, by the way, was an OSU grad.
