Quick Weekend Getaways: Coos Bay & Bandon

Let's be honest, not many people say 'hey, I'm going to take a mini vacation to Coos Bay.' No offense to anybody who lives there, but it doesn't scream vacation for too many. However, add a mix of a coastal drive, some old town antique shopping, and a day in Bandon and you'll be happy you got away for the weekend! Plus, when you have some friends who know the in's and out's of this place...
things get crazy and cool. Yes, both of them all at once.

Ben is a state trooper, so let's just say we got the true in's and out's, all the dirt, and of course, all the best of this little town from Meg! With the views from CB and Bandon, some great food at the golf course, and a wonderful stay at a cute B& can't resist a weekend getaway to
the Southern Oregon coast! Check out how you can get away for the weekend to a place you most likely would not have decided to travel to otherwise (unless you're a golfer, of course).
This little town just may surprise you!

I acted 5 years old and couldn't get over the name of these chocolates...'pokies in the dark'
I'm not sorry I acted immature with this facial expression. It was great.

cheddar cheese fudge....our faces clearly state our thought.

Thanks to Meg & Ben for the insider's tour of Coos Bay, some great laughs, and incredibly late nights.
Looking forward to our next trip down to visit!
Love to you both!
