And Dayle said he would modify the map, and use River House Motel as primary.Took a little ride up the beach today to Florence. 46 degrees all the way.. Took a look at the local Motels, and figured a good one would be the River House, which is right on the river on the west end of old town. Restaurant next door, off street parking, walk about for to eight blocks will put you in the tourist area and old waterfront. Prices are reasonable. And there is another one right on the main drag called Old Town. Both are decent places. For anyone wanting to camp, there are a couple of campgrounds, one county park out Rhodendron Drive that overlooks the river, ocean, and jetties. The other is a very nice State campground about 5 miles south on 101 towards Reedsport. Just figured the Harbor Vista County park would be a little closer to the eats. Anyway, just thought I would pass it on if you wanted to add it to the 2.5 mile planning posting on the GL1800 Riders thread.
River House Motel in Florence OR just west of the bridge right on the river
Old Town Motel on US 101 just east of the bridge
Lane County Harbor Vista Park overlooking the jetty, river, about 4 miles downriver from the bridge
Oregon State Park Honeyman State Park about 5 miles south of the bridge on west side of US 101
I would say Newport just because it's closer. We can always go for a night ride to Florence if we haven't had enough by Newport.Harry said:OK - Just looked at that and figured out why they would be full. The third weekend of May is the annual Florence Rhody Festival, and by chance happens to be about the largest gathering of motorcycles on the Oregon Coast - complete with a 20K runner marathon, parade of old cars, three or four thousand bikers and who knows what.
Would suggest that we move the evening stop to Newport, or even Yachats. Dayle, let me know which way you want to jump, and I will run up the beach and look for a hangout.
You don't reqalize how much I hate to get in the middle of this type of thing. No matter where we stay, someone will bitch. But, here goes....It's getting closer, we just need to finalize a Motel fer the night ... where's Harry ?
