Located only six miles north of the California border, Brookings, OR is a pocket of positive energy featuring bountiful and beautiful scenery, magnificent native flowers, the Southern Oregon Kite Festival and surrounded by America’s Wild Rivers Coast.
Brookings is the westernmost spot in the contiguous United States. Its weather is mild and temperate. Some refer to Brookings as, “one of the most inviting and picturesque places in the American Northwest.” Visitors will discover local art galleries, dining delicacies, affordable lodging, specialty shops and even local theatre productions.
Brookings is well-known for two stunning types of flowers, the lily and azalea. In fact, a twelve-mile stretch between Brookings and Smith River, CA has become the sole provider for every lily bulb produced in North America.
Azaleas can be found in Brookings “crown jewel of city parks,” Azalea Park. Colors abound year-round from over 400 rhododendrons, bulbs, annuals, shrubs and ornamental trees. Each May, the park’s annual Azalea Festival hosts the American Music Festival, a parade, car show, children’s carnival and much more.
The question while in Brookings is not what outdoor activity to do, but what activity will you not do?
Brookings is encircled in natural beauty: the coastal cliffs dotted by rocky outcroppings and smooth sandy beaches of the Pacific Coast shoreline; America’s Wild River Coast’s fresh waters cascading and carving their way through the majestic coastal mountain range; and, the endless opportunities for river and deep sea fishing, hiking, kayaking, sailing and whale watching.
