The Bay Area consists of Coos Bay, North Bend and Charleston; three very distinct communities that, together, create a truly unique experience. Each has its own special attractions and interests, yet each shares a common community focus.

Serving Coos Bay, North Bend and Charleston | OREGON

The Bay Area, consisting of Coos Bay, North Bend and Charleston, is a truly unique community. Located on the Southern Oregon Coast, home to some of the most spectacular beaches and sand dunes in the world, the Bay Area has become a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and retirees to experience living in the unspoiled beauty that surrounds us, and is the perfect nest for young families to grow.
Our business community accentuates individuality and character while our retailers strike a balance between distinctively local shops and nationally known chains.

So whether you’re a first time visitor, prospective new resident or business owner considering relocation, once you come here, you’ll never want to leave.
