Florence Heceta Head Lighthouse

Heceta Head Lighthouse

Situated high above the Pacific Ocean on the rugged Heceta Head outcropping is one of the most popular and inspirational sites on the Oregon Coast; and it is only about 10 scenic miles north of Florence. It is a must-see among must-sees here in Oregon’s Coastal Playground.

Heceta Head Lightstation [say “Ha (or Huh) – SEE – Tah” to sound like a local] is one of the most beautiful, and thus one of the most photographed, lighthouses in the world.

The Heceta Head Lighthouse and Queen Ann style Light Keeper’s home, circa 1894, are both are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Free tours are available of both. The home is now a highly-rated bed-and-breakfast with antique furnishings and an indulgent seven-course breakfast of locally- and regionally-sourced delicacies.

Love going to the festival & parade but with the gas prices we can't go anywhere but to DC & groceries.

What restaurants bars are going have music rhody weekend? I understand the beachcomber is going to be closed?

They look fantastic and so fun to watch our amazing City of Florence, Oregon - Government Staff putting them up! Their contribution is truly appreciated and thank you to the sponsors!

Yaaaayyy! I 💞💞💞 our baskets. Makes the whole town feel like a party! But tell me ... is this earlier than usual? Time is so bizarre these days, it could just be me.

I hardly can wait to enjoy their beauty come our visit in July.

Wow, can't wait to see them up!

I'd like two. May I come get them?

How does one sponsor or contribute?

Who do you get from??
