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.

We are just one of many cancelled events - even Shore Acres has cancelled their annual Holiday Lights. bit.ly/2yH8Yh9 Stay strong!

Disappointing, but not surprising given all the cancelations along the Oregon coast. I know this was a tough decision, and one you agonized over for weeks. I respect it and appreciate all you do at the Chamber. There are other ways of celebrating the 4th of July, and we'll come up with them. Hopefully the funds saved can go back into our businesses to give them a boost.

What restrictions? I stand on my porch and can see them above the trees. I imagine most of Florence can, and if not, just drive to where you can see them. Even out of your vehicles you will probably be 6' apart. I know this worked at Peace Harbor for the flyover a few days ago.

Is there any chance that the money allocated for the show could be turned into small grants for local businesses impacted by covid?

It is hardly fair to the citizens of Florence to be abused like this...there has not even been a case of this so called virus in Florence....over stepping the law does not make this right..IT MAKES IT UNCONSTITUTIONAL...

I'm not very happy about this! Such a bad decision!

That makes me so sad!!!! 🎆🎇🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
