I am a first time blogger and hope this site entertains, informs, and intregues those interested in life in Florence, Oregon. This coastal community of 15,000+ has been our home for nine years. Following a banking career leading to our move here in 2001, real estate has become my vocation, avocation, and passion. This incredible community has what may people are searching for; incredible natural beauty including the rocky shoreline to the North, 40+ miles of sand dunes to the South, freshwater lakes, rivers, streams to the East, all within a stones throw to Eugene, Oregon's second largest metropolitian area.
Florence has attracted highly energized retirees from throughout the US over the past 20 years. They enthusiastically envolve themselves in many community organizations which have been responsible for the creation of our fine hospital, performing arts center, library, senior center, Siuslaw Pioneer Museum, Habitat for Humanity, humane society, and countless others. Everything positive in this community is the result of volunteer efforts.
I hope you check out my blog, website, and links which will answer many of your questions about Florence and the Central Oregon Coast. .
