Florence Oregon Living


Florence is a great place to live, work and play!   It is one of the few places where one has ocean beaches, forested lakes, and riverfront scenery right in your back yard.  In addition, it is just an hour to the I-5 corridor, offering top entertainment and dining between Eugene and Portland.  The temperate climate, between 35 and 80, adds to the amenities Florence offers, creating a little piece of paradise in the Pacific Northwest.

Florence retirees are a wonderful resource to the community and can be found lending their wisdom and expertise in our classrooms, medical facilities, outdoor organizations and more.  Retirees also enjoy the relaxed pace and abundant outdoor recreation, making this one of the most sought after retirement communities in the country.

Young families will also find a home with exceptional schools, library, and park facilities.  The active and supportive community provides Power Hour tutoring program, pre-school library time, high school career tracking. and much more.  Siuslaw High School has produced state championships in track and field, and #1 football team in 2006.  A local Boys and Girls Club also provides numerous after-school and summer activities.

Florence provides continuing educational opportunities with a local Lane Community College campus.  Students can receive Associates' degrees through a combination of onsite and distance learning.   The campus also provides community learning courses to enhance local lives in the arts, technologies and out of doors. The popular Outward Ventures program provides seniors' transportation to area cultural events and outdoor activities.

The  Florence Community Event Center is host to local community theatre and musicians, presentations from Eugene dance and musical troupes, and even performances from such notables as Helen Reddy and Barry McGuire.  Three Rivers Casino, opened in 2007, adds its own brand of excitement and headliner entertainment, as well as venues in Eugene, North Bend and Lincoln City.

Living in this paradise is truly like being on vacation every day of the week.
