Coos County Reviews
I grew up in Coos County, in the small town of Coos Bay. For my schooling, I attended two private schools: Christ Lutheran Church and School and Kingsview Christan School. Overall, both schools did not benefit me when I entered North Bend High School because I was behind in science and math compared to my peers. During high school, my friends and I struggled from time to time to find things to do. There are no major shopping centers in Coos County, the only major stores are Fred Meyer and Wal-Mart. Like everyone else in this town we travel to either Eugene or Portland to satisfy our shopping desires. Sadly, this causes annoyance for Southwestern Oregon Community College students because there is literally nothing to do. Honestly, Coos County is a retirement community. The great things about Coos County though are the sand dunes and the ocean. Talking trails around Shore Acres is an adventurous activity and riding ATVs on the sand dunes provide a thrilling experience.
Coos County has some of the most beautiful landscapes in the state. Despite the beauty, Coos County could use some major improvements. There's isn't much to do for entertainment, especially if you aren't the type that is into hunting and being outdoors.
It's a nice vacation county but there are those people that just have to mess things up. Stores are closing down but some new buildings are being built in the hope of keeping the county active.
