As far as activities, a lot depends on what type of things you want to do; hunting, fishing, camping, riding on the dunes, beach combing are all activities in abundance in this area.
Shopping - we have a mall with numerous stores in it, a Super Walmart, and a very nice Fred Meyers in the area. Most fast foods are here (except Arby's, In and Out, Carls Jr, and I'm sure a few others that slip my mind).
We have some GREAT medical facilities here. Check out North Bend Medical at
and a great Orthopedic surgeons as well at South Coast Orthopedics....
Hope this helps!
