Why getting to Bandon Dunes is about to become a lot easier

April 20, 2015

The only bad thing you'll ever hear about a trip to Bandon Dunes is about the journey itself. Most people fly to Portland and then drive four and a half hours south to reach the popular golf destination.

Of course, the long trek is worth it, but an easier and quicker method will be available this summer. According to United Airlines will add two flights a week (Sunday and Wednesday) from its Denver hub to Southwest Oregon Regional Airport in North Bend from July 1 to Oct. 18.


And according to Google Maps, that post-flight drive is only 36 minutes. Hmm. We wonder what you could do at Bandon with a few extra hours. . .
