Of course, the long trek is worth it, but an easier and quicker method will be available this summer. According to golf.blotpost.com 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. . .
