Coos Bay is a city located in Coos County, Oregon with a total population of 15,374. The city is located at the mouth of the Coos River on Coos Bay, on the Oregon Coast. Coos Bay is home to Southwestern Oregon Community College, an Indian Casino, nearby world class golf, Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, Steve Prefontaine and a whole lot of Meth.
Downtown Coos Bay has many tourist amenities, including a boardwalk, pedestrian mall, coffee shops, bistros, the Coos Art Museum and Mingus Park; but is surounded by vast slums such as Empire (home to the area's one and only Wal*Mart), Bunker Hill, Englewood and Barview. Here crime is rampant, drug production thrives and drunken wife beating is the norm. These areas are also where a majority of the town's murders take place.
Coos Bay is also home to many fine beaches. Nearby are Sunset Bay, Cape Arago, Basendorff and Horsefall beaches. These beaches are usually empty and pristine, due to the constant wind and fog that characterizes the area's climate. Those who decide to brave the cool weather sometimes hold bonfires but are usually stopped, illegally searched and fined by the fascist local county and state police, who instead of focusing on the rampant crime forementioned, prefer to prevent young adults from having any sort of fun at the beach.
