For the explorer, Port Orford offers adventure by providing several historical points of interest. The port offers a unique treat for the eyes to behold, as it operates one of only two dolly docks located within the United States. Not only is this the only dock of its kind in Oregon, but along the entire Pacific Coastline. For those unaware of the dolly dock principle, Port Orford's commercial fisherman are only able to enter the water via crane, making for a fascinating afternoon watch.
For a little bit of culture, there are several art galleries owned and operated by local artists who contribute their own whimsical sense of creativity and charm.

Historical Points of Interest
Cape Blanco Lighthouse
Visible from 22 miles off shore and considered a Port Orford treasure, is the Cape Blanco Lighthouse. The specific location of this particular lighthouse is considered the furthest most westerly point within the continental United States. Proposed in 1864, Cape Blanco was the first of its kind to be outfitted with a "first-order Fresnel lens," which was added in 1870. In 1936, the first-order lens was replaced with a state of the art second-order lens. To this day, the Cape Blanco lighthouse still guides fisherman, sailors and boating enthusiasts safely to shore.
Lighthouse Tours are available annually for a meager $2.00 fee from April through of October. Although closed every Tuesday, the lighthouse is open to the public from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday through Monday. Tickets are available at the lovely gift shop where memorabilia abounds and visitors can purchase Cape Blanco specific items, as well as other unique ditties pertaining to all the wonderful lighthouses along the entire Oregon Coastline.
