Despite rumors to the contrary, Brookings is open for business.
Planning a trip to or through Brookings in the coming days or weeks, tourists and visitors will find Route 101 (Chetco Avenue inside Brookings city limits) open and fully accessible.
Local businesses, restaurants and lodging establishments are also open and ready to accommodate the traveler’s needs.
Recently the wild lands fire called the Chetco Bar Fire did put the City on evacuation notice; however, those advisories have been scaled back, and it is business as usual in the City once again.
This weekend when the sweltering temperatures in the valley are taking their toll, the coastal breezes, mild temperatures and pleasantly warm sunshine of Brookings are the perfect alternative.
Brookings and its business community invite you to visit soon.
