Brookings is the largest and most southerly of the Siskiyou Coast cities. Located along the coast just north of the California border, Brookings provides access to the Chetco and Winchuck Rivers, the Kalmiopsis Wilderness Area, and Oregon's most scenic coastline. Because of its unusually mild climate, Brookings is often referred to as "The Banana belt of Oregon". Temperatures often reach 70F even in the winter months and whilst the rest of the coast is experiencing much cooler temperatures. Flowers bloom all year round in this climate; in fact about 90% of the country's Easter lilies are grown locally.

A beautiful area of the coast, Brookings-Harbor has become home to many retirees and is one of the fastest-growing real estate markets on the coast.

Commercial flower growing is one of the area industries and you can see fields abloom in color in spring and summer. There are also many shops, restaurants and a performing arts center where plays by the local theatre group are performed.
