In June, after two days in Portland, we are planning a four day stay in Cannon Beach. What are some fabulous day trips around this area? We are two couples approaching our almost "retirement" status and pretty much like the "tried and true". All of us love scenery, moderate hiking trails and eating. We (the women) , enjoy unique shopping, wine and healthy restaurant offerings. They (the men) enjoy golfing, beer, and steak.
We would probably be willing to travel in a direction two-three hours to reach a "destination" and certainly would be willing to spend a day in the car seeing and experiencing what Oregon has to offer.
