Oregon Coast Highway 101 is a beautiful drive. We had some time to get down the coast so we stopped at a few beaches and really enjoyed the views.

Had a great lunch at Mo’s seafood and chowder restaurant. The food was wonderful. We ordered the family chowder with extra garlic bread. The wait staff was fun and very helpful. Be prepared for a wait to get in.

We have traveled the Oregon coast a few times and it is gorgeous! The water is cold but the beaches are gorgeous. We love Bandon, Seaside, and Astoria. Many places to stop and the views are wonderful even from the car!

Cindy make sure what ever road you take that you check wildfire activity in the area. The other poster gave the same route advice I was going to give. Safe travels!
