We are planning to take our RV along the Oregon Coast. We want to go as far as San Francisco because our son wants to spend his birthday there. This is our first big trip with our RV after just a couple over nighters when we bought it last summer. We are a family of 5 with kids who are 12,7,6. We are not hikers but would like to get out and do small walks and the kids are excited to fly kites, play in tide pools and the sand. We also love the typical touristy stuff like aquariums, museums. The things we definitely want to do so far are Tillamook cheese tour, jet boat tour and dune buggies. We have roughly 14 days for this trip and would like to stay right on the coast on the way down and probably just the I-5 to save time on the trip home. Our first stop will be Astoria since it's only 5-6 hours from home and we'd like to visit the Maritime Museum, the Column and hopefully ride the trolley.
My biggest concern is how often and how far to go between campsites. We'd like the kids to have a few days to chill and ride bikes around at some stops but we also don't mind doing a few day trips from our campsites either. Are there certain towns,attractions or state parks that you can recommend that we can stay in one place and visit 2 or more? I'm hoping that makes sense the way I wrote it:)
I know we could take a month and still not see everything so I'd love to hear peoples favorite spots and tips for this trip.
Also, since it's hubbys first big drive anything I should warn him about on the drive?
Thanks in advance!
