We have only one day to visit the coast in late June. We will be travelling from Portland, but will spend the night in Salem. It seems we should plan on our day being in the central part of the coast for easy access to Salem later that night. We have visited and loved the north part of the Oregon coast many times-- our favorite is Oswald West state Park with the cliffs, waterfall, small crowds and utter beauty. Does anyone have any recommendations for that kind of coast experience near Lincoln City? I don’t think we want to be in Lincoln City though – we don’t need salt water taffy or outlet malls. We will have 4 children between our two families, so we want to keep the driving to as much of a minimum as possible.
Thank you so much in advance!
