As part of our big road trip this summer I'm giving two days between Olympia WA and Ashland OR with an overnight at Newport. I know it's not much time but it will be mostly enjoying scenery from the car with maybe a couple of stops for a meal or an interesting destination. So I'm looking for the best route from Olympia to Newport in a day.
The next day will be a relatively short drive to Ashland and I'm building in time for a quick visit to Bandon. Wishing it would include a round of golf, but DW says we can do that next time. So again, looking for route suggestions and any other coastal highlights for that day.
Thanks in advance.
