I'm planning a trip from Sweden to the US in May 08 with my family (husband and two kids, 4 and 1½). I'm SO excited already and keep planning and planning. :)
What do you think, is this a realistic plan?
Day 1. Arrive in Seattle in the afternoon. Stay at an airport hotel.
Day 2. Rent a car and drive down to Astoria (thinking abot staying at the Cannery Pier Hotel).
Day 3. Stops at Cannon Beach, Tillamook, etc. Maybe staying the night in Pacific City?
Day 4. Drive to Newport (maybe staying over night at Agate Beach). Oregon Coast Aquarium.
Day 5. A longer drive from Newport to Sunriver where we're staying with friends.
***Does anyone know of any good stops along way to Sunriver? We all need to get out of the car a few times during this drive.
Day 6. Sunriver
Day 7. Sunriver
Day 8. Drive from Sunriver to Multnomah Falls, and then to Portland.
Day 9. Portland
Day 10. Drive from Portland to Seattle, to catch a flight to Honolulu in the afternoon. Maybe stop at Mt St Helens on the way to Seattle?
We're staying with friends in Hawaii for 9 days before we fly back to Seattle, make a stop at another friend's house for a couple of days before we go back to Sweden again.
Anyway, my question is really if our Oregon plan seems to be OK so far?
Stops along the way from Newport to Sunriver?
Things to do/see in Portland with smaller children?
Is Pacific City a good place to stay in?
Questions questions... I'm looking forward to this trip so much!
