I've been reading relevant threads trying to come up with a rough itinerary for a summer trip beginning in Seattle and found a ton of helpful information. I'm a bit overwhelmed since it seems like there is so much to see and do. Can you please look over my itinerary and see if this is doable?
We are most interested in the beautiful ocean scenery, outdoor experiences unique to the region (we are from NY), and, most importantly (to me) local, farm-to-table food (and beer!).
Nights 1-3- fly into Seattle
Nights 4-5- Portland
Night 6- Yachats
Night 7- Bandon
Night 8- Crescent City
Night 9- ? fly back out of Portland next day
The three nights in Seattle are non-negotiable. I added Crescent City on the assumption that we could see the Redwoods from there conveniently; is that an accurate assumption? It would pain me to eliminate the Redwoods if we are so close since I don't know when we will be back. But, I don't want to rush our drive down the coast-- I want to leave plenty of time for unplanned adventures, so I will cut it if necessary.
I really want to include a visit to the Willamette Valley and was thinking that could break up the 6 hour drive from Crescent City back to Portland for night 9.
Thoughts? Thank you in advance! I am so excited for this trip!
