My husband and I will be driving from Seattle to Oregon the day after Memorial Day. We are getting an early start and were thinking about stopping at Cannon Beach before heading to McMinnville for two nights, then popping over to Portland for the last two nights (hitting Columbia Gorge for a day while in Portland). Anyway, based on my question in the Seattle forum, it sounds like driving from Seattle (SeaTac specifically) to Cannon Beach and then on to McMinnville in one day is too ambitious. Thoughts? I hate to skip the coast, but our time is limited. Should we spend one night around Cannon Beach and only one night in McMinnville? I'm afraid we'll be cutting wine country too short.
BTW we are spending three nights in Seattle before we leave and will have four nights total to spend in Oregon. Just trying to divide the time the best we can without feeling overwhelmed. Please let me know if our current itinerary can/should be reworked.
Thank you in advance for the advice!
