We are in our mid 50s (okay, late 50s), and will be flying into Portland for a week, including the 4th of July. We have never been to Oregon. We like the outdoors, good restaurants, cool towns, and nice rooms in nice hotels. We will have a car.
We thought we'd spend a few days in Portland, a few days on the coast, and a day or two back in Portland. Any specific suggestions?
Looking at the Monaco to start in Portland, and RiverPlace to end in Portland (for the 4th of July). Or staying on the coast for the 4th?
Looking at Whale Cove Inn in Depoe Bay, or heading up to Cannon Beach? Would love to see whales, seals, uncrowded beaches....
Any ideas? Thanks!
