We are planning a trip to the Oregon Coast/Portland Area. We are flying into PDX and driving to Lincoln City, we already have condo hotel room for 8 nights and returning to Portland for the last 4 nights the week of April 27 - May 9th. I would like to know of any recommendations for eats and sites. Also would like to know good places to look for glass balls and beachcombing for shells in the Lincoln area. We plan to use Lincoln City as our base and drive up and down the coast. Would like to visit a good winery, the cheese factory, see seals, whales, cranberry bogs, Mt. Helens, Mt. Hood. Is there any other suggestions? Also, looking for a central located hotel in Portland for 4 nights, thought about the Staybridges, any suggestions or comments?
