We have one day to explore this area. We are staying in Downtown Portland. We will Rent a car that morning and head out by 9am. What is the best route/ falls to see/ town to have lunch in/ drive back?
I have been reading a lot on the forums for recommendations but everyone's questions are all over the place and I dont have a sense of the geography or travel times yet. So excuse me if this has been asked before. I didnt see it in my standard search.
We are looking for Views and waterfalls. We want dramatic scenery with not a ton of hiking. 30 min hike max i would think. We want to get a sense of the area and a taste of everything. Eating with a view is always a favorite where possible.
Thank you for your help!
