My husband and I enjoyed the Oregon coastline as part of an 11 night motorcycle trip, traveling 5115 miles. Could spend weeks enjoying this beautiful area. Our key destination for our trip was the BMW international rally, which was held in Salem at the state fairgrounds site. Along the coastline, it was cloudy and cool. We were there in mid-July, 2013.

NJ folks here. Landed in Portland. Rented a car. Drove and stayed in Seaside for 3 days at the Gilbert Inn - nice place to stay buy not a B&B. While there explored north (Astoria) and a bit south. BEST ADVICE IF RENTING: go to Fred Myer (local store) - get a member card - save $$$ on gas!!! After Seaside for 3 days, south to Netarts (Tillamook) - at Cape Lookout B&B. Great place!! Toured surrounding area north and south for 3 days then south to Yachats - our favorite area, for 4 days at Wayside Lodge. Toured as far south as Florence and old Town. Weather was nice. Windy and cold, but we expected that for the most part. Never got above 70 degrees. We hiked, flew kites, fire on beach, blew glass, toured etc etc etc.
Surprisingly inexpensive if you avoid the obvious expensive restaurants. You MUST See the Oregon Coast!

A wonderful place to get out of the heat of this summer! Mornings foggy and cool! Great views and places to visit. Fabulous beaches and wonderful people! Made it from Tillamook all the way down to Redwood Forest in California. Traveled in 5th wheel and found many interesting RV Parks and camp hosts! This is 3 rd year for taking the 5th wheel. Salishan Resort is a beautiful motel and golf course is very highly rated! Great service and location.

Our family spent a couple of days driving along the Oregon coast when driving to California after entering Highway 101 in Lincoln City. We could have spent our entire vacation exploring this coast. The views were breathtaking everywhere we stopped--pictures don't do justice to the incredible views to be found from the many parking areas provided. We were towing a small RV and were concerned that parking might be difficult if we wanted to make any stops, but we did not find that to be a problem anywhere. Since it was summer we thought we might encounter bumper-to-bumper traffic but that was not the case. The State of Oregon should be commended for keeping so many miles of the shoreline protected from commercial development!

What a beautiful place! My wife and I enjoyed spending several days in Oregon, many of which were on the coast. Brad Hadfield is a phenomenal fishing guide, we had a great day catch and release sturgeon fishing with plenty of bigs! The shopping in the coastal towns like Astoria, Lincoln City and Newport was fun and good. Th restaurants and seafood were spectacular, especially the Ocean Blue at Gino's in Newport. When you walk in you think "this place doesn't look like much, and it seems expensive for what it looks like!" Once you get your dinner, you realize how worth it it is!!! Great place. The beaches are beautiful, but sometimes a little windy/chilly so be prepared. Our only regret was coming over the 4th of July, the traffic and people were crazy, but we survived and it was a great trip overall. Highly recommend this area of the country!
