One of our favorite trips, pre-pandemic, was a road trip up the Oregon Coast. It’s a two-day drive from where we live and we only had a week to do it, which we thought would be lots of time, but alas, it was not! We want to go back.
We enjoyed Hood River and Bend, then spend almost a full day circumnavigating Crater Lake. It really is that blue! (and windy!)

We actually dipped into Northern California for a walk amongst some redwoods, then began making our way North. My top advice for anyone considering a trip like this is definitely to book more than one night when you stop. Accommodation is at a premium so we had booked ahead which meant we had to move along to our next reservation every day. We enjoyed jumping out of the car at different spots to snap the beautiful scenery, but if we’d had more time, we would have loved to spend days exploring each place.
By the time we reached Cannon Beach in Northern Oregon, we finally paused and had a really nice time wandering what felt like an endless beach and ocean for miles.
We had a great time and would definitely go back. Our only issue is that we have so many other wonderful places on our bucket list!
