I have maps and charts to tell me the approximate "driving times" between towns, but how much "real" time do you need to see all there is to see there? We like to stop and take pictures, actually see the towns instead of just driving thru. We are from Texas and have never been to Oregon so we want to take in as much of your beauty as we can. We are driving from Portland to San Francisco in eight days. We are not short on time and could change our plane tickets to give us more days if needed. We are seniors and are interested in Lighthouses, scenery and restaurants.
Thanking all of you in advance for your help. We leave Texas on the 24th of July.
