I have read a lot of these posts and I am a bit confused. I am flying into San Franscisco on Monday the 23rd and flying out of Portland. Wish I could do it the other way around, but skymiles would'nt allow it. I booked the airfare today so it is last minute. I am trying to plan a birthday getaway for my husband. We are in our late twenties early thirties. We have never been to the Oregon Coast. I need help with my itinerary. Here's what I have so far:
Day 1- San Francisco- see some of the sights
Day 2- Redwoods- Lodging in Eureka- Husband is very interested in the Redwoods. How long should we stay?
Day 3- Redwoods- Lodging in Crescent City????
Day 4- Lodging in Gold Beach- I booked the 104 mile jet boat ride with Jerry's.
Day 5- This is where I am stumped. I would like to see the Sea Lion caves, Heceta lighthouse, Yachats, Newport and drive the 3 Capes scenic route, and stop into Tillamook cheese factory.
Where would be the best place to stay to see these places?
Day 6 - Same as above
Day 7,8 & 9- Cannon Beach- Escoloa State Park- Oswald West State Park. Any other suggestions?
I really hate to rush this trip, but this is as long as we can get away for. We want to be able to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!!
