Things to do with Kids

We are planning our US holiday for July and are debating whether to drive from San Fran to Seattle over a period of 10 days. As we have 2 boys, 7 and 4, we would need to break the trip with kid highlights so as to not boring them to tears. Apart from the Redwoods (which will excite us but perhaps not the children), what other options are there in Oregon for kids activities?? We plan to stay at some stage for a 2-3 day break at a lake/forest cabin also. Are there any places that are first rate which may not be fully booked at this stage??

I have two suggestions for you about an hour and a half east of I-5 at Roseburg there is Crater Lake a beautiful natural wonder http://www.nps.gov/crla/

Also near the state capitol of Oregon Salem there are many fun things for kids of all ages to do Enchanted forest and another theme park are next door to each other both loads of fun not huge but they are definately fun http://www.enchantedforest.com/

hope that helps you a little

Check out the Riverside Inn in Grant's Pass. Your kids will love a ride on the Hellgate Jet Boats there and they leave right from the dock at the hotel. You will see bald eagles, ospry, all kinds of cool things. :) www.riverside-inn.com

You also might want to check out Wildlife Safari in Winston, OR. It is a drive through zoo and very fun. Enjoy your trip! :)

The beach the beach! Aquariums along Oregon coast include one in Newport, where Keiko the Orca whale was kept.

Also, there are all kinds of little festivals that you could find out about ahead of time and see if they're kid oriented!
