We are planning a family road trip from San Francisco to Oregon in July for 6 days, driving north on I-5 inland via Crater Lake to Portland, and driving back south on the Oregon coast, then Ashland and I-5 to San Francisco
Here is our preliminary itinerary:
Day 1: San Francisco - Klamath Falls (overnight)
Day 2: Crater Lake - Bend or Eugene? (overnight)
Day 3: Portland - We have been to Portland many times so plan only for 1 night there.
Day 4: Astoria - Seaside - Tillamook - Newport (overnight)
Day 5: Newport - Florence - Ashland (overnight)
Day 6: Ashland - San Francisco
Do you have any recommendations on places to skip or include? Is it worth driving and staying in Bend on our way to Portland or skip Bend and go back to I-5 after Crater Lake? Thanks!
