We are thinking on driving from Vancouver, BC to the Oregon Coast. We don't know how far or where to go yet. We will be leaving July 12 and returning by July 16 (5 days return). We really need help building an itinerary of places to go and visit in a short time. There is so much we do not know where to start! Please help us find good sights, where to stay and where to eat (on a budget).
To give you an idea, we are interested on the following:
Mount St Helens
The Beach (don't know which one yet)
Beautiful Views, mountains (not too much hiking please)
Any suggestions on where to go, what to do, stay, routes, etc. are welcomed! We need a vacation BADLY. Thanks for your help.
