Vancouver, BC Canada to Oregon (Portland area)

I am planning a trip to Oregon for myself and 2 other people by car for 7 days. We will likely drive down in one day with the odd restroom/lunch stop but wanted to know if anyone has any inside tips of cheapish places to visit, eat and stay while in the Portland area or even driving routes from Vancouver to Oregon? I am not too fussy on shopping or outlets while on holidays.

I am not sure if it will help at all but I like:

* scenic drives

* lakes

* guided city walks

* food (BIG FOODIE)

* secret city hot spots

Thank you in advance for any tips people can give me.

From I 5 go west on SR 20 to Deception Pass and on to Whidbey Island for a very scenic route southbound, return to the mainland via the short ride Mukitleo Ferry. See this on Google Maps.

At (hardly) worst, you'd add an overnight to the southbound trip, but it's a delightful excursion. I'd plan on spending at least four hours visiting the island's key sights.

Whidbey Island is a lovely, interesting, day or more getaway with many features of the Pacific NW; this TA article includes key websites, tours, maps. tripadvisor.com/Travel-g58824-s2/Whidbey-Isl…
