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
* guided city walks
* food (BIG FOODIE)
* secret city hot spots
Thank you in advance for any tips people can give me.
