Looking for great sites along south Washington, north Oregon coast

Jump to last reply

As part of an anniversary trip we may take a drive from Seattle down to Portland. I'd like to get out to the coast to see some things along the way. My preference would be to spend about a day for the entire drive...which gives us about half a day to see several sites along the way (assuming we get early start out of Seattle). The sites we'd be interested in would be a nice, medium hike for an hour or two and maybe a museum/cultural center. But anything interesting along the way is game. I know that's rather general but anything that is unique to the northwest would be interesting to these Floridians. At least one hike is a must.

The route we'd probably take would be from Seattle to Olympia to Aberdeen and then along the coast down to Astoria, Seaside and then over to Portland. Google maps is telling me this route takes about 6 hours. If this route became too long then we could head down I-5 for part of the way to speed things up.

Thanks for any advice.
