Oregon for a Week (or so); Include Portland?

Jump to last reply

The plan is for a trip this coming August; spending a week and perhaps a couple extra days. The main idea is to experience the Oregon coast. Will have a rental car and fly in and out of Portland.

Cannon Beach is definitely on the agenda; am wondering about at least one other "beach town" or experience. No children involved.

Will also spend an overnight in Corvallis where we will visit a relative who teaches at Oregon State.

Am wondering if Portland is worth a couple of days. Yes, I know it is a nice city according to many but trying to decide if some other internal location might afford some spectacular views, etc.

I can be Portland-convinced I am sure so any thoughts are welcome and thanks in advance.
