Oregon in Sept.--itinerary advice

Jump to last reply

My DH and I are flying in and out of PDX in mid-Sept. We will have 7 full days for touring and want to see the coast, Crater Lake, and the river gorge. How is this itinerary?

Day 1-Portland; Day 2-Cannon Beach; Day 3-Cannon Beach or Yachats; Day 4-Yachats; Day 5-drive around Crater Lake, stay in Prospect; Day 6-a.m. boat ride on Crater Lake, then up to Mt. Hood/Hood River; Day 7-back to Portland.

We will make several stops along the coast, including the aquarium. Would it be best to spend 2 nights at Cannon Beach or Yachats? Depending on where we stay Day 6, we'll have all or most of 2 days in Portland...should we cut it to one and add an extra day somewhere else? We like to do some exploring, but are not big-time hikers. We like beautiful scenery and quaint/funky/cool shops and good food. Also, I know it can get quite foggy that time of year, so that may have some bearing. I've gathered lots of ideas for stops/activities from previous posts...just not sure how to best divvy up our time.
Thanks for any advice!
