Oregon Road Trip Itinerary Suggestions Please

Jump to last reply

First question--better to drive south to north along the coast or vice versa?

My husband and I are driving with a small dog from Oakland California, returning to Oakland. Start and end spots can't be changed. (We're budget travelers)

Here's our tentative itinerary for your suggestions (Assuming south to north on coast, but could be reversed)

Day 1: Leaving Oakland about 11:00 am Rt. 5 north(can't get away much earlier, although on the road we will start around 8:30 or 9:00 each day) Stop for the night somewhere in northern California

Day 2: north to Rt. 42 then west to Brandon. Spend the night in that vicinity

Day 3: north on 101 I would like to spend the night in Garibaldi, because I like the looks of the Garibaldi Inn and RV park.

Day 4: North on 101 to Astoria and then east on 30 to Portland area. Spend two nights there

Day 5: drive the Columbia River Gorge and return to the same place stayed Day 4

Day 6: Morning in Portland and head south on Rt. 5 Spend the night around Eugene

Day 7: Drive rest of way to Oakland and spend the night.

Day 8: fly home. (Flight leaves at 1:45 p.m.

Any scheduling suggestions? (I've read through previous posts on the coast and Columbia River, so you don't have to repeat the suggestions).
