Oregon vacation with teenagers

Jump to last reply

This is our second family vacation to Oregon and need advice on itinerary. Trip is ten days in mid August, First night we arrive at 10pm, will stay at a hotel near airport. Not sure where yet. Next day drive to Columbia Gorge/Hood River. (thinking full day, drive to Mt Hood , stay one night (hotel suggestions?), Next day visit Ski Bowl (girls ages 14&17 should enjoy). Then off to Bend area-maybe Sunriver-we were there last trip and loved it, but another suggestion for a nice place would be great. Thinking 3-4 days in Bend, including a day trip to Crater Lake. From Bend drive to Salem (stopping along the way) and then to Portland. Need a place to stay in Portland for 2-3 nights.
Hotel suggestions would be helpful, Decent budget(not into motels), thinking about Mcmenamis just wondering if appropriate for teenagers. Also do not want share baths.
Last visit we did the Southern Coast, Rogue River, Sand Dunes in Reedsport, Sunriver.
We didnt get to Crater Lake or Portland or Willamette Valley or Mt Hood. So we are trying to hit more of the spots we missed.
Ideas for must see/do in the area.
All help appreciated!
