Portland trip during Columbus day long weekend

Jump to last reply

Hey Fodors, I need your expert advise on planning a trip to Portland. I am planning to travel to portland on the 5th of October, spend time until the 9th/10th (depending on the places to visit) and head to Sacramento to visit family. I have been googling a lot and received a ton of results with different places and itineraries. Below are the places I have captured from the various threads that I stumbled across:

Day 1:
Mount Rainier National Park, Ashford, WA
Point Defiance Park, Tacoma, WA
Mount Saint Helens National Volcanic Monument

Day 2:
Cannon Beach, OR/Newport, OR
Japanese Garden, Southwest Kingston Avenue, Portland, OR
Columbia River Gorge N S A Boundary, Hood River, OR

Day 3:
Silver Falls State Park, Silverton, OR
Crater Lake National Park, Klamath, OR

Obviously I have too many places. And the other thing is that I have to work till 3 PM on the 9th and 10th. so I am expecting to keep places that are nearby to the place of stay for those evenings. Any help in removing/adding destinations would be really appreciated.

To give a background on the group travelling. It would be me, my wife and couple of friends at the max. No worries about having to drive long or push more. if there are similar activities in couple of these places - say hiking/skiing, we would prefer to do it in only one place... the places were it is best.

Apart from that we may spend more time clicking fotos, enjoying the views, etc. We would like to visit beaches, walk across the shore, eat, enjoy, but would not be going for a swim. similarly, we would prefer doing 1 hike at the most.

please let me know if there is redundancy. Your feedback on the order of visiting the places along with any stay suggestions would also be very helpful.

we wil start the day early and try not to spend too much time in one location.

Please note that I havent listed anything for the evenings of 9th and 10th. This is because I have kept them as buffers. Once I receive suggestions on the stay for these 2 days, I can include places that are nearby.

Thanks in advance for your time and feedback
