Portland, OR to Seattle trip advice

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodors!! My husband and I are planning a last minute trip to the Pacific Northwest. We are flying into PDX and out of SEA. I have a rough idea of what we want to do but am worried that we are trying to do to much (or the wrong things). Any help/suggestions are greatly appreciated.

A little background on us we are 29/31 yrs old and have been married for 5 yrs. We are into photography, hiking, beer, and learning about wine! We also love to explore new cities. I am an Earth Science teacher so seeing things like Mt. St. Helens are a huge plus for me (but not 100% necessary).

A tentative plan for us was…
Sunday, Day 1 - Land PDX @ 2:30 rent car drive to Cannon Beach area (sleep at coast)
Monday, Day 2 - Head back to Portland via Wine Country (sleep Portland)
Tuesday, Day 3 - Portland (sleep Portland)
Wednesday, Day 4 - Drive to Mt.St Helens and up to Olympic Pen. (Sleep Lake Quinault - i checked there is avaliability)
Thursday, Day 5 - Hoh Rainforest (hike) - La Push - Sleep in Port Angeles
Friday, Day 6 - Hurricane Ridge - Drive to Seattle via Bainbridge Ferry (get rid of car back in Seattle)
Saturday, Day 7 - Seattle
Sunday, Day 8 - Seattle (red eye home, flights leaves back to NYC @ 11:59 PM)

Things I am concerned about:
*missing Mt. Hood (is this a big no?)
*Cannon Beach and La Push - is it a waste of our time to do both?
*would it be better to base ourselves in Portland and take a day trip to wine country, Cannon Beach, Mt. Hood

Sorry if this is too much info…we tend to cram a lot into our trips!!

Thanks for any and all advice!!
