Any suggestions for Oregon Coastal towns? Taking a drive from Seattle to Portland.
If you head west after Portland, I recommend Newport (fishing town) and Yachats (scenic, small, coffee).

If you have the time, driving the entire Oregon Coast is the best way to explore, but since you’ll be in Portland your closest options will be to head west to Seaside or Cannon Beach. Ecola Beach & Haystack Rock are a must!
