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!

    We live in Sherman Oaks, Ca and will be flying to Seattle on July 21 and leaving July 22 to drive from Seattle to Port Orford to stay at the WindSpring. How much time will it take to drive from Seattle to Port Orford?
