Road tripping! Six great trips from Portland
Summer road trips are the best! Pack your cooler, set your playlist and go. Map or no map, take some time to visit our beautiful state for day venturing. Here are our top picks:
The coast has so much to offer. Seaside with its promenade shops, Cannon Beach for serenity, Tillamook for a cheese tour or Newport to visit the aquarium. Each beach has its unique feel, dense forest and fresh seafood.
Portland has a great beer scene, but there are over 700 wineries in Oregon! Set your course for a wine tasting adventure through the pastoral countryside.
Mount Hood is perfect year round. Why? Views, history, lake activities, mountain biking, hiking, heritage and festivals, skiing and snowballs. Enjoy a scenic drive to Timberline Lodge to say hello to their two St. Bernhard dogs Heidi and Bruno.
The Columbia River Gorge is designated a Natural Scenic Area, the largest in the US and there is no shortage of day-trip adventures. Bike or hike the Old Scenic Highway from Hood River to Mosier, hike the 77 Oregon-side waterfalls or wind surf in one of the most popular spots in the world!
Visit the Ape Cave Lava Tubes at Mount St. Helens or summit the volcano on the difficult Ptarmigan Trail. The Visitor Center is a great stop to learn about the famous 1980 eruption or cool off in the blue waters of nearby Yale Lake.
Head south to Silver Falls State Park and enjoy nature's majesty on the Trail of Ten Falls, a moderate 7.2-mile loop
