    Must sees in Oregon?

    I know this is fairly last minute, but thought I'd ask this worldly group anyway. We're heading to Oregon July 4 (third time in 3 years, but mostly have been visiting relatives and them driving us around.) What should we see/where should we go July 5-7 around the Portland to The Dalles area?
    Also, any recommendations for coastal must-visit locations or anywhere else in the valley?

    Thanks in advance for any help. PM is fine, too.

    Search for One-Eyed Willy's treasure? But watch out for the Fratelli family.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Must sees in Oregon?

    Rogue Brewery in Portland is pretty sweet--good beer and good eats, as well. Only other thing I can recommend is running down to the coast. Can't remember the name of the town, but there's a huge rock on a beach there that was used in "The Goonies." Really cool little town and the beach is GORGEOUS, especially at sunset.

    Edit: Cannon Beach, OR is where that is. Definitely worth the jaunt to get there.

    Re: Must sees in Oregon?

    National Volcano Monument park in the Bend area. MUST SEE - especially the obsidian fields. Not just a quick jaunt from Portland though. Mt St Helens another MUST SEE as well. Portland rocks in general and Cannon Beach is a nice beach destination about an hour or so from Portland.

    AKA: Haystack Rock. I enjoyed climbing to the top of Multnomah Falls. Voodoo Doughnuts...yes please. Grab some spicy cheese fritters at Salvador Molly's.

    Re: Must sees in Oregon?

    If you go cannon beach route, check out hug point. Also if you do go to Astoria, hit Bowpicker's fish and chips. It's awesome :)

    There are some side roads around Seaside and along the coast where you can drive onto the beach as well, great thing to do and build a campfire.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    You could try Casa Diablos Vegan Strip Club. Sounds interesting.
