Not sure where the lighthouses are.......
I toured the coast from Astoria to Florence a few years back.
There are lots of good campgrounds (with fun tsunami warning signs)
The roads are left to be desired. I stayed on PCH. Very beautiful road, with decent blacktop, but there are RVs EVERYWHERE! Its like a parade for Mr. Winnebago's 100th birthday over there. At one point, on a downhill, one was so close to me, I reached out and was able to pound on the side of it, as he passed me going about 10mph faster than I, a reminder to him that I was there.
BUT, I would much rather have those RVs than the logging trucks on PCH in Washington state.
All in all, a good tour, just be on the up and up with traffic.
As for lighthouses, I was on the coast the entire time, but cannot recall lighthouses..... Are they further down? Or was I too concerned with the beautiful cliffs and beaches? (my reason for going)
