Or first vacation since '06!
We'll be flying into Portland the middle of July and driving down to N. California, redwoods country.
We will stay in Eureka/Fortuna for a couple of days, not sure. If someone knows the area, we are open to suggestions on a good motel for a few days.
We would also love to hear of something that we shouldn't miss while there.

Some of my fondest memories were the several family vacations we had hitting all the Oregon State Parks along the coast. I agree that you should avoid I-5 and take some time to leisurely wander down the coast to Eureka...whether you camp or motel. I'm hoping that Oregon is keeping their State Parks open and functioning, California certainly is pounding ours ("we can't afford -------").

There's the Evergreen Aviation museum and water park which houses the 'Spruce Goose' in Mcminnville.About an hour South west of Portland on hwy-99.Then head to Mo's in lincoln city on the Coast for some Clam chowder.There is also Shinook winds Casino if that your thing.Then Continue heading south on Hwy-101 to Newport and the waterfront and Aquarium in Depot bay.
