Oregon Coast road trip - 2TravelDads

With so many ways to do a road trip you can take almost any approach. We just did it with two kids so we are ready to share exactly how to get the most from the Oregon Coast. Doing an Oregon Coast road trip is really fun and very easy. There are zero chances to get lost and 1000 opportunities to fall in love with the nature and nautical sights along the way.

Have you done the Oregon Coast with kids? Want to see what we did to keep them entertained as well as give us parents things to look forward to with each stop? Here’s how you do an Oregon Coast road trip with kids that’s good for the whole family no matter the season.

The Oregon Coast is gorgeous… even in the foggy rain which you might experience any time of year. When you’re packing for an Oregon Coast road trip be sure to plan for hot sun as well as chilling wet. As a rule when we’re touring around Western Washington or Oregon we always pack equally for rain or sun, erring on the side of the time of year. This includes activities we bring with us.

Like with any itinerary, take this one with a grain of salt and update it for your own family. We like to visit beaches, breweries and lighthouses, so this Oregon Coast road trip itinerary has a healthy mixture of nature and culture. And like any jaunt through small town America, you’ll be tempted to stop in places we don’t mention and to find your own foodie spots. Go for it! Road tripping is all about fun and new experiences and the Oregon Coast is no exception!

How sweet! The staff chair is in holding the umbrella for it.

The Red Chair’s story started on Cape Cod in the spring of 2012. This lucky chair has surfed the waves off Nantucket, explored the cranberry bogs of Chatham, enjoyed the view from Nobska Light in Falmouth, watched the grist mill turn at Stony Brook in Brewster and the sun set over Menemsha.  The chair has traveled all over New England, from Maine to Rhode Island all on the kindness of America’s friendly B&B’s. At each stop, the Red Chair is introduced to all that is memorable and beautiful about the local area, with a B&B owner as the chair’s concierge. Traveling is about getting outside of the everyday and seeing the world with fresh eyes. Through the journey of the Red Chair, we are all travelers off the beaten track where true relaxation awaits. The Red Chair has traveled to over 20 states with nearly 500 innkeepers acting as concierges.  BedandBreakast.com has partnered with the Red Chair Travels to keep the journey alive!  And now the Red Chair has started its journey through Oregon and will visit more than 20 inns of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild.  Follow Red as it visits The Seven Wonders of Oregon, the Bed and Breakfasts in Oregon’s Wine Country, Mt Hood, Crater Lake and all points in between.  We know you’ll enjoy the ride and hope you are inspired to travel to the places, and inns, that Red visits.
