Have a tentative plan already to see both Arches and Yellowstone National Parks. Here's the trip so far: roadtrippers.com/trips/51a66...
I have 3 weeks and am very open to changing the route along the way. I'm into photography so places that are fun to take pictures of are a must, also really like architecture. Any suggestions?
My wife and I are going to do a road trip around Oregon in September for our anniversary and are looking for suggestions of nice places to stay in the Mount Hood area. We won't be bringing camping gear, so looking for a nice little hotel or B&B in the area with good views and opportunities for hiking and nature.
I plan to visit Oregon and California next july, arriving through Portland.
Can I buy a phone somewhere with a sim card, and at a reasonable price so that people I know may reach me ? I don't need to have lots of time on advanced purchase, that's mostly to receive calls. Can I buy it even if I'm a European visitor ? Where are the best deals ?
Need a one night hotel by Amtrak Station/Union Station so I am close to walk with my rolling suitcase the next day to the train. thanks
We are going to be staying in the park in loop L in site L24 and we are wondering if this site is in the trees and if it is a nice site and is the beach within walking distance?
We are going on an organized cycling tour the 3rd week of June, but will arrive 3 days before the trip begins. We will be bringing our bicycles and will be staying in a B&B in Southeast Portland. Which trails are the best ones to go on?
We are going to the 41st. BMW Motorcycle Rally from July 18 to 21, 2013 in Salem, Oregon. We want to know which scenic roads are best going down the coast of Washington/Oregon to Salem for the event and then which roads to take going east from Salem, Oregon into Montana and up again to Waterton National Park on the US/Canada border. We will be entering the USA near Abbotsford British Columbia. We want to stay away from major highways as much as possible.....any ideas? Of course we will be riding our motorcycles.Do not know the area at all and would like to take in the best scenery that we can. We have two weeks in total.
Hi We will be on a road trip in a couple of weeks time and will get to spend 1 day 1 night in Portland. Can someone provide us recommendation on the top must-see? (Already booked accommodation and we will have a rented car to go around). Keen to explore good places for food where locals go. So hope to get recommendations on this too (already making plans to go for Voodoo doughnuts!) =) Thanks!
Hello, my son is going to have an interview at OHSU. My questions are: 1) What neighborhood is OHSU located? We are thinking about bidding for a hotel room online, but don't know which neighborhood(s) should we check from the list. 2)Does anyone have recommendation for inexpensive stay near OHSU and with convenient public transportation to/from OHSU? Thanks.
I'm going to be in Portland the first week of January with a bunch of foodies. Does anyone have a must-visit restaurant, gastro-pub, food shack, that they recommend? thanks
hi :) im from southern california and was wondering if anyone could tell me what to expect weather wise ( other than rain, rain, and more rain :) Being from a warm climate i only have casual clothing and i love to dress pinup..(ha! that sounds so stupid.. but hey, i love the whole vintage look.. and it's huge and not silly at all down here. most of my wardrobe is bettie page inspired. bah) my new bf is from here, is used to the cold and well lets face it, he's a guy and has no clue as to what to advice me to bring.. I was just wondering if it's completely ridiculous to bother bringing any of my usual dresses in january... hopefully someone can answer this without making fun. ;p although i dont mind it.. thanks :p kim
We would like to spend 10 days touring Oregon by car. We will fly from FL. to a central city (perhaps Portland) although this is not definite Please tell us what not to miss in Oregon.
Hi. We'll be taking the train from London to Paris and will arrive at the Gare du Nord station mid-day. We have three days and will rely on public transport. Ideas for great and reasonable hotel in an easy-to-get-to and then easy-to-get-to-DeGaulle neighborhood? Great food and people? Thanks so much for any advice.
If you were going to spend a few days in a b&b along the NW Oregon coast, what little village or town would you recommend? Somewhere not totally 'desolate', but not so much hubbub. :) Thanks in advance! Pete
Want to take the wife somewhere to camp in Bend this summer. Would like to set up a tent with water nearby we can be be in. Plan on using a tent. A decent amount of privacy would be nice too. Any thoughts?
Anyone gone tent camping at Crater Lake? Planning on going for 3 days around Aug 1st. Is the wood on the ground plentiful or would I be better off buying it at the local store? Any electrical outlets for the tent sites? Is the store priced reasonably or should I bring my own groceries? Which sites are close to the bathrooms? Any insights on camping there would be greatly appreciated.
My boyfriend and I are coming to Oregon for 5 nights in mid August. We've been to Portland a few times. We are stay one night in city for a client dinner. Then we want to head out the next afternoon to the Coast or maybe Crater Lake. It's become a daunting task trying to figure out where to go. We want scenic drive/s and I was thinking we would do the coast but it looks like we need to narrow down where because it's just too big. I have read to go to Astoria, Cannon Beach, Cape Perpetua, Gold Beach. We want to see the beauty of the coast, check out cool small towns that are not touristy, love a great hotel with a view, local restaurants. We are active - hike, run, swim (although, heard it's too cold in pacific). Need help. What are the most scenic towns? We dont mind driving between them - just dont want to drive 3 hours a day.
which of the following has a better/more central location? The Eastside lodge, Days inn (North Whitaker)),Kennedy school or The La Quinta (NW Yeon)?
My husband and I are going to Silver Falls State Park at the end of May and will work our way to Umpqua National Forest. Then to Roseburg area and Medford area. I need advice with scenic route info and hotel choices in those areas. Thanks you!
Coming to Portland next week. is there an easy way to go the coast for a day trip via public trans? Cheers NYTim
I'm thinking of coming down either Thursday the 26th or Friday the 27th with my wife. it will be our first real Portland visit (from Seattle area). Any tips on how foot-based tourists could enjoy themselves? local hotel you'd recommend, maybe near a good night club or two? we like to dance, drink, explore cultural areas, and are considering hitting the Portland Center Stage for live theater one night as well. Any tips? we're not so much the t-shirt and baseball cap type tourists....as much as we prefer the nitty gritty. good night clubs, dive cafe's, where the locals romp. thanks guys :) IronTitus
What would be the most economical mode of transportation from Heathrow to Dover? We will have luggage. If there is a better way other than out of Heathrow, please include that info as well.
Is late July a good time weather-wise to have a family reunion here, and where is the best site for our reunion?
We have a VRBO rental for 2 nights in Brookings (on our way to San Fran) and would like to hear some ideas for eating dinner nearby? We have a rental car.... Fresh seafood is always appreciated maybe with good views? Also any fantastic parks or hot springs nearby?
We are planning to travel by Amtrak from Vancouver, BC to Eugene, but we really want to get to Ashland to visit family. Can you tell us how to get from the Amtrak station in Eugene to Ashland, please! thanks
We will be staying at Seal Rock in a vacation rental for 2 nights and are wondering if there any fave restaurants from the VT folk in the area? We will have a rental car so anything within about a 30 minute drive maybe? As to other things to do, we are considering Tillamook Cheese factory (good idea?) any other must sees along this area of the coast?
Can I visit Silver Falls and Ramona Falls in 1 day? I'm trying to research visiting these 2 waterfall areas to snap a few quick photos and get it all done in 1 day. I am also looking for a tour company that would handle both areas in particular (and maybe even Multnomah Falls too) for a reasonable sum for 1-2 people. I've already looked at Eco tours of Oregon and they can offer a private tour for around750/9 hours (!!! and not sure if they handle all 3 waterfalls) but wondering if there were other possibilities for someone who doesn't drive.
I've been handed the delightful task as best man and thought of hosting it in Oregon for a weekend getaway in June. I've heard of the Dune Buggy's so that's a good start. We are a group of +_ 10 mature males, ranging 30-39 and enjoy the outdoors. Could you recommend some fun activities to do (No strippers)? We may do it as a group or I may give them options and they can split up in groups. I'm looking for good restaurants, non-franchised, Oregon touch to it (chowder maybe) for lunches and dinner we don't mind good steaks. We'll most likely do a club night too. Are there any major events, concerts that are going on in June thatI can plan this around? Thanks for your time and help. Best Man
We are flying into Seattle and then driving down to San Fransisco, and we have a week (this probably in May 2012). Any must stop-overs/great local places to eat/cool inexpensive places to stay? Especially some hot springs not too far from the coast? Thanx in advance------
I am going to be visiting Portland in February (amongst other places) and wondered if anyone could advise me on the best things to see. I am estimating about 3-5 days will be spent there before I leave to San Francisco (is this too many?). I also wondered what the weather would be like? I am interested in interesting/unusual tours, music, art/history museums and book shops. I am an avid walker and am also keen to know how easy it is to get around Portland by foot (and occasional public transport). The tours don't have to be city tours - if there are day trips from Portland that you think shouldn't be missed? many thanks in advance
