The Oregon coast...

... I drive to Canada (vancouver) from Nor Cal twice a year always late spring and early fall. this year because of a family function I'm going in July. I 5 thru central ca. and 97 thru central oregon could/will be blazing hot. I'm thinking about going up the 101 for cooler temps. anyone have any opinions about the Oregon coast in july ? weather ? speed of traffic ? I have never drove that route, but know the Oregon coast is a destination in itself not just a pass thru.

I drove the entire Oregon coast the end of July and early August and my wife and daughters wore light sweaters on the beach and it was cool at night. That sea air near the coast seems to cool things down. However, I am not an expert on the area and perhaps a local can give you even more detail. Either way, you know it will be absolutely beautiful!!!

We go to Florence every year or two and as iluvuk mentioned it will be cool most of the time.

It will also be a bit slow going on highway 101 as you go through several small towns but it's all good road. I'd suggest getting reservations if you can as t's a very popular destination in the summer.

Temps daytime in the 70-80 range ..cooler in the evening. 2lane major highways but .. not the fast way north. You go through all of the small towns 45 - 30 mph but they are small so you are quickly through. Youíll add some extra hours for sure but beautiful scenery!

Oregon Coast.

ONE WORD....make reservations online for state parks way in advance if possible? #2 Never drive the Oregon coast in a hurry, as there is just way to much to see or miss if you do hurry. Great Stop is the Coos Bay Casino for RV & dry camp also....Florence Casino for RV/dry camp. Most parks are State run and there are a few federal parks on the 101 HWY as well. Do your home work before you leave home and it will pay off. JMHO Rick.
P.S. The reason there are trees in Oregon?? IT RAINS! LOL Oregon coast is not warm like Southern California coast.

It will be slow and cool as mentioned above. U.S. 97 through central Oregon is usually in the 40’s at night and mid 80’s during the day. 97 is high desert country so not as hot as you might think, it is also much faster. Lots of fun stuff to see no matter which way you go.

I agree 100%.

It does not get blazing hot anywhere in Washington and Oregon. Made that trip many times as a child before there was an interstate and cars did not have AC.

Now spend winters near Las Vegas and summers in Washington and Oregon on the coast and inland.

I avoid the interstate unless I am going to a funeral. Covered all of 101 in a MH. Just not all in one trip.

Only drove short stretches of I-5 in the MH.

So if you have the time to enjoy the drive I highly recommend any part of it. It does get exhausting after a while.

Yep, it never gets too hot in inland Oregon, except for the time I was riding in 111 deg temps in NE Oregon a fews years back. I was on a motorcycle trip with 3 other guys and thought I was doing fine until we stopped for gas and I was shivering, feeling the cold.
