Need some hints, what a MUST see is in March in Oregon?!
DW has 2 weeks Vacation coming, since we don't want to just drive, we like to head down to OR and take part of the coast Highway in (going south to Florence, crossing back to Eugene), leave the rest for another trip or when Fulltiming in a little over a year. We know, it's not much time for this Highway to see and the coast, but it is a start. We are not anymore into SNOW, so - can't go north or east. Any suggestions on MUST stop and see? Thanks for the tips. #1..... see MM
RV greetings

Here are a couple of places to consider:

The Tillamook Air Museum


The Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport.

After you tour teh Ari Museum, drive 3 or 4 miles north to the Tillamook Cheese factory and have soem ice cream. Good place to stop and easy parking.

Plan a stay at Ft Stevens state park. Walk the beach and visit the Wreck of the Peter Iredale. Then spend at least two or three days in the area touring Astoria to see the maritime museum, the Flavel house, the Astoria column, The Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, and the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center across the Columbia river at Cape Disappointment state park. Oh! be sure to bring rain gear.

Thank You all for the tips. Now I can do more research and get our sightseeing spots in....
Hopefully, we can travel many more years and get the rest of #101 in...... down the road!
Maybe we will meet along the oceanside somewhere
Happy RVing

There are many things to see and do along the Oregon Coast. There have been some great spots mentioned already. Pacific City is a nice easy beach access and Old Town Florence is great. Stay at the Port of Siuslaw and you are within walking distance of Old Town. Enjoy your trip and honk when you drive through Cloverdale, Oregon, everybodies friendly here.

March is a great month for whale watching along the coast. If you overnight in the Reedsport/Winchester Bay area make sure to see the Umpqua River lighthouse at night with its red and white light pattern.

You are looking at a great trip, but don't plan on much sunshine on the OR coast in March. You find some rain, more rain and some more rain. You may get some relieve from the liquid sunshine, but the coast is beautiful even in stormy weather.

If you golf, the Bandon Dunes is a must. The courses are top rated courses in the US.

Enjoy your trip out West.
