The Magnificent Oregon Coast

A Scenic 10-Day Road Trip

U.S. Highway 101 runs 363 miles through Oregon, from the south bank of the Columbia River to the California border, mostly hugging the Pacific coast. You could drive it in a day, but that would be missing the point. The route offers glorious views of the Pacific around nearly every bend; dozens of state parks with broad, sandy beaches and rugged headlands; and small towns with galleries, curiosity shops and waterfront diners that serve wonderful fresh-caught seafood.

And then, of course, there's the wine country, where pinot noir is king. Here's an ideal 10-day itinerary recommended by the Andrew Harper Travel Office that showcases some of the best of this surprising state.
