Pacific Coast Tour
Quaint curio shops, rocky cliffs and turn-of-the-century lighthouses are just a few of the treasures you'll find along the Pacific Coast Highway, which runs the length of the Oregon coast. From Portland, head west to Astoria, Oregon's northernmost coastal town. An industrious port in the late 1800s, Astoria was once home to wealthy shipping moguls. Today, you can visit the Victorian mansions and turn-of-the-century buildings for a healthy dose of Pacific Northwest history. From there, head south along Highway 101 to the resort town of Seaside, the famous cheese factory in Tillamook or the renowned Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport - no matter where you go, Oregon's dramatic coastline is sure to please.
Oregon Wine Country
Let the tourists flock to Napa and Sonoma - and enjoy a slower pace in Oregon's Willamette Valley wine country. A verdant river valley running from Eugene to Portland, Oregon's largest wine region is known for impeccable pinot noir, as well as picturesque scenery and a rustic, laid-back feel - perfect for RV rentals. Eugene is a great place to start your trip. Take the old Lorane Highway west from Eugene to Territorial Road, where you'll find fabulous vintners like King Estates and Secret House. From there, head north to Highway 99, which wends its way through dozens of great wineries like Benton-Lane and Eola Hills. In all, the Willamette Valley region includes some 300 wineries - so there's always something new to try.
If you think Oregon is all rainy days and Douglas Firs, think again. Located around four hours southeast of Portland, Bend is actually a high-desert delight in the heart of Central Oregon. From the famed skiing of Mount Bachelor to the rugged wilderness of the Three Sisters Mountains, nature's at your doorstep all year here. Try a trip to Lava River Caves, Oregon's longest lava tube. This one-mile-deep cave is full of adventure, yet safe for casual hiking. For more advanced hikes - and some of the best rock climbing around - head to Smith Rock, an expansive state park featuring stunning volcanic formations in a steep river canyon.
No matter where your journey takes you, it's hard to go wrong with RV rentals. Oregon is full of great state parks, RV parks and campgrounds, so it's always easy to find a place to stay. And with a motorhome rental from Cruise America, you'll have a comfortable trip rain or shine. From Portland to Eugene and beyond, you can have it all with RV rentals, Oregon's best-kept secret for great travel.
