Oregon Coast Itinerary

We will meet at our hotel for the evening by the airport. After settling in we will have a group meet and greet to go over the week’s events before retiring to our rooms for the evening.

Today we will visit the home of the Goonies. We will visit several of the iconic movie sites, explore this lovely little town and enjoy a breathtaking sunset from the shores overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Some additional places we will visit include the Oregon Film Museum, the jailhouse from the movie, Astoria Brewing Company, and many additional shops.

*Astoria is a port city in Oregon, United States. It is the main setting in The Goonies. It was named after Fort Astoria, set up by American Fur Company investor John Jacob Astor.

The town is divided into two parts: the Goon Docks, the poorer, working-class side, and the “Hillside”, the richer side.

The working name for the town The Goonies was set in was Cauldron Point, possibly based on the location of the same name. The Goonies was filmed on location in Astoria in 1984; buildings and locations featured in the film still exist and are visited by fans from across the globe. The city houses the Oregon Film Museum, with a section dedicated to The Goonies, housing props from the film and providing information on its production. June 7th to the 10th is Astoria’s annual “Goonies Day” celebration, with multiple Goonies-themed activities across the city.

We will start the day with a beautiful drive down the coastal highway. We have several stops along the way but our goal is to spend the afternoon taking in Cannon Beach. This beautiful town has so much to offer, from shopping, beach combing, hiking, and some of the prettiest sunsets around. This will be a day not to forget!

*Cannon Beach is a city in Clatsop County, Oregon, United States. Its population was 1,690 at the 2010 census. It is a popular coastal Oregon tourist destination, famous for Haystack Rock, a 235 ft sea stack that juts out along the coast. In 2013, National Geographic listed it as “one of the world’s 100 most beautiful places.”

This morning we continue our epic drive down the coastline with a stop to see the Sea Lion Caves before heading inland to see Crater Lake National Park. After a hike in the park, we will check into our hotel for the night.

*Sea Lion Caves is a privately owned wildlife preserve and bird sanctuary (since 1932) centrally located on the beautiful and rugged Oregon Coast. It is America’s largest sea cave and the year-round home of the Steller sea lion.

Today we get to spend all day in the Beautiful Crater Lake National Park. We will have several hikes and plenty of time to explore this wonderful place.

*Crater Lake inspires awe. Native Americans witnessed its formation 7,700 years ago when a violent eruption triggered the collapse of a tall peak. Scientists marvel at its purity—fed by rain and snow, it’s the deepest lake in the USA and one of the most pristine on Earth. Artists, photographers, and sightseers gaze in wonder at its blue water and stunning setting atop the Cascade Mountain Range.

The historic Rim Drive includes 33 miles of lake views, panoramic vistas, forests, and meadows. The contours of the road were designed to complement the natural landscape and disappear from view as you look across the lake from any point.

Along the way, there are 30 overlooks with ample car parking, which provide opportunities to stop for views of the lake and caldera. Rim Drive provides access to five picnic areas, hikes of various difficulties, geologic formations, and several waterfalls.

Steep Hikes

We will head out first thing in the morning to head up to Mt Hood. Oregon’s tallest peak. We will spend the day hiking around the mountain and exploring the park for all it has to offer.

*There are 13 volcanic mountains in the Cascade Range that stretch from northern Washington through Oregon and into northern California. Mount Hood, which last erupted in 1781, sits approximately in the center of the chain.

William Clark first noticed the large peak on October 19, 1805, and he wrote, “a conical mountain S.W. topped with Snow.” But not until after they had passed it did the captains realize it was the mountain that Lieutenant William Broughton of the Vancouver expedition had mapped and named in 1791 for British Admiral Sir Samuel Hood.

As the Corps of Discovery traveled through The Dalles of the Columbia in 1805, Clark referred to the majestic mountain as “Timm or falls Mountain.” But on the Expedition’s return trip in 1806, the British name, Mount Hood, was used.

After our morning hike in the park we will start making our way back to Portland. Before we get there, we will get to visit one of the most photographed waterfalls in the Northwest. After we check into our hotel, we will head out on the town for our final group dinner!

*Oregon’s tallest waterfall (620 ft.) is just 30 minutes east of Portland and 30 minutes west of Hood River. Offering scenic splendor and a gateway to the Gorge’s Waterfall Corridor, the waterfall is the most visited outdoor attraction in the Pacific Northwest due to its constant flow and proximity to the Historic Columbia River Highway. The falls are fed by rainwater and snowmelt, and its steady stream runs year-round, making it a four-season attraction. The highest volume comes in winter and spring, and the waterfall sometimes freezes partially at the height of winter.
