My partner and I are taking a romantic road trip (if such a thing exists) up the Pacific Northwest this summer and we would love local suggestions of things to do, see, and eat!
  1. Must see tourist stuff?
  2. Off the beaten path stuff?
  3. All things fun, active, unexpected, or yummy
  4. Crater Lake National Park

  5. Silver Falls State Park in Oregon

    There's a 9-mile loop hike that goes by 10 waterfalls. But you can do a shorter 2 or 3 mile hike to hit some of them. Totally beautiful.

  6. Oregon Shakespeare Festival
    One of the largest Shakespeare festivals in the nation. (Maybe the largest?)

  7. Willamette valley wine country is a must! Backroads wine tours gave me and my hubby a kickass private guided tour of 4 wineries and it was awesome.

  11. Multnomah Falls and Oneonta Gorge
    Multnomah is a pretty popular location along the Columbia River less than an hour from Portland. But the really cool spot is a couple of miles up the road at Oneonta where you climb over a huge log jam and wade through chest deep water to get to a hidden waterfall. I won't lie: I found it kind of terrifying at the time, but I think of it very fondly now.
