Late summer is the perfect time to enjoy both sun and sand at the majestic Oregon coast. Part of the joy is the journey, not just the destination, so click through our album to find six quick stops along the way, from Portland to the coast. They’ll alleviate your kids’ backseat boredom, fend off rumbling tummies and cure them of the worst case of the wiggles.
This time of year, peaches are truly ripe for the picking. Call or visit their website to be sure they're open for U-picking and bring your own container. Another side note, they only accept cash. It may sound involved, but once you get there you'll know it's all worth it. Fresh, ripe, peaches, apples and (later in the month) pears pulled right off some low hanging trees? Yes, please!
