There are small modest motels available if you would like to stay overnight. From the Westhills of Portland the trip takes about 90 minutes.
If you wanted to explore the area on your own, Lincoln City on the central Oregon coast is about a one hour drive to the south on Hwy 101. Cannon Beach, which is lovely is about 75 minutes to the north on Hwy 101. Oceanside is home to the beautiful Three Capes, Cape Mears, Cape Lookout and Cape KIwanda. Tillamook is a stinky little cow town with great cheese!
