PDX Trip-- Up I-5 Down Coast / Fruit Loop?

emkay | Jun 19, 2006 03:22 PM

I'm going to be doing an oregon road trip next week, and have a few questions:

*Is the Hood River Fruit Loop worth doing on a Thursday (or at all)? Are there any producers there (or elsewhere in the vicinity that I should make a special point of visiting or avoiding?

*I think we're going to be around the Oregon Vortex in Gold hill around lunch time one day. Any rec's in the area?

*We'll probably need to stop for the night somewhere around Salem. Give or take 15 miles, any suggestions?

*The coast seems pretty well documented, so I won't ask too much-- only a general seafood question-- what in particular are the summer catches that really worth getting? Also, are the summer oysters of a lesser quality than the fall/winter ones?

Also, FWIW, we'll be travelling with a generally well behaved 3 year old.

Thanks!
