Heading southwest on hwy 6 leads you to the coastal town of Tillamook. Along the way you past through an area of some of the worst forest fires in Oregon’s history and a forest center that remembers those days. Once at the coast you can see the site of the “town that washed into the sea”, the last hanger that held the blimps from WW 2, a creamery with a new visitor center, and a drive up the Oregon coast to Cannon Beach before returning to Portland.
