Vacation ideas?

Quick call for ideas - husband wants to go to the coast for a vacation. He's thinking Oregon or California, maybe the Newport area? They have a nice aquarium there.

Any ideas? Any 'must-sees' in that area? Or anywhere along the northern part of California/southern part of Oregon's coastline? Anyone between Southern Idaho and the coast want us to visit on the way through?

Um, Victoria's on the way, isn't it? ;) Or not... If you wanted to come north a bit (or well, a lot) I could give you lots of ideas, but I don't know much about that area. It sounds fun though!

If you can, Cardiff by the Sea in California is beautiful. There is also a Science Museum in Portland (I can't quite remember the name) that is totally worth a visit. Have fun!

OMSI that's what the museum is called. Even if you are just driving through and need a break, it is great!

Stop by and stay with us. It's about half-way to the coast. It'd be about 7 hours to here and another 8 to the coast!! Not that there's much to see here, but it'd be fun to see your family!!

We spent a lovely couple of weeks in the Carmel, Salinas, Monterey Bay area last year. It was really beautiful, and we went whale watching, so also educational and tons of fun. The Monterey Bay Aquarium at Cannery Row was awesome!
But, I also was really hoping to go further north and see the worlds tallest tree! Depending on the age of your kids, that could be really interesting too.
Can't wait to hear what you decide to do, I love trips!
