    How difficult is it to drive to Portland and to the coast? If I wanted to take a weekend trip with my 3 kids to Portland or to the coast, can I do this in a weekend or is it too far of a drive?

    Portland is very doable for a weekend. We drove through Portland to get to the coast. Portland is about 3 hours non stop driving. You just have to be aware of snow on the mountain pass in the winter. That can slow you down an hour or two easily. And 4 wheel drive would be very helpful in those conditions. An extra hour or so to the coast. We stayed in Seaside at an Airbnb. Cannon Beach is very nice.

    The drive to Portland is about 3 hours and driving to the coast is about 4-4.5. Really easy and beautiful drives unless the passes are covered in snow or ice. Best to check road conditions before you go anytime of the year. TripCheck is a good site
