No problem ...... happy to.

1) Drive out HWY 30 to Astoria then do the Seaside turn around, maybe even Cannon Beach. Come back on HWY 26.

2) Go East out I-84. Stop by Cascade Locks Marine Park, there will be a sailing small boat regatta happening run by CGRA. Continue East to Hood River, have lunch at the local hot spot our by the wind surfers. There is a small restaurant out by this hot spot called the sandbar I think, owned by a local proffesional sailor named Morgan Larson. Go across the hood river bridge and then head back west on HWY 14, one of the funnest roads in a TDI.

For sure smaller trips will be on a list of things to do, however these close in activities make for better family fun for those wanting to stay "close" to fest.

As a native Astorian I should mention a few things to take in if you have the time/inclination while passing through the oldest town west of the Rockies... be warned, to do all of these would take most of a whole day....

1. Columbia River Maritime Museum ( Great Museum )
2. Astor Column ( One of the best views on the whole coast )
3. Flavel House
4. Uppertown Fire Fighters Museum
5. Fort George Brewery and Public House
6. Cape Disappointment across the river in WA
7. Fort Clatsop ( replica of fort where Lewis and Clark stayed during winter of 1806 )

If scrunched for time my .02 cents would be at least the Maritime Museum, the Astor Column and the Fort George Brewpub if you're into good beer ( order the sampler tray )
