Portland is undeniably rad, but even the coolest of the cool need to take a break to get away sometimes. A road trip down the West Coast into San Francisco is just what the doctor ordered... and along the way, you'll pass by more awesome hidden gems than you thought possible!

Okay, the World of Speed Car Museum might seem super niche, but hear me out: this attraction is legit. They have displays on all kinds of aspects of speed, from women in racing to boats and motorcycles to racing in music, and tons more. It's one of those places that, if you stop in, you won't regret visiting.

Want to stretch your legs and get some fresh air before hopping back in the car and hitting the pavement again? The Umpqua National Forest is nearly 100,000 acres of pure, wild Oregon beauty. Verdant waterfalls, dense, shady thickets of woodland, rushing rivers, incredible wildlife, and tons more can be found within. Take a scenic drive through, pull over for a hike, or find a campground somewhere in the forest and enjoy!

Camp Shasta Restaurant & Coffee Co.

The Mount Shasta region of California is totally quirky, with lots of farms, outdoor-lovers, and funky, New Age vibes. Camp Shasta Restaurant and Coffee Co. is part thrift store, part breakfast spot... so after your coffee, bacon and eggs, you can browse for a totally bizarre and one-of-a-kind souvenir.

OMG candy! The Jelly Belly factory is in Fairfield, just north of San Francisco, and they offer tours where you can peek inside the jelly bean-making process. Sure, it's not quite Willy Wonka's infamous candy factory, but you won't leave a blueberry... and you can stock up on rare Jelly Belly flavors!

San Francisco at last! The drive from Portland is quite the adventure, but there's no shortage of things to see and do in SF. Incredible dining, natural coastal beauty, rich history, and superlative cultural institutions all await in the City by the Bay.
