I am organizing the summer cruise for NW Club Cobra. We’re doing another Oregon Coastal Cruise . Please see the following for all the details:
When: Friday July 26 thru Sunday July 28, 2019
Where: Starting in Lakewood, WA – at the McDonald’s parking lot off SR512 and I-5 (10417 Pacific Hwy SW, Tacoma, WA 98499), ending in Florence, Oregon. I plan to be at McDonald’s no later than 8 AM.
What: This will be 3 days of more fun filled Cobra adventure! The plan is to leave the Park & Ride on Fri. July 26 @ 9 AM. We will head South towards Montesano and then down to Astoria OR. Montesano will be a Pitstop (fuel and potty break) and Dismal Nitch Rest Area (along the Columbia River just before we cross over the bridge to Astoria) will be a potty break. We will then continue to Seaside, Oregon where we will stay at the Hi-Tide Oceanfront Inn. We should arrive in Seaside around lunch time. You can then explore all that Seaside has to offer. We can make reservations somewhere for a group dinner if you are interested.
Saturday, July 27, 2019 we will leave Seaside as a group and head South on the Coast Hwy 101 to Tillamook where we will stop for a tour of the Tillamook Dairy & sample fresh cheese, & ice cream. Our next stop is Newport, Oregon for lunch. A great place to eat is the Newport Café. Once back on the road, we'll travel to Florence, Oregon. which is the final destination. Our accommodations are at the River House Inn. There will be plenty of time to explore Old Town Florence and take in all the local attractions or hit the Three Rivers Casino to pay for the cruise. We can plan on a group dinner at one of the restaurants or the casino. If anybody has some thoughts or recommendations for dinner, please post.
Sunday, July 28, 2019 we will leave Florence at 8:30 AM and head back up Hwy 101 to Waldport, Oregon where we leave Hwy 101 and take Hwy 34 toward Corvallis, Oregon and I5. We can grab lunch in Corvallis. Then off towards Portland where off towards home on I-5 Northbound.
I have made reserved a block of rooms for Seaside and Florence. I recommend making reservations early. Rooms book up fast during this time of year. Both Inns will block off parking for our Cobras. Parking at both Inns is not covered. I would bring a car cover in case it is misty.

If you have never driven 101 in a Cobra you are missing out! I think everyone will have a great time. It is hard to beat the views and twisty roads that we will be driving. Especially Hwy 34 from Waldport to I5. Please make your reservations early and post if you will be joining us on the trip.
