One of the things we always did on our summer family visits to Oregon was head to the coast for a couple nights. This gave Mom and DAd a little break from us and all the commotion for a couple days and we got to enjoy one of Oregon's treasures. We usually ended up around Lincoln City---about 45 minutes away from our base of Dallas, Oregon, where my family lived.
This year we stayed at Ocean Terrace Condos. They aren't fancy, but the views are pretty spectacular.
