Portland - Road Trip Ideas

Portland’s reputation as a haven for hipsters is well deserved. And among the tatts, hats, and ironic facial hair is a beautiful city, brimming with history and culture. When you pick up the keys to your car rental at Portland International Airport, you’ve got the power to explore this place and many, many more. Nestled neatly on the West Coast, Portland presents you with plenty of potential pathways. Head down state on a Portland to Crater Lake road trip or choose from cheap car rentals in Portland and cruise north to Canada. When you’ve got the keys, the choice is entirely yours.

Portland to Seattle

Take the scenic drive from Seattle to Portland for around 200 miles of motor meandering and maybe stop by a mountain or two. Book a one-way car rental from Portland to Seattle for the ultimate drive and fly. Zoom down Highway 101 to the coffee capital and hop back in under an hour by flying back. Stop off at Castle Rock for a hearty slice of old-school America or travel via Mossyrock for a more rural route. However you get there, make time for Pike Place Market when you arrive.

Portland to San Francisco

Pick your playlist, pack the snacks and grab the keys to your rental for a coastal road trip from Portland to San Francisco. Strap in for over 10 hours of open highway, glorious green scenery, and some epic skyscapes. When it’s time to stretch your legs, you can take your pick from Myrtle Creek, Red Bluff, and more. Or, why not break up the trip with a night under the canopy of Shasta Trinity National Forest. When you arrive, there is no shortage of shenanigans: ghost tours, food crawls, bars, bistros, bridges, San Fran has it all. Book a one-way car rental from Portland to San Francisco and cut your journey time considerably—the return flight is a little under 2 hours.
