@tothetop50 Umpqua River from Roseburg to Diamond Lake. Then climb Mt. Thielsen. (Not a technical climb.)
— Kyle Kivett (@kkivett) April 6, 2014
@kkivett also went on to suggest: Steens Mountain. Have a milkshake at the store in Fields, OR. Also heard great things about the steaks in Haines, OR and best idea: get the books of William Sullivan. Best hiking/guide book author for Oregon.
@tothetop50 Two more ideas: Powell's Books in Portland and the Music Coop record store in Ashland.

Rachael Kaapu came by our Twitter with a wealth of ideas:
For breakfast and/or lunch she suggested: @Saint_Honore bakery, a personal patisserie fave!
For dinner she added: Be sure to experience the Pacific NW, French-inspired Lyon Tasting Menu @HeathmanRest
@tothetop50 Early evening: reserve a table at Tacoma's north-end "The Lobster Shoppe". Copper River Salmon to die for!
