Please be a bit more specific. Two to three days from where to where?

That will help the experts give you great recommendations.

OOps - I see you have it in your title but not the body.

Start with driving from Portland to Cannon Beach, then up to Astoria. Both those towns are scenic and Astoria has a lot of history. At Cannon Beach be sure to go up to Ecola State Park. In Astoria visit the Maritime Museum.

In Washington you will want to go to Kalaloch and Lake Quinalt and Hurricane Ridge, but I'm sure you've posted on Washington forum. I think it would be fun to arrive in Seattle on a ferry - very impressive.

Add Cape Disappointment State Park to IluvOregon's list.

I'm a little hesitant to answer your questions, because I think your itinerary and trip length don't allow time for what many think is the best of the Pacific Northwest: the Oregon coast. The route suggested by IluvOregon includes just a small piece of it, but is probably the only sensible one, given your time constraints.

You can fit in a bit of the northern Oregon coast, then maybe hightail it up to Olympic Nat'l Forest. Suggest you also post on the Washington forum :-)
