I'm planning a 7 day birthday roadtrip from SFO to Victoria in August. And I'm already wondering if that's too ambitious. The trip is for me and my boyfriend, both young adults (mid/late 20s). We'd likely fly into SFO (from NYC) and rent a car there. I'd love to visit Portland, Seattle, and Victoria at the very least, but I wouldn't mind exploring Napa on my way up to the Pacific Northwest. From what I read it makes sense to leave the car in Seattle and take a train or ferry into BC. We would probably have to drive back to SFO to return the car and fly home. In terms of activities, I love a mix bag: natural attractions, touristy stuff, wineries, water is a must (beach), and local spots.
This sounds like a lot even as I type, but I'm early in planning and am more than open to suggestions or tips. Is 7 days enough?
