From an East Coast girl, I'm looking for suggestions and feedback on the tentative itinerary I have. Two of the top things we want to do is explore the Redwoods do some wine country and spend 3 days in San Francisco. We are mid 40's and love the outdoors but also the city vibe. My bf lived in Portland for 10 years so he's pretty familiar with the west coast.
Here's what I was thinking, keeping in mind we don't want to spend more than 3 hours or so from destination to destination.
Arrive Seattle Aug 16 stay with friend
Day in Seattle Aug 17
Hop train to Portland Aug 18 stay at Crystal hotel
Day in Portland Aug 19
Drive to Brandon Aug 20 (no place to stay yet)
Day in Redwoods ending in Crescent City (not sure if this is realistic) Aug 21
On road to Napa Sonoma Aug 22 (no place chosen yet)
Day in Napa Aug 23
Day in Sonoma Mendocino area Aug 24
On road to Carmel at Tinkle Pink hotel Aug 25
Day in Carmel then head to SF Aug 26 stay in apartment
San Francisco Aug 27-Aug 29
Fly out SF Aug 30
I appreciate anyone's thoughts and feedback!
Thanks so much!
