I am planning my 3-week trip to the West Coast for next June, I'll be travelling from Italy with my husband and 7-year-old daughter.
We'll be landing in San Francisco and, before heading to Yosemite and other national parks in Utah and Arizona, I would like to travel to Crater Lake (always been a dream of mine, never made it to CL in my 2 previous trips to Oregon).
My question: which are the best places to visit on the way to CL and back? We enjoy parks, landscapes, historic places. We are not particularly fond of hiking.
How much time should we consider, including the visit to the Park? We are not planning to sleep in the park itself and we don't mind driving long hours.
