Timing and best overnight stops???
9:24 am, today
I am putting together an 18 day road trip for mid September and am not sure exactly which places deserve more than one night and which towns to choose for the overnighters and longer. So far this is the very rough plan. We do not plan to camp or hike....only strolling walks and motels, exploring, photography. PLEASE ADVISE
Driving from airport to Mendocino/ Fort Bragg area 1 night
North to Fortuna, Eureka or Arcata for exploring, including Ave of the Giants 2 nights?
Through Redwood Natl/ State Parks to Crescent City 1 night?
Longer drive to Florence OR for bog walkways, lighthouse views, dune tour, sea lion caves 2 nights?
To Portland for 2 nights?
Drive to Lake Quinault Lodge for lunch then to Forks 1 night?
Tacoma for car and glass museums 1 night?
Seattle 3 nights and fly home
