Hope to get some advice about a road trip I'm going on in six weeks from San Francisco to Portland.
Got two weeks in the states and want to spend about 4/5 days driving between San Francisco and Portland, setting off on the Tuesday June 3rd morning and arriving the following Saturday/Sunday, spending a few days in Portland before heading to Seattle. The itinerary is fairly flexible so far.
I'm doing the roadtrip solo and looking to find some strange and scenic sites along the way. I currently live in London so comfortable navigating my way around.
A few questions:
-Is 4/5 days enough time to not drive too much and see some sites?
-Do I need to book accommodation in advance or can I do it as I go along? I was planning to work out each days route the night before, but not sure if that'll work.
-Any thoughts on budget per day? I was thinking about $150 for accommodation and food (excluding petrol and car)
-What are some good sites along the way?
-What is a good resource to plan which roads to take? I'd like to stick to the coast for some of it.
Hope people can help out, many thanks in advance
