  1. Default First Big Roadtrip! - SF to Seattle

    Hi all,
    I'm an east-coaster heading out west for a roadtrip in September. I've got about 6 days to drive from San Fran to Seattle. My plan is to stay mainly on 101, shooting off a couple times eastward. I would like to make it up to Portland/Columbia River area or Yakima by the 4th or 5th night, as I plan to do some white water rafting. Hoping for some suggestions on sights to see, places to stay, and activities to do along the way. Thanks!

    That's a very reasonable period of time -- Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! Here are some ideas:

    Crater Lake & some of those "eastward" detours mentioned above.

    thank you Mark for the welcome, and the links! would you say 5 to 7 hours driving each day is reasonable or a stretch? the way i've planned this trip out, i'm wanting to stop for the night in certain towns and this is what it's coming to for driving times...
