I was hoping that I could get some advice off of some knowledgeable road tripers!
My boyfriend and I have started to plan a trip flying into Vancouver, driving down to San Diego and then flying home. We have 16 days (17 if you count the day we leave the UK). I'm cabin crew for BA so I thought some driving would make a nice change to flying!
What I would like to know is how realistic those in the know think this time scale is? I've never been this far west in the US and never to canada so I would like to see things from outside the car too!
There are some things and places I have heard about and would really like to see:
The pacific rim of Vancouver Island
Mt St Helen
Carmel (my name sake)
Miami art deco
but I would be extremely grateful for any suggestions of things to see or do. I really love the chance to see and experience new things.
We want to start our journey around the last week of August.
One last piece of advice - my boyfriend (Alex) is absolutely set on driving around in a classic convertible !! What are your thoughts? And if it's something that can be done where on earth do you get one from!
I look forward to your wise words!
