  1. Default Planning a road trip for a family of 6 adults for 6 days

    Hi, We are planning a road trip for 6 days departing from Los Angeles to go up the North Coast. Is LA to Portland, Oregon doable in 6 days or is it too rush? We would like to stop in a few places along the way. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    If it is too rush to do it in 6-7 days, do you suggest just to drive to San Francisco?
    Any recommendations along the route and places to eat/stay for a large group of people.
    Or a drive to Big Bear more doable and more things to see?

    Thank u!!!

    Default Group decision.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    It really depends on the pace the group as a whole are happy with, some might be OK with long hours in a vehicle and some not so. You don't say whether you plan to return to LA or if it is a one way trip ?

    It would be possible to drive to Portland over a couple of days on I 5 an then spend 4 or 5 days coming back down to LA and stopping at selected spots along the coast for a return journey, if it's one way you have more time to enjoy the ride up there.

    A 2 or 3 day trip to SF and then perhaps inland to Yosemite and Sequoia NP and back to LA would create a nice little loop, but it really is for you as a group to decide what is and what isn't too much and where you want to go, but in my opinion with that size group and if it is a round trip, Portland might equal to much time in the vehicle and not enough relaxing, but it is certainly doable
