My husband and I are visiting the states for 3 weeks in September. Two of those weeks will be taken up visiting family in LA and Sacramento, and the drive from LA to Sacramento (which will probably be a direct route as we did HWY 1 via San Fran (and Yosemite / I-5 on the return leg) last year. Was amazing....
Anyway, we've booked our flights home to Ireland from Seattle and we hope to have a week between leaving Sacramento and flying home to see some of the sights. Personally, I'd love to do HWY 1 all the way from San Fran, but I don't know if this is realistic or not? Plus maybe there are great things to see along the way if we took I-5? We'd also love to get as far as Vancouver, and if possible Vancouver Island - but we'd have to get back to Seattle again in the time.
We are completely free of all plans at this stage, nothing is booked except the flights - so I am hoping that some of you can provide some good advice on what to take in or suggest some itinereries. Tips on affordable accommodation and good food to be had would also be greatly appreciated
This is a great site btw!
