A friend and I are taking a road trip starting in Durango, CO and heading to San Fran. We're not really making any stops as the West Coast is our ultimate destination. Once we reach San Fran, we will take our time going North (we have about 11 days). My questions are: along this path what is worth seeing and what can be turned down? We are interested in a National Park or two, vineyards, beaches, and campgrounds. Also, any restaurants or tourist attractions worth checking out?
We have about a month and a half to plan, and we are already both overwhelmed with the amount of options. Just looking for a way to narrow them down. Thanks!!
