I and a couple friends will be travelling to the west coast for the first time, so decided to start with San Francisco (visit a few days) and the roadtrip to Portland Oregon, which we planned to do in about 4 or 5 days.
We have a place booked in Mendocino after leaving SFO which gets us a few hours further north. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best things to try to see and best places to stay when we travel furhter north on the way to Portland? From Mendocino we will have about 3-4 days to make it to Portland. I was thinking a night in Eureka or Crescent City to see the Redwoods, then on to Crater Lake the next day and stay around there (any suggestions?). I don't really know what would best.
If anyone has done this route in about the same timeframe (4-5 days), I would love to hear from you! Any suggestions will be a great help!
