Hello! This is such a great forum!
My sister is moving to L.A., and my husband and I volunteered to drive down from Seattle to L.A. to drop off some boxes. We're taking a flight back to Seattle.
We were going to power through in two days and fly back to Seattle, but we've managed to get some additional driving time (4-5 days). Unfortunately, we have to start driving next week. We have no plans and don't know what we can reasonably achieve in the additional time we have.
We think it may be best to power through the first day as far as we can on I-5. We would love your suggestions on where to stop that first day.
We'd also be very grateful for any additional itinerary suggestions. The only thing we had originally hoped we could do was stop at Hearst Castle/San Simeon on our way to L.A.
My husband is from England and loves nature and the coast-line--he'd be really happy if our schedule permits driving down scenic roads and getting some good eats. He would also be very happy if we could drive through/stop briefly in San Francisco, see the Winchester Castle (he saw some show in England about it :) ), and/or see redwoods. Any help is much appreciated!
Thank you very much!
