My 20 year old daughter and I are planning a road trip from San Diego to Portland(???) beginning on May 1st. We are huge beach people and love old historic towns/cemetaries, etc. It would be nice to see the Redwoods and POSSIBLY some of the wine area although that is probably our least interests. I'm hoping to save some money in doing nature areas/sites that are free or are at a very minimal fee. Also, we cannot camp but would be interested in other very affordable lodging options along the line. A couple of questions: 1) Suggestions on "must see's" for this trip 2) suggestions for time frame in which to complete this --- 5 days, 7 days - 10 would be the absolute maximum we could accomplish 3) If not all the way to Portland, what other major city other than San Francisco should we plan to fly out of back to Atlanta, GA or Charlotte, NC?
