    Default California to Idaho - June 2013

    My wife and I are visiting Boise,Idaho in early June for a family wedding and are planning to incorporate a road trip into our visit. After our last visit to Boise we travelled across to Denver via Yellowstone, Cody, Mount Rushmore so are fine about long distance driving.

    We will have around 8 to 10 days available before the wedding and are thinking of flying into San Fransisco and then doing one of 2 alternatives. We could drive east to Yosemite and then pick up the 395 and head north to Idaho or head north on the 1/101 up the coast into Oregon and then across to Boise.

    We will have to do a lot more research before we book any flights but are there any thoughts on our best options and whether we'll have enough time to take the journey at a relatively relaxed pace.

    Default Time enough.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    A journey from SF to Boise could be done comfortably in 2 days via Yosemite or Oregon so with 8-10 days you will have a lot of opportunties to sight see. There really isn't a best option other than the one that takes your fnmcy the most. What are your plans for after the wedding, have you any time remaining ? If you had 10 days for travelling, plus the wedding you could do a round trip from SF and visit Yosemite, Lake Tahoe etc one way and do the coast [perhaps Crater Lake] the other, and the wedding could be somewhere in the middle of the trip..

    Many thanks Dave.

    It looks as though it might be best for us to organise our departure date from UK so as to do Yosemite/Tahoe before the wedding and the coast after and we can then fly into and back out of SF. I'm not familiar with Crater Lake so will include that it in the research we'll do before booking next week
