I'm flying into LA from Brisbane, Australia for a wedding in two weeks and am renting a car and driving up the west coast with a friend to Seattle.
Leaving from LA on Sunday the 21st and arriving in Seattle on Friday the 26th.
These are my current planned overnight stops:
Sunday Afternoon: LA -> Morro Bay
Monday: Morro Bay -> Big Sur -> Monterey
Tuesday: Monterey -> San Fran
Wed & Thur: San Fran -> Portland
Friday: Portland -> Seattle
I am after suggestions of where to spend the night on Wednesday night, preferably somewhere near the halfway point between San Fran & Portland. We are both huge into our scenery, I am originally from New Zealand so I am really keen to see some amazing stuff the US has to offer as I've only been to LA, New York city and NJ previously.
Also open to comments/suggestions on my current planned stops.
We are hoping to stay in as cheap accommodation as possible, so any suggestions on good backpackers would also be welcome.
Thanks in advance!
