  1. Default SEA to SFO in 2 - 3 days

    We are relocating to SF area and would like to drive down. We are in Seattle right now. We have two kids, 9 and 5. We are looking to spend 1 - 3 nights during our trip down. Never driven down from Seattle to SF.

    We definitely want to try coastal road.
    We also want to make sure to hit Redwood forest.
    What else we should include?

    We are leaving on 10/5.

    My current plan is to drive down to Medford via I5 and spend a night.
    Then go east to Crater Lake on day 2 and come back to Medford to spend second night.
    On third day drive through Redwood and down the coastal highway to SF.

    Any other suggestions? I can extend the trip an extra day if I need to. Since I will be living in SF area, anything within 2-3 hour range from SF can be skipped from this trip.

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

    Default Not really.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    Your current plan leaves you too much to day on your last day as the coast road is slower going and needing time to visit the Redwoods. If your budget can mange it I would try and get lodgings at Crater NP and then stop in Eureka [or somewhere nearby Redwoods] and then drive the 'Avenue of the Giants' in Humboltd Redwood State Park on the way to SF. Ideally the third night would make the trip more relaxed and enjoyable, especially for the Kids.

    Check the NP's web page before travelling to check the status of roads etc at Crater Lake.
