My husband and I are visiting the US from the UK in August and are planning to hire a car in Seattle and go on a road trip to Yellowstone Park and back to Seattle. I'm hoping for some recommendations on possible routes, places to visit on the way and places to stay.
We're both in our early thirties, hoping to see some amazing scenery and do lots of active things like hiking, maybe white water rafting, swimming, horse riding, open to any other suggestions. We'd like to stay in smaller guesthouses or bed and breakfasts with a personal touch rather than larger chain hotels if possible, so any suggestions of good places to stay would be much appreciated. We also like good food, wine and beer so any suggestions of places to eat or drink would be great as well.
We're not on a tight budget, so suggestions in any price range are fine. We've got about eight days for the trip.
Thanks in advance for all your suggestions!
