I plan to do a roadtrip on Oct from San Diego to Seattle and go back to San Diego. This is my first time road trip ever in the State, so any advice would help me a lot.
I have friend in Seattle so once I get there, she will help me out with must-see places. But on the way from SD to Seattle, I don't where should I stop and see. One of my friend suggest me to stop at Golden Bridge in San Francisco, Redwood and Portland in Oregon. Is it possible for me to do that?
I have a Toyota Prius 2002, is it ok for me to drive it to Seattle or I should rent another car?
I will stay in Inn/Hotel at a few stops, probably in Oregon. Should I book first? I am not sure what time I will drive to Oregon, that's why i am hesitate about booking room for now. Any reccommendation for Inn/Hotel?
What kind of clothes will be the best comfortable to wear when you have to drive a long way road trip?
Is it ok for me to bring a small size cooler to store water and some fruits?
Thank you so much for reading my post. I am appreciated for any advice and suggestion for my first time road trip.
