My companion and I are planning our first road trip. I have no clue as to what to do and where to start. I found this website in hopes that someone can help. I am traveling December 22, 06 for 14 days starting in Seattle WA. I would like to visit Washington State, Oregon, and North California. I will be departing from Seattle on January 4th. Does anyone have any suggestions on what cities to visit, places to see, where to stay (budget accomodation), and ideas on rental car? Any help would be great.
