I somehow stumbled across this website and just love it.
I am planning a family road trip this summer with my wife and 2 girls who are 8 years of age. We will be starting from Los Angeles and want to go as far as Vancouver. Some of the stops that we want to make include Santa Barbara, Monterey, San Francisco, Seattle and as stated earlier, Vancouver, BC.
We will be traveling in a mid-size SUV and will be staying at various hotels/motels along the way. Our objective is to share with our children different places that are fun, educational and cool. I'm looking for ideas on places to visit, restaurants (not really expensive types), things to see, etc... We love the ocean and nature. I'd like to stay in San Francisco for 2 days, Seattle 2 days and maybe the same in Vancouver. Our total trip will last 2 weeks. From San Francisco up north, I'm not familiar with much, especially Oregon. Is it worth the time to drive along the coast in Oregon, or just drive along the Interstate 5 into Seattle?
Thanks in advance...
