  1. Default Trip from San Francisco to Portland

    Hi all,

    My wife and I are planning a trip this July as follows:

    1) Flying in from east coast to San Francisco

    2) Spend 3 days driving up to Rogue Rive in Oregon

    3) Take a 5 day rafting trip on the Rogue

    4) Spend 3 days driving up to Portland, where we fly home

    I'd be grateful for any suggestions people have for sites to see and places to stay (prefer Inns or B&Bs) on the two road trips (i.e., S.F. to Rogue & Rogue to Portland).

    Thanks for the help!

    Default North from San Francisco

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Judy has written far better and more extensively than I ever could on the Washington and Oregon coasts. On the way north out of San Francisco, you'll have to decide between the Napa Valley and the coast, or perhaps with three days you could even do both. This discussion will help you decide where and how to see the big trees of northern California. I have to tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed the one drive I was able to make up the coast to Rogue River. I found the northern coast every bit as beautiful, a bit more untamed, and considerably less crowded than its more famous cousin the Big Sur. As for B&Bs, they are such a labor of love by their owners, and a matter of taste by their clientele, that recommending one would absolutely require that I had stayed in it and would still be fraught with the probability that our tastes differ. My wife usually picks our accommodations when we travel and her criterion is the pictures on their web site. She claims, and I have no reason to doubt her given her great choices, that she can tell what kind of welcome and experience we will have from the decor. That's the best advice on can give you.
