I am travelling to the Seattle from Australia on business in August, a trip I do every couple of years. This year instead of flying into LA and connecting to Seattle, I want to realise a very small part of one of my dreams and drive from LA to Seattle (of course the big dream is to spend 6 months or more driving up, down and across the US).
From my research and knowledge, the trip is just under 2000 kms. I will give myself a week and I plan on stopping over in San Francisco for a couple of days to visit an Aussie friend at Yosemite. I love driving and want to maximise the short time that I have. I am after suggestions on stopovers along the way, I would like to spend the majority of time by the coast - I love the coast and have spent a day driving from LA down the Pacific Coast Highway in 06 on my last visit. I am hoping I can get some good ideas of places to visit and places to stay. Looking forward to your input.
