    Default Summer '09 Pacific Northwest road trip w/parents

    I need help in planning a 6 week summer 2009 road trip to the Pacific Northwest that includes a 2 week cruisetour of Alaska. I will be driving my parents who are in their 70's from the Detroit area and will need to make frequent stops and require a slower pace. My father depends on a scooter for distance walks and my mother is a slow mover but able to get around. Our transportation will be a mini-van. Some points of interest include Colorado Springs & Boise to visit family, San Francisco, giant redwoods, Portland OR, Mount St. Helen's, and others. Where do I begin?

    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    With the four weeks you have to explore the continental US, you have many opportunities to drive around and take in a lot of wonderful scenery.

    I found this post that gives some idea of the scenery your can expect. Granted, it was written in the winter, but it does give a little insight to some of the places you can access by car.

    I think the places you have listed are accessible for those with limited mobility - perhaps PNW Judy will have more insight than I can offer since she is from the area.
