  1. Default Vancouver to Santa Barbara. Need advice

    My and my friend are driving down from Vancouver, Canada to Santa Barbara, and I need to know possible routes to take. We want to go along the coast and encounter scenic views. Are there any sights worth visiting on our way down? We aren't on a time limit, but we dont want to spend forever driving there or waste gas. We will be gone either mid July or early august. How long will this take? Are there any particular campsites near our route for overnight stays that you reccomend?

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    There are several possible routes and variation. Its hard to argue just following the coast, which will have scenic views around every curve. This is a slow going route, though, and will take several more days than taking the fast way via I-5. Of course, you could also stay inland and view the many mountainous sites, like Mt. St. Helens, Crater Lake, and Yosemite, just to name a few.
