My nephew (16yr) and I will be traveling from Seattle to San Diego the last week of May into June. We do not have a set time frame and can take as long as we like. We're planning to camp as much as possible to save $$ on lodging. We are also traveling with my dog.
Here are the definite plans we have: Baseball game in Seattle, San Fran, Oakland, LA, Anaheim, and San Diego. Redwood Natl Forest, Big Sur, a few days in San Fran, Heart Castle, Santa Cruz, Huntington Beach, a few days in LA.
Curious what our options would be for the Oregon coast. I've eliminated Crater Lake as I want to take my nephew ATV'ing in the sand dunes instead.
Is there anything to see/hit between Oregon and Redwood?
Redwood and San Fran?
Where are good places to stop between San Fran and LA? I'd like to hit as many beaches as possible, maybe learn to surf somewhere, but we also have the dog. I have to try and find some dog sitters along the way as she won't be able to stay in the car while we are sightseeing at some places. Any suggestions for this? I was thinking craigslist....
In LA, we wanted to try and see a live TV show, Rodeo Drive/Beverly Hills, map of the stars and drive ourselves.
Any suggestions for all or any part of this trip would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much.
