Flying out of Asheville to Portland this month and will spend a week (Wed to Wed) making our way to San Fran. We had both Crater Lake and Yosemite on our list, with Yosemite ranking highest. But, to accomplish the latter would require so much time in the car and very little time to stop, relax and enjoy. We're more into quaint towns and views than wineries and long lines to touristy spots.
We will spend the 1st night in Portland and possibly head to Lincoln City, OR to begin our coastal drive south to Eureka, CA, via 101. From there, we're not sure. We probably want to spend one night in San Fran, at the end of our trip. That gives us 6 days to travel and sight see.
I have found so many interesting posts about drives along the west coast, too many wonderful itineraries to choose from! We're not interested in touring the wineries or famous homes; we do want to enjoy the dramatic coastline and see the redwoods, but we haven't decided on the rest.
Time is running out, we leave next week and will be making reservations for lodging today/tomorrow. Would appreciate opinions on what to do after Eureka.
