When we thought about a vacation/honeymoon we knew we wanted to see the beauty within the USA. We live in the Catskills area of NY. We are not beach or heat lovers either. I traveled out to Portland about ten years ago and i remember hiking to the waterfalls, seeing the mountains in the skyline and great wine. More recently I heard about Mt. Tabor park and it will be my new last name, plus I wanted to see the Redwoods-and there is no direct flights there. Roadtrip it is!
So the deal is my best friend had flightpoints and bought us a Southwest flight into Portland, OR in the end of April and out of Reno,NV a week later. I only have a week but if it seems necessary we will add on another day or two. We both have new jobs and my fiance only gets 10days for sick/vacation. My plan is Mon/Tues in Portland, hit the road for about 8 hrs Wednesday, arrive in Eureka, sightsee Thurs/Fri, Saturday drive to Reno/Tahoe area and leave Monday at noon. I did google maps and it says to travel down 5, then redwood highway and then highway 101 to Eureka. see link: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=portl...ed=0CAgQ_AUoAg
Should we take alternate routes to see other stuff?
thanks in advance!
