My husband and I (33) are planning our annual Thanksgiving trip and this year we would love to explore somewhere new. We live in San Diego and are open to either driving from here, or flying somewhere and renting a car. In past years we have done the California coast up to Big Sur, Seattle down the Washington and Oregon coast to the CA Redwoods, and Portland to Hood River to Idaho.
We would love to explore somewhere new! We loved Washington and Oregon coast so much in November. We don't mind the rain, in fact - we embraced it and enjoyed the lack of crowds and lower price hotel rooms!
I'd love to know what ideas you may have for some inspiration. We would be traveling from Friday, November 22nd to Sunday, December 1st. Olympic National Park was an idea, but I'm not sure what else to pair that with. I also have never been to Utah, New Mexico or Colorado - so I'm not sure if I should head that way.
We would be looking to stay in nice accomodations (would love your ideas on the best/nicest hotels to focus on) and we love to drive around and explore, we like easy hikes or nice walks more than huge hikes and LOVE food/wine/spirits.
Is this enough to have you guys throw around some ideas? Please let me know anything else you may need to help!
