    Default Attractions for kids San Fran to Seattle


    I'm taking a road trip with my seven year old son from San Francisco to Seattle in two weeks and wondered if anyone could suggest interesting routes and especially any interesting sites/activities/destinations for kids on the way?

    We just returned from a similar trip...last night, actually! I'm assuming you're taking the 101. If not, please do! We took the I-5 north, and man was it boring! The 101 is all kinds of interesting. Our favorite stops:

    Trees of Mystery
    Devil's Churn State Park, which we found quite by accident. The website says plan several hours, but we spent about an hour at high tide and that was sufficient.
    Tillamook Cheese Factory; my 7-year-old son's top pick.

    Have a great time!
