My boyfriend and I are taking a week long road trip in the middle of March. We are flying into San Francisco, then driving down to Santa Cruz to see my friend and staying for one night, then driving up to Portland.
I haven't made any concrete plans yet, and I would like to keep things somewhat flexible. I know that I want to visit some wineries, I've always wanted to do that. But, I'm not sure if we could see both the Napa and the Sonoma Valley vineyards, or if I should choose one or the other. Also, I'd like to see the Redwood forests, I am open to any interesting suggestions any of you may have, and I'd like to spend the last two days in Portland.
I've got no problem finding places to stay as I go, but I'm not sure which route would be the best. Also, I'd love if someone could clue me in about the California wine country - this trip has been a dream of mine for quite some time and just last night we decided to purchase our plane tickets on a whim. So, we're going for it - I've got about a month to plan, but I haven't got a clue about where to start.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time! =)
