Hello! Me and my boyfriend are driving from Colorado to Alaska starting in April so I'm trying to get good ideas of things and places not to miss. Not exactly sure what route we'll be driving, we'll definitely go through Arcata, CA then head north. Will probably try to drive on the coast a little bit. Will definitely go through Portland and Seattle (but I can find lots of info on those cities.. smaller town info would be better).
I'm from Ohio and I like fresh and homemade foods, desserts, and I love Thai and Indian. I don't eat much meat and hate anything not home-made. He's from Hawaii and loves good Japanese, diners, hot dogs, french dip, seafood, Mexican, etc. Any ideas of farmer's markets, homemade diners, international flavors, delicious desserts, and anything we can buy and keep with us?? Also, if anyone has any ideas of specific places that we should explore or things we should do in specific cities, that'd be helpful as well. Thanks!!
