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, I think we'll go through Vegas then head to the southwestern edge of Sequoia and through Sequoia, King's Canyon, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Sacramento, San Francisco, then up 1 to Arcata and the Redwoods. I'd also like to do a bit of wine country. Especially tips about food in smaller cities and towns would be helpful since I know I can find info about the big cities.
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!!
