WEST COAST ROAD TRIP!

Ktbear7476 | Oct 21, 2004 11:23 AM

Hello chowhounds!

I am an East Coast Chowhound and this spring my best friend and I are flying to Seattle, renting a car and driving all the way down to San Diego (detouring to Portland too).

Anyhoo, I'm not too worried about the cities (Seattle, Portland, San Fran, L.A., San Diego) I can search through threads for that stuff, (although if you have a favorite, I'll take recommendations). What I'm more interested in is not to miss places along the way along the coast.

We are not doing too much of the Washington Coast (time constraints), but we are doing Oregon and then of course the long drive through CA.

We are planning on spending a night in:
the Crescent City/Eureka area
Mendocino
San Fran
Monterey/Carmel
SLO
LA
San Diego

In addition we were thinking about stopping off to eat/explore:

Leggett
Santa Cruz
Big Sur
San Simeon
Santa Barbara
La Jolla

So any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
