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 (Astoria, Cannon Beach, Newport, etc) **Side note, I was really interested in the Cheese Factory in Tillamook but it will add a bit to our drive..is it worth it?
And then of course the long drive through Cali (I'm going to post this on the CA board too)..
So any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
