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
In addition we were thinking about stopping off to eat/explore:
So any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
