12-day trip plan to from Portland, OR to SF

Jump to last reply

I have a 3-day conference in SF end of June so our family plan to go together for a vacation. We have 3 kids (age 10, 7 and 3.5). Our goal is to drive no more than 6 hours a day so we won't be too tired (which would defeat the purpose of vacation!). Here is our tentative plan:

06/21: Leave Portland, OR, drive to Eugene (2 hours), tour and rest at University of Oregon. Continue drive to Ashland (about 3 hours) or Redding (5 hours) and stay for the night.

06/22: Drive to Lake Tahoe (4-6 hours depending on where to stay the night before). Stay for 2 nights.

06/24: Leave Lake Tahoe. Drive to Yosemite (4 hours). Stay for 2 nights.

06/26: Leave Yosemite. Drive to SF (4 hours). Tour SF downtown. Stay for 4 nights. I attend conference. Hubby takes kids tour around (Golden Bridge Park, etc.)

06/30: Leave SF, head to Redwood National Park (5-6 hours). Stay for 1 night.

07/1: Leave Redwoods park, head to Florence, OR (4-5 drive). Stay for 1 night. Two boys would love the sand dunes!

07/02: Leave Florence, head home to Portland (4 hours drive).

I feel the trip back home is a little bit too tight but we must get home by July 2. All the planned destination is new to us except I once worked in SF for a short 2 months period. I appreciate any suggestions and advice re where to stay, where to tour, and eat. Thanks very much.
