17 Days from Seattle to San Francisco - is my plan OK ??

Jump to last reply

We are a family from the UK who are making a trip from Seattle to San Francisco next August. We have 17 days to spend on this trip. Worth saying that we a little older so walks and short hikes are fine but nothing more. Also we prefer National Parks more than walking around cities however nice they may be ….and one last thing, we like to base ourselves for 3-5 days in one place and do day trips, these save having to constantly pack and unpack. Here is our draft plan ….you feedback would be most welcome.

Days 1-2 leave Seattle and drive to Olympic National Park

Days 3-7 Cross over by ferry to Vancouver Island , spend 2-3 days exploring the Islands, cross over to Vancouver City for a day.

Days 8-12 Drive south and base ourselves in the Portland Area – day trips to the Oregon Coast , Mt St Helens , Columbia River etc ( are we to far from theCoast ?)

Days 13-17 Drive further South and base ourselves in the Medford Area - day trips to Crater Lake, Redwood National Park etc.

Please do tell me …if this is all wrong !! Also if I have missed out any must do sights please do tell me …..thank you
