Driving along west coast from Seattle to LA

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be flying into Seattle the week after Labor Day and driving from Seattle to LA.. We don't hike, camp, fish, climb, bike, or do much outdoors stuff except to view beautiful scenery. We are not traveling with children and are allowing about 17 days for this trip.
An outline of our very tentative schedule is:
Days 1-3 Seattle area
Day 4 - Ferry to Olympic peninsular Port Townsend, Port Angeles and hotel on the way to Forks, WA
Day 5 - Forks, Ilwaco, Astoria.
Day 6 - Astoria, Tillamook, Coos Bay
Day 7 - Coos Bay and Gold Beach.
Day 8 - Jet boat on Rouge River and drive down the coast to Crescent City, CA
and Redwood NP
Day 9 - Drive to Redding CA, Shasta Lake Dam. Then drive to Sacramento.
Day 10 - Full day in Napa. (We're not winery lovers, so we'll only go to 2 or 3)
Day 11 - Muir Woods NP and San Francisco.
Day 12 -13 Full days in SF. Start drive toward Salinas.
Day 14- 15 Drive down PCH to Santa Barbara making all stops along the way.
Day 16 -17 Full days in LA (We've been here before)
Day 18 - Fly home

Did we allow enough (or too much) time? Any suggestions for restaurants/motels along this route that we should see or avoid? What time does it get dark on the left coast at that time of year? What is the "real feel" weather (I can't get that from Weatherundergound)? What are the road conditions along Rt.101? Lanes? Construction? Traffic? Anything else that can effect the timing of the trip. The only time constraints I have is the return date of my flight. This has not been determined yet and depends on the feedback I get from my online travel friends.
Any and all input is appreciated
