Driving to and in the Pacific Northwest

Jump to last reply

I am planning a road trip with a friend from Arkansas to Portland, OR via Denver to deliver wedding gifts and furniture to my daughter who moved up there recently. We will tow a small uhaul and we know it will take us some extended time to make the trip. Hoping to see sights along the way to break up the trip- but only have 5-7 days to make it all the way to Portland. Any suggestions on routes that are scenic and interesting from Denver: perhaps via Lake Tahoe then up the coast of Cali to OR? Or suggestions for the "northern" route thru Wyoming and Idaho instead? Trying to see the most and still make decent time on the trip!
Once in OR we plan to see sights there and drive up to Seattle and Vancouver and the San Juan Islands. Any recommendations for San Jaun's hotels, ferries, etc and same for Vancouver are appreciated!
