Mega road trip California to Seattle

Jump to last reply

Considering planning a 3 week (possibly a little longer) road trip up the west coast all the way to Seattle. Would love to cross the border to BC, but not sure there's enough time.
Need some pointers on number of days and places to stop we might not think about. We'd be mostly camping. We're good with a mix of primitive and not so primitive. Our start date is pretty flexible at this point. Maybe end of April, beginning of May. We have 3 kids...2 teens and a 4 year old.

We live near Dallas, Would take about 3 days and our first big stop would be Yosemite. Should we plan on 3 full days there? From Yosemite I'd like to head to Big Sur. and then begin our northward ascent. Is 2 full days there enough? Next we'd head to SF for a couple of days. I have a friend I'd like to see. We're not big city people, but I wouldn't want to miss it.

After SF I don't have a plan. I see lots of interesting places on the map. Patrick's Point is a destination a couple of my friends have mentioned and I guess it's right outside Redwood NP. Maybe 3 nights there?

I'm clueless as to Oregon. I have a friend in Seattle who has given me some input, but would welcome more! If we're that close to BC, should we just bite the bullet and go on?

Would like to head back to Texas down through Idaho and try to see Craters of the Moon Park.

We spent 2 weeks camping last year through GC, Zion, Bryce and Arches and loved it. Did Yellowstone a few years ago. So maybe some ideas on our return trip that bypass those places?

We love the outdoors and wildlife. Would love to see whales, sea lions, etc.

Thanks so much!!
