North west coast with a toddler

Jump to last reply

We are planning on travelling to the US from the UK around 22 August 2015 for 3 weeks. We will have a child with us who will turn 3 while we are there and I will turn 40. We have a rough itinerary but need some suggestions on places to stay and recommended time to stay in the areas.

Flight UK to San Francisco. Stay in San Fran for maybe 4 nights.
Would like suggestions which areas to stay that are suitable for a tight budget in San Francisco. Clean and basic is fine as unlikely to stay in the room for anything much than sleeping.
We will then hire a car and head to Yosemite for approx. 2-3 nights. Any suggestions where to stay. Looked online and not surprisingly accommodation seems very expensive.

From Yosemite the plan is to drive to Oregon and spend a about a week here. Not sure if we should rent a condo or something for a week and do day trips or travel around every few days and stay in different areas. Suggestions would be really helpful. I've had a look on the visitor sight and it looks like lots of kid friendly walks, parks etc. this may have been Portland.

The final week would be to head to Seattle. Would a week be too long? Should we include Vancouver or spend more time in the first 2 states? We will fly home from either Seattle or Vancouver depending on the final leg.

Thanks in advance.
