Proposed West Coast driving itinerary -- how does it look?

Jump to last reply

After playing around with dates and flight times, we have settled on the following draft itinerary for our trip in July. We will have spent some time in the Portland/Seattle area and in Victoria and Vancouver (Canada) before leaving Seattle to drive south. As well, we spent a few days in Healdsberg and in San Francisco in 2009, so have decided against committing further time to San Francisco on this trip. Possible accommodation choices are shown in brackets.

Day 1. Pick up car in Seattle and drive to Cannon Beach via 101 from Olympia (2 nights at Stephanie Inn)

Day 3. Drive to Yachats (2 nights at SeaQuest Inn)

Day 5. Drive to Bandon (1 night at Lighthouse B&B or Bandon Beach Motel)

Day 6. Drive to Eureka (2 nights at Carter Inns)

Day 8. Drive to Mendocino (2 nights at Brewery Gulch Inn)

Day 10. Drive to Napa (3 nights at Best Western Elm Street)

Day 13. Drop car at SFO before flight home.

As can be seen, we are sticking to the coast all the way, and plan to enjoy the opportunities for walks on the beaches, etc, but intend to do detours as the mood takes us and time permits. Hopefully, the itinerary is sufficiently unhurried (in terms of driving times and distances) to enable us to do that.

Any comments or advice on the timing, the stopover locations or the possible accommodation (good or bad) would be welcome.

Rob.
