Seattle to San Diego - 2 to 3 week trip - help appreciated!

Jump to last reply

Hi - husband and I plan to fly to Seattle from UK, arriving 1st October. We want to drive down to San Diego taking about 18-21 days. I am worried that the Olympic Park weather might be difficult and that it might be better to start our coastal drive further down the coast, accessing via Olympia?

Is the coastal road "scary" - I'm not too good at that!!

Any help with "must see" places would be useful. We are in our early sixties, fit and happy to do a bit of gentle hiking, but also like the good life so Napa Valley a must! Also like museums and culture but just want to enjoy the trip without making it too much of a rush to get from place to place.

Does 2/3 nights in Seattle, depending on our arrival time, and 3 nights San Francisco sound about right?.

We are also thinking of going to Phoenix once we reach San Diego, if we have time.

Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you.
