Suggestions needed for a Road Trip (LA to Oregon and back)

Jump to last reply

Hello all,

We are planning a trip to the west Coast end of July. We will spend 4 days in LA and then want to drive to Portland and back in 8 days. I was told that the drive from North to South is better along the Coast. So we want to take I-5 and go up to Portland and drive back along the coast. Main focus on this trip is Nature. We would like to cover some National Parks and enjoy the drive.

Are there any trip reports that someone could direct me to or make suggestions on what we should see and what could be avoided.

We will be traveling with my 12 yr old. He has a lot of patience.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
