travel up the coast from San Franciso to Seattle

Jump to last reply

My family and I are going to spend time in California this summer. We have never been. The plan is to arrive in San Francisco and spend 3 nights. then we will rent a car and we have 5 possible 6 days to drive up the coast to meet more family in Astoria, Oregon before spending our last 2 or 3 nights in Seattle. Astoria was only chosen because I asked my family member where Goonies movie was filmed and she said Astoria - so she is going to meet us there for a night before we move on to her house for a visit. Seemed like a cool place to see. I want to see the redwood trees - hope to stop at Muir woods on the way out of San Francisco, but also see Redwood national forest. Any suggestions on a route to take and sights to see. This is probably a once in a lifetime trip and I have never been to the west coast. One sight my husband wants to see is VooDoo Donuts in portland, oregon - so does anyone know of other things to check out there that would make it worth our effort to go out of the way?? I appreciate any input anyone may have.
Thanks
hallihope
