Wisconsin to California

Jump to last reply

Myself and 3 of my friends are planning on road tripping out to California for Spring Break. We have about 11 days to make the trip. We would like some input for the "must see" attractions and where we should actually go! We are really up for anything! One of the girls traveling with us has never been out west or seen the ocean so she really wants to see the ocean and mountains.

One option we were thinking was to drive from Madison, WI to Laguna Beach, CA. Making sure to stop in Denver and Vegas.

The second option we were thinking on doing was to drive from Madison, WI to Portland, OR (have family that we can stay with there) and then driving down the coast to San Francisco before coming home. This route gives us the most coverage and two very different routes traveling, but we aren't sure we will have enough time.

Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We don't want to spend a whole lot and are planning on staying in cheap hotels, motels, or hostels. A night or two might also be spent in the car.
