My boyfriend and I have been wanting to do a road trip along the pacific coast and hit San francisco, Portland Oregon and Seattle.We just have no idea where to start like how to budget, where we should stay, what places are a must see and the list goes on.Are there any suggestions on what we should do that are helpful?

You will not be able drive CA 1 from Cambria to Carmel; the road is closed due to a massive landslide and the destruction of a bridge.

When is your trip? In addition to the Highway 1 closure through part of Big Sur, San Francisco gets a lot of conventions in the fall which drive room rates sky high.

Yes needing more information to help you plan.

What makes you interested in doing this road trip? There must be some thing you wanted to see that's why you thought of it in the first place, right?

What time of year? How long is the trip? In a car (or van or camper)?

We just have no idea where to start

First, go to to compute the distances between these places and back to Arizona (which is where I presume you live).

Then, go to your library or a book store to find guide books on the destinations that interest you most.

Attractions north of San Francisco include Napa and Sonoma Valley wine districts and the redwoods.

The coast line and the Columbia River gorge are two not-to-be-missed attractions in Oregon, and Washington has Mt. Rainier, the Olympic National Park, and the San Juan Islands among other popular destinations.
