Please HELP with Road Trip from Los Angeles to Vancouver

Jump to last reply

Ive been scouring the web and this site for ideas for my planned road trip with my kids from Los Angeles to Vancouver in August. I need help! So much to explore and see but I am desperate for someone's insight and knowledge of the trip to help me plan my itinerary. I have just about three weeks! And it is me with my kids who range in age from 2-15, but my emphasis is always on the older ones so dont mind the 2 year old in your suggestions! We made it to Utah last summer! My current plan is to leave on a Sunday morning and head to Sacramento. Haven't been there in decades but thought it would be nice to show the kids the capital! Not sure how many hours/days I need there. Now here's the first big question: I have to be in Portland by Wednesday night. I have already done the road trip up north with my kids - so we already did san francisco, hearst castle, carmel etc. So we dont need to go there. But we have NOT seen the redwoods and the oregon coast. I am trying to figure out how to do that and make it to Portland by Wednesday night (we are being met and must be there). So I REALLY need help. I have been reading over so many different routes and I am getting completely confused! Oregon Caves and the redwoods sound amazing as does the oregon coast! Crater Lake also sounds so fascinating but should I do that on my way back? That brings me to the next big question, HELP with my way back! the in between is taken care of as we will go from Portland to Seattle and then to Vancouver. We plan to leave Vancouver on a Tuesday and we must be home by Friday mid afternoon. Somebody who knows these routes PLEASE HELP ME with my going and coming! Im losing my mind here and must have an itenirary so I can book small (nee cheap!) accomodations! Hate to ask too much but I would LOVE suggestions of places to visit in Portland, Seattle and Vancouver.
