My partner and I (mid-30's) are heading to USA/Canada for a 7 week trip in Late September. We're basing ourselves in cities for a good portion of our trip, but want to do the drive from San Fran to Seattle, we have two weeks in all, but would like to spend around a week of that in and around Portland.
The above is just in case there is other advice...
I'm really wondering what the pros and cons of hwy 1 vs hwy 101 north of San Fran are?
My partner and I love coastal views, but forests too (Must see Redwoods!!), and would like to do a few walks, good food and drink (beer more than wine) too.
Just trying to decide which route would be best for us - any suggestions?
