My husband and I are planning what is probably our last trip. We are passionate about travel, and are very active travelers, we like hiking, food, wine, scenary, art, interesting small towns. Due to my husband's health, we have decided that we need to take a trip in March/April 2014 and we are thinking about driving the Pacific Northwest. We have spent significant time in San Francisco, and points south, so we thought we would fly into San Francisco/or Oakland, start our trip in Napa/Sonoma and then head north to Seattle. Places /things we are interested in include Olympic Peninsula, San Juan Islands, Oregon coast, Crater Lake, Mt. Hood/Ranier, and Napa/Sonoma. We will drive and would prefer to spend at 2 days in each location. We are in our early 60's, and unable to do any hiking due to his current health. Money will not be an overriding concern with this trip, so my questions is: What places/towns do you recommend as bases to stay. We will allow 2-3 weeks for this trip. As this is late March/early April, some of these places I'm assuming may still have significant snow and will not be options, so ... Thank you all for your advice.
