I am going to be going on my honeymoon soon and i will be traveling straight to san diego from portland. we will visit the zoo there and sea world and maybe other places. From there we will start heading back up north back towards oregon and on our way back we would like to stop at various places that will be nice sight seeing places, touristic areas, some other zoo's, etc. i know we willl go to san fran for a zoo there and obviusly other attractions there. we are leaving on a tuesday aroud and want to be back home the following sunday or even monday at the latest so it will be a 6 day road trip. and my budget will range from anywhere from as low as $500 to as much as 1500 what my questions are is...
1) what are some great places to see on the way back from san diego?
2)where is a good place to make a stop for the first half of the way to San Diego? ( i will leave tuesday at noon and i want to make it into Cali before i do a rest stop)
3) i am under 21 so what can i enjoy being that age?
4)Any restaurants (fancy or not) that you would recommend?
5) Places to stay out of? (I want to be safe)
6) going off of my budget what attractions can i go to, food places, and hotels could i afford? (i know someone that made $500 work for a trip to san francisco so i know it could be done)
if you have any other suggestions or advice please let me know, i am a first time traveler that need HELP!!!
thank you in advance for all your help
