Road Trip from SF to Vancouver/Seattle- where are the best places to see?

A friend and I are planning a trip by car from San Francisco to Seattle/Vancouver (undecided yet) in September next year.

Basically I am wondering if anyone has done this before or lives anywhere around the areas that we will be traveling through can recommend things to do/see? We have the obvious like Yosemite National Park and Lake Tahoe etc. but looking for suggestions on places to go, hidden gems, things we should see.

Any help would be much appreciated

California   Seattle   Oregon   Vancouver

Elliott, this is such a good idea! I hope you have a great trip.

Last June, I drove from San Diego to Seattle. I stopped off in San Francisco as one of my nights, and drove most of the Pacific Coast Highway (the US1/US101). Here's what I did:


Have a good drive!

I haven't done that trip, but it sounds fantastic..just bring warm clothing. Here's a must visit place along the way for you to check out at Point Reyes

Vancouver has as many things to do as Seattle.  It's a beautiful city.  If you want to see the mountains, that is the place to start.  After taking in all Vancouver has to offer you can head up to Whistler.  Or, alternatively, you can go from Seattle through the San Juan Islands and over to Victoria.  It will pretty much depend on where you fly out of.  Be sure to check the regulations for driving a rental over the boarder.  If you go to Victoria, you can leave the car in Seattle, take the ferry to the San Juans and then a ferry to Victoria.

Of course you MUST do Yosemite and Tahoe.  Make a note of "Glacer Point" and be sure and go up there when you're in Yosemite.  Most people miss it because they just stick to the Valley.  Their loss!
