Driving from LA to Vancouver, going through Portland and Seattle

I'm driving from LA to Vancouver with my 6 and 8 year olds in December.  I am from Guatemala and my kids have never seen snow. We definitely want to go to Yosemite and the Sequoia National Park but don´t know about any highlights from there to Sacramento and then to Seattle followed by Vancouver.  Is Portland worth visiting?  Anything that is a must see? Suggestions?

Skip Portland, but the Oregon coast is lovely and an easy drive;  and I don't know anything in Sacramento worth visiting (except wineries). Yosemite National Park & Sequoia a must-see.  Tahoe City is a good choice... beautiful lake!  Be careful in December... roads may be snowy &/or icy.  Seattle will most likely be overcast & gloomy;  same with Vancouver.

You are driving through a beautiful coastline, but your kids are 6 and 8 so you need to tailor this trip to them. You are right on with Yosemite and Sequoia. Sacramento is quite charming and has a great "old town" to see. It is also special to see the capitol. The Oregon Coast is gorgeous, I would stop in Portland for a bite to eat, but I would spend my time in Seattle and see the The Space NeedlePike Place MarketPioneer Squareand take the Underground Tour in Pioneer Square. Best of luck and safe travels.
