      2 weeks is a bit short but doable, have fun anon

      2 days is enough to comfortably drive from LA to Seattle (for Americans at least) so it really depends on where you want to stop. Lake Tahoe was mentioned, I'd also suggest Crater Lake. The Oregon coast is worth exploring, if you're a fan of The Goonies, Astoria is worth a stop. It's actually a cool town regardless. If you visit theme parks in LA and stop for at least a day or 2 at national parks like Mt. St. Helens or Mt. Ranier you could fill up your 2 weeks though you could probably do this trip in 9 days and still cover a lot of things.

      Thanks a lot

    when youre in seattle, go to the ivars in pike place market and order the clam chowder. best in the country.

    In Tacoma in Washington we have a lot of good museums in downtown, along with a free tram line running up and down the waterfront. its to I-5 an hour from seattle and its a damn good city

    Just FYI, route 1 is closed between San Simeon and Carmel in California indefinitely because of a landslide, so I'm recommending a different route than I usually would. Don't drive up the coast. It's pretty, but there is literally nothing to do for hundreds of miles from San Fran to Seattle and the fog and rain sucks. Spend at least 2-3 nights in Yosemite.

    Santa Monica-Malibu- Santa Barbara-Pismo Beach-Avila Beach-Morro Bay-Oakhurst, Yosemite Valley-Lee Vining-South Lake Tahoe-Truckee-Lassen Volanic, Mount Shasta-Crater Lake- Bend-Mount Hood-Portland-Canon Beach- Astoria- Seattle

    When you get to Washington, state on the Coastal highway (Olympic Peninsula side) rather than turning inland for Seattle, once you are done exploring the Olympic Peninsula you should take the car ferry over to Seattle.

    Olympic Peninsula is awesome, temperate rainforests like the Hoh are spectacular, great oysters.
    Ferry system in Washington is amazing and most people don't even know about it.

    If you want to, proceed up north from Seattle through Bellingham (good beer/lunch spots to stop on Bellingham bay) and then go to Peace Arch border crossing into Canada as a nice terminus for your trip. Add a side trip into Artist Point (elevation 5,000 ft at the roads end) at Mount Baker (check its open first, its covered in snow and not opened ~3-6 months a year).

    West coast is best coast.

      *Stay on Coastal highway, not state* I am moronic at typing.

      Also OP, if into big trees the redwoods in cali are bigger, but there is some secret old growth areas off of highway 542 at Mt Baker that are also 1000+ years old, ask the rangers or locals for mile post.

      And a few very large trees in the Hoh and the like on Olympic Peninsula as well.

        After 1000 miles, no towns and your 10,000th scenic overlook, you'll beg for any sign of life. The only section I'd recommend is Malibu to Santa Barbara, and the stretch in Oregon from Tillamook to Canon Beach. The middle route is infinitely better. Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Shasta, Crater Lake, Lassen, Bend and Hood are all so different an unique. Yosemite alone is worth skipping the entire coast.
