My partner and I at taking a month off work and heading to the USA in May/June 2014.
We are flying in San Fran, staying there for a couple night and then heading north (we are renting a car).
We would like to spend 4-5 days somewhere on our way to Portland- any suggestions of nice beach towns?
Would it be worth going to Seattle for a couple nights after Portland?
After Portland we would like to head to Yellow Stone National Park ( we are unsure of where to stop on the way) & what to do exactly at Yellowstone.
From Yellowstone we would like to visit Salt Lake City, Grand Cannon then to Vegas before heading to Santa Monica and back to San Fran to fly out (14 days).
I would really appreciate any suggestions of cool things to do.. we like surfing, mountain biking, hiking, organized events (eg half marathons) as well as City times!
