Hi Everyone,

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!

Wow, sounds like an exciting holiday adventure...... I can't help much with those activities, am exhausted thinking of them, but one thing that may be useful....... In our recent trip to the USA - see our blog, we stayed directly on the south rim of the Grand Canyon. Since we returned, I have noticed not many people are aware of this accommodation. There is a link on the blog but there are two types of accommodation depending on your preference. There are also hikes or donkey rides down into the canyon from this location. It was truly amazing - to wake up and walk out your front door and be faced with the most amazing views of the canyon. It is something I will remember always!
Enjoy your travels.
