I'm taking my 12 year old son on a driving trip for spring break during the first week of April. We plan drive one way up on highway 1 until it merges to 101, and fly back to California afterwards. We plan to visit the giant redwood trees, the crater (?), Porland, Seattle, and Vancouver on the way.
Are there any particular attraction you'd recommend? Good hotel/lodging or B&B on the way? Good places to take pictures?
We're excited as we plan for this trip and would very much appreciate your help. I would love to hear from parents of my son's age who already did this.
