The West Coast or Pacific Coast of the US is the coastline along which the Western United States meets the North Pacific Ocean. But more specifically this term refers to the state of California.
It was last year when I decided to take a trip through the west coast of US. I was staying with my sister in San Jose which is an hours drive from San Francisco. Being so near to places like LOs Angeles and Las Vegas how was it not possible to take a trip to these places. But as I had no company with me to travel for so long I had to take a solo trip.
I was there for almost 18 days but, not long considering how much ground I had to cover, but I’m pretty good at packing a lot in to a short space of time. There was so much to do and see that it was confusing!
While I was in San Jose I covered San Francisco, beach town of Carmel while driving on the California one highway, Stanford University, Palo Alto down town, Mountain view downtown , Santa Cruz beach and Lake Tahoe. This was all covered in a weeks time.
The second week I had a solo road trip planned to LA , Vegas and the Grand Canyon.
Here’s my California road trip itinerary. I hope you pick up some ideas of things to do and places to visit on your adventure. You can amend accordingly, depending on your priorities and the number of days you have!
