My husband and 3 young children (ages 4,7, and 9) are road tripping from San Fran to Portland at the end of June over 7 days. I have an outline, but am worried it's too much driving every day. Must I choose between Crater Lake and the Oregon sand dunes? If you could please take a look and let me know if this itinerary feels too packed, and offer any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it!
Day 1: Fly into SF (explore chinatown, drive Lombard St. an have dinner on the water)
Day 5: Crescent City - Crater Lake (Oregon Caves Nat'l monument on the way)
Day 6: Crater Lake - Florence (boat tour in crater lake AM, Dun buggy ride in Florence in PM)
Day 7: Florence - Portland (visit Multnomah Falls before crashing in Portland!)
Day 8: Fly home
I'm tired just writing all that, but it all sounds so wonderful. Please advise!
