Thinking of a lovely self-drive tour from Seattle through Oregon and California while enjoying the exquisite Pacific Coast view? Pacific Coast Trail is all about reminiscing about beautiful old times, while visiting locations where that music was first played.
That being said, you should start your journey by visiting Seattle, home to Pearl Jam and Nirvana, before discovering the Museum of Pop Culture. From there, visit the Olympic National Park on your way to Portland. If you’re lucky enough to drive this road in September, then don’t forget to spend your holiday in the Monterey Jazz Festival. The final stop of course is The Entertainment Capital of the World – Las Vegas.
