My cousin, also known as my best friend, is my road trip companion. We took our first road trip back in June 2012 & another in June of 2015. We are planning yet another for the summer of 2017. We have both always wanted to travel the Pacific Coast Highway & decided that that had to be our next adventure. We thought about making it for this coming summer but decided we needed more time to plan, and more importantly, save.
The plan is to fly out of Minneapolis to Seattle & then rent a car.
Main stops along the way would include: Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, & San Diego.
We would then fly out of San Diego back to Minneapolis. As of right now I think we are planning on needing about 7 days.
The pinning has already begun!
