You can spend a month driving the pacific coast of the united states, or do it in 5 days and anything in between. Take this trip. I spend so much of my vacation time abroad, sometimes forget how stunningly beautiful parts of this country are. Plan the trip in the summer or early fall, and rent a convertible if you need to rent a car. Hertz has several convertible options and easy pick-up and drop-off from different airports/locations so you don’t have to backtrack.
