Visit California.... California is big – real big. If you were to drive the length of the state along Interstate 5, it would take you about 15 hours to get from Oregon to Mexico (provided you don't hit traffic!). At the end of your road trip, you'd have driven nearly 800 miles (1287 km).
Downtown San Diego is lies just under 20 miles (32 km) north of the Mexican border and about 130 miles (210 km) south of Los Angeles. From Los Angeles, it's 385 miles (620 km) north to San Francisco and from there, it's another 90 miles (145 km) northeast to Sacramento. You'd put about 190 miles (305 km) on your car driving from San Francisco to Yosemite and about 600 miles (965 km) driving from Los Angeles to Mount Shasta in Northern California. Needless to say, this is road trip heaven.
