Driving from Vancouver to Los Angeles is not only an epic experience. It will take you to one of the most scenic road trips in North America. I-5 is the shortest and fastest route but if you are looking to combine a few scenic routes here is one suggested route:
Drive on I-5 to Seattle and follow I-30W (Columbia River Highway) to Astoria, the oldest American town west of the Rockies. Located on Oregon’s North Coast where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean, Astoria was founded 200 years ago as an important fishery and timber industry center of Oregon. Today it is known as “little San Francisco” – the historical and cultural center of Oregon.
From Astoria, take the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway on US-101S (Oregon Coast Highway) and check out the natural landmarks like the seaside cliffs, agricultural valleys and farmlands, marsh, dunes and unique rock formations, rainforests, spruce and fir forests. This route will take you all the way down to Brookings, which is about 5 miles from the redwood forests of California.
You can either continue with the scenic coastal route to San Francisco or take a faster route from Brookings to Los Angeles CA.
