I figured one week would not be enough time. She only has a week's vacation and she desperately wanted to see friends that live up in Tacoma in Ruston. I tried telling her we would need at least 2 weeks to take the coast take our time, things to see and enjoy and enjoy ourselves. So in that how about Lake Tahoe she has never been there little bit closer any suggestions? Coastal up to Big Sur or surrounding areas? Somewhere with lots of trees lots of green and hopefully water View sorry for any typos I'm talking into my cell phone

How about taking the 14 N. to hwy. 395 N. all the way to Carson City, NV. Then take the 50 W. to cut over to Lake Tahoe. That's the most enjoyable and a designated scenic route. Alternately, you can stay on 395 to Reno, (another 45 minutes north), then take the 80W. to North Lake Tahoe. Truckee is a fun stopover nearby. If you are traveling with dogs, I recommend the Zephyr campground in South Lake Tahoe. It's one of the few campgrounds and beaches(the north end) that allow dogs. While traveling north along the eastern sierra of CA there are many nice campgrounds to stop and camp, particularly in the Mammoth Lakes area, where you could stop the first night; it's about 250 miles, then reach Lake Tahoe the second day- it's approx. 150 miles.

Yes I was just researching that there is a place called Zephyr RV Resort? Has 5 stars on Yelp High recommendations minor drawback is dogs are not allowed near the water Cove but that's fine. Thank you I'm going to look into that further

Zephyr Cove RV Resort is fine, a little pricey though. Yes, you can take dogs on the north end of the beach- just not near the pier or south side. All the locals take their dogs there to swim and play. Another less expensive option is camping at the casino RV parks in the scenic Carson Valley or at Topaz Lake Casino RV park on the CA-NV stateline; 25 min. South of the Carson Valley- then cutting over to Lake Tahoe.

Stay away from the Hilltop area (MLK Way) at night and East Tacoma. Pacific Avenue right around where the University of Washington branch campus is located has become a troublesome spot.

There is a very nice walk along the water from Ruston toward Tacoma proper and a number of good restaurants. For more upscale fare, C.I. Shenanigans is nice. For pub grub, you can't beat The Ram. The Lobster Shop is overpriced. Katy Downs has pizza. They are all located within about one mile or one another.
