We are an Australian family of six with four children aged 11,9, 6 & 4 who will be hiring an RV from San Francisco for 11 days in mid December. We are planning to make our way down the coast (highway 1) and across to Las Vegas. (You probably think we are mad!!!)
We are looking for ideas of where we should stop along the way and which route we should take to get to Las Vegas. (We are keen to take a day trip into Mexico). In particular we are looking for a spot to spend Christmas Day which will be child friendly.
We want to make this a memorable trip for the kids (I'm sure it will be!). We thought maybe staying on a cowboy ranch but can't seem to find one which will take RV's or maybe near hot springs (something we don't get here!).
This RV rental is only part of our 5 1/2 week trip. We will visit Disney early December then drive to San Fran via Yosemite - is this a good idea at that time of the year? Will also have a week in a cabin near Grand Canyon and a week skiing at Mammoth.
Would love to hear any ideas. We are looking forward to a great trip!
