  1. Default California road trip - 1st timer

    My GF & I are planning a vacation to CA in late August '08, we are flying into either San Francisco or Sacramento (which ever is cheapest), and then hoping to drive around to visit some particular spots including:

    Sacramento (it's a must, visiting family)
    Lake Tahoe
    Napa / Sonoma (if time allows, not 100%)

    Any suggested itineraries? Routes? Must "do's"? Places to stay (doesn't have to be 5 star, we're seeking adventure)? Great places to eat?

    Thanks in advance, can't wait!!

    Default First Time is Often the Best

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Central California, the area you're going to be visiting, is a glorious hodgepodge of different cultures, scenery and activities. And that makes it a good compact region for a RoadTrip. Besides the places you've mentioned, you should also plan on seeing some of thecoast, either north of San Francisco at the Golden Gate National Recreation area or Point Reyes National Seashore, or south of there around the towns of Monterey and Carmel. While in the Lake Tahoe area, take the time to visit Virginia City. For more discussions of similar trips, have a look at the threads linked to in this post.
