Me, my girlfriend and our 6 months old son are planning a roadtrip from Las Vegas to San Francisco in February. I've understood this is quite a hot topic here in the forum, but I don't seem to find an answer that suits our wishes perfectly. Hopefully we can get some answers here!
As I understand there are 2 possible main routes. The first going to Bakersfield and doing the coastroute(which we know pretty well now), and the second going to Death Valley and through there getting to San Fran. We really wanna see the Death Valley surroundings, and maybe experience something else than the previous 2 weeks(San Diego and LA). That means we would prefer the second option.
The thing is, we are only supposed to spend 2 days(1 night) on this, because of some arrangements further on i San Fran. And also, we can't have to long drives each day because of our 6 months old son. Anyone who could help with advice on this ?
1. What is the quickest route going through Death Valley.
2. What other attractions to see on the way when we already are in the mountains?
3. Is the winter potentially a problem in these areas in February ? (closed roads and so on)
Prayers from Norway for positive answers:)
