I am traveling by car with my wife 4 small children from Anaheim to SanFrancisco in early April. This is after 4 nights in Anaheim which is our first stop. I wanted to do this trip in one day with a mixture of fast roads and scenic routes. Is this pushing it? Could you suggest a route as i'm not sure whether to start on the coastal route then cut in on a faster route or vise versa. I would like to avoid those massive looking 6 lane plus freeways if possible. If your advise is to definatley stay somewhere overnight can you suggest a nice spot that is roughly half way or more that is inexpensive and kid friendly. This is part of a 20 day journey but i'll get to the other legs in later forums. Would appreciate any advice as we are Aussies travelling to the US for the first time and i'm finding this very daunting.
