We (my wife and me) are planning a road trip during thanksgiving holidays (4 days). Our first choice was Yellowstone. But it seems that all touristy places are closed during that time.
Now we have decided to go to Reno-Lake Tahoe (Northstar resort) as they will be open for skiing during thanksgiving. I am thinking of driving straight from San Diego to Reno.
Day 1: 3 AM to 2 PM - San Diego to Lake Tahoe or Reno
Day 4: 9 AM to 6 PM - Drive back from Reno to San Diego
Can you suggest if it is a good idea or I should split it so as to start on Day 0 night and take a stopover for sleep somewhere? What could be the budget place if that is so?
Can we include some other places on the route while we only have fixed 4 days ? We have been to Yosemite and San Francisco before. Any ideas to make this trip more enjoyable?
