my family and I ( three girls aged 13, 17 19) are doing a round road trip LA - Las Vegas - San Fran - LA.
My question is if it is possible, viable and worthwhile doing a different leg from that most often travelled between Las Vegas and San Francisco.
We do not want to retrace paths already driven and are thinking of the follwoing:
Las Vegas 28th July to San Fancisco travelling either 395 or 95 over two days and arriving in San Fran 30th. Preferably 395 as this wold allow us to drive through Yoesmite and some potentially lovely places.
Is our timing viable? Are there good places to stay on this route? The alternative as Google and other maps suggest is up to Yosemite via I 5 which looks boring.
From San Fran we will drive to LA probably on I5 as the coast route looks too long. Agreed?
