I have done a lot of reading but as I am running out of time I need to ask some questions. We are a family of six adults travelling to America in September and October this year. One month in total for this part of the trip
We are flying into San Francisco where we will spend 5 nights before getting a hire car. My plan is to drive up to napa valley which I believe takes around 90 minutes. Im not sure if it's best to stay the night in napa valley or to just make it a day trip out of San Fran. From here we will head out redwood national park and spend 2 days.
From redwood national park we will drive to lake Tahoe which I believe takes ten hours? Can you recommend where we should stop for the night in between lake taho and redwood national park? 2 days will be spent in lake Tahoe before heading out to Yosemite national park where I plan to spend 2 nights. I'm not sure how long it will take to do this drive though. Can't seem to find it.
From Yosemite we would like to go to Bryce/Zion national park and again not sure how long this will take and also where we should stop for the night.
I would also like to visit lake Powell and monument valley before heading to the grand canyon and Vegas. At this stage I'm not even sure if this is the right order to do this in but any help would be greatly appreciated. From Vegas we need to get to san Diego. Is there only one way to go or is there a nice scenic trip we can take
Sorry for being quite vague but i appreciate any help
