We are a family of 5 (3 teenagers) travelling from New Zealand for the month of April. Have read numerous posts on this site to try and ascertain a interesting month of travels. We fly into LA and spend 4 nights. Then drive up the coast road stopping overnight at Pismo Beach, then next night at Capitola Beach, then onto San Francisco for 4 nights. Due to the Tioga pass being closed, we are driving to Death Valley and staying overnight in Ridgecrest, then onto Death Valley for 1 night. Off to Las Vegas for 5 nights to relax(have been to the Grand Canyon) then driving via Hoover Dam to Lake Havasu, Parker and then onto Twentynine Palms overnight. Explore Joshua Tree NP next day and then drive through Palm Springs and down through the Anzo State Park to San Diego. 3 nights in San Diego then back up the coast to LA for 6 nights.
Does this all sound like a good plan, also any particular things that we should not miss, or avoid???
Thanks for your help.
