I am from Brazil but I live in NY and I will be moving back to Brazil in February and before my return I am planning a trip on HWY 1 starting in SF and ending in LA (or nearby) from Dec 26th to Jan 3rd. We will be 4 (my husband and I and our 2 daughters, ages 10 and 13).
Here is what I would love to get help with:
- Is it worth it or possible to drive up to the Redwood National Park before heading south? I feel we need to go there, I ve heard it is beautiful!
- Is it worth it to rent a RV instead of a economic car and save in hotels? I am sure my daughters will love it but I am not sure how much it will cost yet. I searched online and it said around $850 for 7 nights but it was a general search.
- Once we take the HWY 1, I would love to get tips on places we should stop, where to sleep, things to do, etc.
- Lastly, since we have about 7 days, how long will the trip south take it? What would be your ideal plan for a 7 day trip on the west coast?
Thank you soooo much!!
