We (2 adults, 3 kids below 8) are planning a round roadtrip from Dallas area to San Francisco and back during next July. Current route is something like this. Time to be spent is approx. 3 weeks, including 4-5 days to be spent @SF.
I would like to have comments about the route, destinations/waypoints are points of personal interests where I like to visit (some added just to , but what I'm missing if route is like this? How would you drive the route if not like this, and why?
Three weeks is short time so I already had to skip few places that I would like to visit, but Grand Canyon, San Francisco and Yosemite are "mandatory". OK and TX sights I also have skipped, we can do weekend trip(s) to see those. First and last legs will be the longest. Target is to drive those without staying a night along the way. What is your opinion, is Dallas - Flagstaff too long for one leg or is it doable? We have 2 drivers, so I think it should be doable with few pit stops.
