I'm planning for a West Coast road trip this December (~12/20-12/30). I plan on flying from Dallas to Los Angeles /Phoenix/San Francisco (depending on the air ticket prices !).
I initially planned on driving all the way up to Crate Lake NP and Portland. But after reading some articles online, looks like most of the roads will be closed due to snow. So I'll probably just cover as much of California as I can.
I want to cover the major cities, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and also drive down US 1.
Is there something you would suggest I include in this trip? Would it be the right time to visit Yosemite or Lake Tahoe?
