We are starting a road trip in SFO on the holiday weekend, and the closer I come to it, the more I realise we have no idea what to expect.
Arriving from Scandinavia on the 1st July, I have only made plans for a few dates so far.
1st - Arrive SFO evening
2nd - Alcatraz, sightseeing SFO
3rd - Pick up car from airport, and plan to see Muir Woods, Golden Gate and maybe a little further north. Hotel in SFO
5th - Hotel near South lake Tahoe booked.
We are flying back on the 23rd from SFO, and plan to head as far as the Grand Canyon, before heading back towards San Diego and up highway 1.
But my main question is about the 4th July holiday.
We have 2 small kids (11 and 8), and from what I expect, will be still pretty early to bed by the 4th (10 hour time difference for us)
We have the hotel in SFO booked until the 5th, but is there a better option than staying in the city for a family with small children (who are not so good at standing in crowds for long periods).
Should we maybe look at moving out towards Yosemite there, or a smaller town to get some local atmosphere?
Any input more than welcome..
