Hi, I'm driving from San Fran to Vegas Thanksgiving week with my toddlers and husband in a rental van, and would really love to visit the Sequoia National Park en route. If it were possible I'd also like to see Carmel/Monterrey/Big Sur. (I had wanted to go to Tahoe or Yosemite but gave up on that idea given the Tioga Pass closing and concern about needing snow tires.)
We'll have four days - 3 nights to get from San Francisco to Vegas -leaving Sunday 11/18 and arriving Wednesday 11/21.
If anyone has any ideas about the best route to go (and where to stay nights of 11/18, 11/19 and 11/20) I would appreciate it. Ideally I'd like to try to stay two nights in the same place as it's hard with little kids to move around so much.
