We are a family of four, two teenage kids, from Oxford England. This is probably our last vacation as a family (San F/Yosimite/Ventura). I've got most stuff planned but can't decide best route from Yosemite to Ventura. There are hundreds of threads but virtually none mention Death Valley which on paper looks really interesting.
Question: Is Death Valley loop worth the extra miles and given my overal route what is the best way into and out of the park and any must sees whilst there?
I've allowed two days with an overnight stop, where?
Question2: I've seen stuff on forums about people being worried about driving in US from security pov. I'm not, should I be?
