Hi there, I am from Ireland and a well seasoned traveller tot he USA- been in 38 states, done E to W, N to S southern states, etc. So very comfortable in The USA. Last year I did SF along highway 1 to San Diego, to Las Vegas, flew to NYC and home, so all weathers etc.
This year I am booked 5-20 April fly into and out of SFO , have family, 3,6 and 25 (yes!) year old. I have good friends in SF and want to spend some time up to easter sunday with them (12th April). Been in SF 8 times now so home from home.
My delilma is such- we would like some heat while in the USA so that means heading to LV or Southern Calif, I would also like to see Tahoe (again), Yosemite, and perhaps death valley. The natural solution would be to drive to LV and fly back to SFO- but been in LV sooo many times , love it but would like a change.
My questions are:
How cold is Tahoe and is there anything to do if not into skiing? (we are not)
How cold is Yosemite and what can we see/do in a few days driving through ?
Is there anywhere else warm that we could travel to that would amuse the kids , pool etc.
Is San Diego an option and fly back to SFO ?
What routes would I take to ensure no snow etc.
Other options are just to hang arund SF up to Napa to see friends and just enjoy time with friends and no driving. Of course my american friends will be working so I need to be self sufficent which is no hassle.
Welcome views and suggestions as only 37 days to go (so expedia tells me!)
