Hi, we are a family of 4 (2 teenagers) arriving in LA on 13th Dec from Australia. We have just on 5 weeks, We plan to drive to Vancouver leaving on the 13th, we need to be there for 20th and leaving around 29th. Some of the places we would like to visit are San Francisco, Portland and Seattle and Las Vegas and we will be ending the trip with 6 days in L.A. My questions are, Which would be the best order to do the trip, and which routes to drive, taking into account the weather, we have never driven in the snow , and dont want to do anything risky, we would like to see some real America and not just do touristy things, but I know we are coming at the wrong time of year and have to take into account road conditions.
Looking on Mapquest there is a direct route between Vegas and Vancouver,
I-90 I-82 and I-84. is this a good idea at this time of year?
