Hi, everyone. I wanted to see if I could get some feedback and tips on a cross-California trip we are planning for late September and early October. It would be a 14-day trek across the entire state, so we'd be constantly moving for the most part. Let me just list the places we have on the itinerary, and the approximate route, and maybe you can suggest some ways to improve the trip. Basically, are we missing anything essential that would make this road trip complete. Also, since we've never been to California, I'd love it if anyone could suggest places to see along the route.
Day 1: San Diego & Anaheim
Day 2: Long Beach & Pasadena
Days 3-4: Hollywood & Los Angeles
Day 5: Santa Monica, Ventura & Santa Barbara
Day 6-7: Bakersfield & Sequoia National Park
Day 8-9: Death Valley & Yosemite National Park
Day 10: Lake Tahoe, Squaw Valley & Redding
Day 11: Sacramento & Napa Valley
Day 12-13: San Francisco
Day 14: Berkley, Oakland & San Jose
As you can see, this covers a lot of ground. Approximately 2,000 miles. Is this a realistic schedule? We want to see as much as possible. Thanks!
