Questions, questions, questions - I hope that someone can help me?!
We are travelling 2 weeks tomorrow to San Francisco to spend our summer holidays, 43 nights travelling along the west coast and around California/Nevada/Arizona.
Beacause it is such a long period of time I have tried to plan, but don't know if I have packed too much in or have missed some very important parts out bearing in mind having the boys with us, and are there things on our route/in the locations that we really should experience?
San Francisco - 4 nights hotel booked
Napa Valley - 2 nights possibly Calistoga?
Santa Rosa - 1 night Safari West booked
Sacremento - 1 night
Yosemite -3 nights cabin booked
*Realise that need stop over on way to Death Valley any ideas?*
Death Valley - 1 night
Las Vegas - 4 nights
Kingman - 2nights
Flagstaff - 2nights
Phoenix - 1 night
Tuscon - 2 nights visit Tombstone
Yuma - 2 nights via Gila Bend
San Diego - 3 nights
Palm Springs - 2 nights
Los Angeles - 5 nights
Caliente - Rankin Ranch 3 nights - only one I could find that didn't deviate off route too much
San Simeon - 1 night
San Francisco 2 nights
The first 2 weeks my parents are travelling with us, so 4 adults and 2 boys 10 and 7 and they leave us in Las Vegas to fly home.
At the moment things are very flexible apart from Santa Rosa and Yosemite that are booked but want to try and book L.A and San Diego this week.
We would also like to rent an RV for part of our journey, just because we can't experience it here and it may not feel so much like living out of a suitcase! if it's practical is there a better part of the journey to rent one for?
Thank you for any advice.
