I'm new and very very very excited about July - August 2011. I have been looking into various routes, places etc to see and do and I have settled for the following but need some help filling in the gaps!
Fly into Las Vegas and stay for 3 nights. A day trip to visit the Grand Canyon and maybe a visit to the Hoover Dam also.....is this feasible? Any hotel which is a must or a must not considering we will have a nearly 5 year old.
From Las Vegas head on up to Yosmite Park. Shall we just hit the road and do it in one drive or are there places in between for an overnight break anyone would recommend? Would zig zagging across to the Sequoia National Park be too much before heading up to Yosmite?
From Yosmite heading to San Fran.....plan is to stay here for 3 nights also.
From San Fran we intend to spend the remaining time heading down the Hwy 1...Monterey, Carmel Big Sur, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and finally finishing in LA as we would be leaving from here to fly home. I'm not too fussed about LA...the only thing I would want to do whilst down in that area would be to do Disney Land.
Any comments, recommendations, dos and aboslutley do nots would be greatly appreciated!
