  1. Default July / August 2011 California Tour

    Hi Everyone,
    Can you please advise us for our holiday being planned for next summer. We would like to fly into Frisco and then spend a few nights there. It would be great to be able to wind through Napa, and then spend a few nights in Lake Tahoe, before travelling down to Yosemitie, spend a few nights here before driving the pacific coast highway stopping off a few nights, and ending up in San Diego.
    We plan to take around 15 days before flying home from LAX. We are a party of 4 adults and 2 teenage boys.

    How long will it take to drive from Tahoe to Yosemitie, if we have to stop the night to break the journey, where would you suggest ? Is the Tioga pass the best route ?

    It would also be great to have any suggestions for best points of interest along the way, I know there will be a lot to see and do in this wonderful area.

    Many Thanks in anticipation of your reply / advice.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    You are right, there will be plenty to see, and at this moment in time it's a good idea to search the forums, as you will find an endless amount of info in this area. To get you started this thread contains some of our favorites.

    Tahoe to Yosemite is a comfortable drive to do in a day, with time for some sight seeing. The Tioga pass is the most popular path across the Sierra's and quite spectacular, but so are some of the others, like the 4 and 108. You could look into some of the gold rush towns on 49 if you wanted to take your time, but Tioga is a big part of the Yosemite experience.

    You seem to have a good idea of what you want to do, but take a look around and you might find some fresh ideas, as you build your trip and have new questions, just ask and we can help to "fine tune" it.
