    Default Dallas to San Diego

    Hi, everyone! I'm thinking of doing a Spring Road Trip for 2 weeks at the end of April. We'll drive from Dallas to San Diego and then fly back (or possibly the other way around). Any recommendations of things to see or do between the two?

    This is the first major road trip with my kids (ages 17 and 10) so any suggestions that you have are appreciated.

    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    There's a lot of ground to cover in between those two locations, so figuring out what interests each of you would be a good place to start. What has given you San Diego as one of the locations for your visit? If you can answer what interests you there - and "just because" is valid - it can help start the conversation and suggestions we are able to offer.

    Keep in mind with a one-way rental that there generally are extra fees that can be quite costly.

    If you do a round trip, it's possible to drive one way in 3 easy days or 2 very long days (not really recommended without multiple drivers). This could save you a considerable amount - no airfare or one-way car dropoff fee.

    You could also spend a bit more time and take a different route back to see some different things.

  4. Default Sd/oc/la

    Having lived in SoCal for two decades, there's a lot of things to do in SD for free and little cost like visit Balboa Park and Coronado Island. But if you're bored with SD, LA is only 130 miles away (2 hours if you drive at non-traffic times and head back late at night to SD). There's an abundance of things to do in LA/SD and even OC that I can't really even begin to tell you where without knowing more of your interests to narrow it.
