Honestly i have no idea what I am doing as this is our first family trip like that.
It's 5 of us. 2 Adults and 3 kids(17,16, 12)
We have booked a flight to San Francisco from Newark, NJ for July 30th. Arriving July 30th and we have until August 13 to be back home.
We have booked a minivan car rental till August 13 in San Rafael and the hotel in San Rafael for July 30th. After all this we have no clue where to go and what to see and how book the hotels. We have an idea that we wanted to see San Francisco, some of LA area, like Santa Monica, Santa Barbara, San Diego, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, after that some Utah, Colorado, from there to Chicago and then from there drive back home to NJ. Is it feasible? And what's reasonably possible to see in 14 days for this road trip? Or it's not enough time?
I would appreciate any suggestions. We have never been to California before, the farthest we drove from NJ was New Orleans.
Thank you in advance.
