This is our recent three week driving tour of California. My wife and I took our two young boys.
Apart from the parks and Venice we didn't really enjoy LA. The traffic was insane and it took hours to get anywhere. The people in general were quite sullen and unfriendly. The major sights like the walk of fame look tired and well worn. Californian's don't seem to like kids much. Not our kind of town. Also, LA should be renamed New New Mexico.
An excellent hotel located next door to the Universal park entrance
Great fun, but sadly no where near as good as the Universal in Florida
Fine hotel, but quite far from the Disney parks. The bus to the parks is not as regular as you would like
Most of the major rides broke down in both parks over the two visits. Obviously in need of maintenance. Florida Disney is much better
An excellent hotel among a lot of tired hotels on the strip. Great bars and restaurants.
113'F when we drove through... *PHEW*
We drove all the way from Las Vegas to Yosemite (11 hours), but in hindsight we should have stayed in Bishop for the night. It's a nice little town with plenty of restaurants and places to stay.
Outstanding camping fun. "Rough it" for a few nights in Yosemite and after the plastic fantastic California of LA you'll have a new found lust for life.
A neat comfortable hotel near Seqouia NP. It's about 30-40 minutes from the park so use it as a stop off before or after your visit.
A lovely hotel in downtown Monterey. Excellent location and great staff
We enjoyed an excellent breakfast here
Great staff and an excellent central location for sightseeing (away from the dross of Fishermans Wharf). Some great restaurants hidden nearby.
