We are coming to South Lake Tahoe over Christmas and leaving on Sunday the 30th of December to drive into San Francisco. We have just booked tickets to the NFL game on the same day (assuming it was a night game) to realise the game is at 1:30pm!! Ooops so it looks like our leisurely drive may need to skip the sightseeing along the way but really just wondering how long we should allow? Google maps suggests just over 3.5 hours, but how will traffic be? And are there any must see places along the way that we should schedule a stop in for??
