will arrive on 8-3 and spending 1st night at Holiday Inn Express by Oakland Airport. I think we want to head out the next day south to Monterey. I would love to drive as much of Hwy 1 right on the coast as possible. About how much time would this take....also would early morning fog be problem. we are from Kansas so our bodies will be on a 2 hour time difference. so we should be up pretty early in your area.
Hopefully 1 night in Monterey would be enough. Want to see the aquarium and the 17 mile drive and some of carmel. Should we cross the Oakland bridge and get on 1 up north or go around the bay and hit it farther south???
Then go to Yosemite. I imagine that if we can get a place to stay there - that we would only need 1 night. We are a couple of fun loving sight seeing old broads...lol - of 72 & 60 and me being the younger have asthma...so won't be doing lots of hiking. just looking -
then want to come back up SF way and maybe take a city tour and see alcatraz..would a bay cruise also be a good one our will the trip to alcatraz suffice? might need 2 days in SF - want to see Muir Woods and maybe drive around the country a little north of SF (wine country) and if enuff time over to Tahoe for 1 night. Fly out on 8-10, so have reservation again at Holiday INN Express in Oakland for the night prior.
Not sure where we will stay when back in SF...would like to use a 4 points Sheraton/Sheraton property...i see there are a few a little south and one at FW and at SF airport.
I assume from SF airport the Bart would be best to get to FW. Is there any all day parking in the area....also if we were across the bay - i believe we could take a Ferry across and can park at a garage fairly close to the Ferry.
Any thoughts would be appreciated....also, are their any cafeterias in California??
Thx so much...kc
