After some advice please on putting a two week trip together. Thinking of flying into LA then Coast Starlight Train to head to SF and fly home from SF.
1.Any suggestions for where to stop off from the train for a day or two's rest at the start of the holidays on that journey - Looking at possitbly Monterey ?
2. Thinking then of picking up a car at Monterey and driving to Sanfrancisco or is there another way someone can recommend around the coast...Didn't really want to get back on the train.
3. From San Franciso our plans are to check out wine country but wonder is it best to jump on a trip to make the most of the tasting?
4. then looking to see Redwoods State Park, Sacramento, Lake Tahoe and Yosemite - is it best to hire a car from SF and make up our trip - if so can anyone recommend where its worth spending a night or two or really good spots to stop and make sure we take in along the way ?
All help appreciated ! Gill
