road trip houston - california

Hi,

We are planning road trip from Houston to California, with few stops in between. We were thinking of visiting LA/Hollywood, San Francisco, Yosemite, Las vegas and grand canyon on the way back.

We have 1 whole month of July to do this. Have anyone done this?

I am looking advice on places to stop and accommodations as we will be driving. We hv a son of 5 yrs old. Need also advice of where to stop from Houston to Hollywood. We probably needs 2 or 3 days to accomplish the first journey.

Thanks in advance

I understand that finding accommodation in Yosemite will be challenging, but if there is any idea of where to stay to visit Yosemite for 2 or 3 days, would be great too.

Hi

Not sure what you mean. Are you flying Houston, then drive to the west coast, explore things and drive back to Houston? Tx will be very hot and humid that time of year. Houston to the coast (LA) is at least a 3 days drive and many things to explore on your way.

You're starting your road trip in Houston, then returning to Houston, all by car?

Houston to LA is 24 hours driving time, or three days of driving eight hours plus stops - with a five year old you might want to figure on three and a half or four days.
