Hi all. We are travelling to the States in June/July 2014. I am having trouble planning the southern part of our holiday. We are leaving Vegas on 5th July and need to be in San Fran to regroup with friends on around 13 or 14 July. We are really keen to see the southern coast line so at this stage we are thinking of flying from Vegas to Texas (perhaps Austin?) and then driving the southern coast and flying to San Fran from Florida (not sure where exactly in Florida?). So what I'm wondering is if we are going to have enough time to see much of the coast line. Do you think Austin is a viable option or is this drive from Austin too far? Also I would love some recommendations for accommodation and places to visit along the way.
I have the rest of our trip planned to within an inch of it's life but i'm really struggling with this leg!
We are traveling with our two children, aged 5 & 8, we love the outdoors - particularly the beach. We are from a hot/humid climate so heat will not be a problem for us. We realise that this is a very busy time of the year - do these beaches along the southern coast line get very busy at that time of the year?
I would REALLY appreciate any help/advice that you can offer. Thanks in advance, Jahna
