My mother, my son (11) and daughter (7) and I are taking a trip to California in August.
The plan is to fly into LA.
Stay 3 nights (Beverly Garland Holiday Inn).
Things we want to do include: hike Runyon Canyon, Venice Beach, Santa Monica Pier. No other set things.
Then 2 nights at Pismo Beach (Lighthouse Suites) with no specific plans for that time.
Then drive to Monterey Aquarium and stay over night in Monterey 1 night.
Last drive to SF and stay 2 nights. We want to visit the Muir Woods and Alcatraz. Then fly home.
Is this too much? Will the driving be incredibly tiresome? Sounds good originally but i'm just second guessing myself and my planning.
Any other suggestions of must see's. ?
