Me, my wife, my 16/13/10 yr old, and my fit 73 yr old in laws will be in Sacramento 7/13-17 for a big cattle show (my kids will be involved during most of those days). We will arrive in California 7/8 and will leave 7/21. Have never been to Cali with the kids. Can fly in anywhere, drive, and leave from most anywhere. Which direction(s) should I go and what are must sees. I wonder if the Redwood drive, San Fran, Mendocino stretch would make a 4 day jaunt. Then day trip once to Lake Tahoe or Yosemite while in Sacramento for the cattle show. Then go south to Hearst Castle with a stop or 2 along the coast during the 4 days after the show. Could fly in to Sacramento and head to northeast coast. At the end of the trip could drive back from the southern end of the trip and fly out of Sacramento or Oakland or whatever. No experience here. Need big time help ASAP.
