I'm currently planning our silver wedding celebrations with our first trip to California from England.
Plan is to fly into Las Vegas stay 4 nights Grand Canyon while we are there. Then we have 7 nights to cover San Diego, LA, coastal route then from Monterey area go across to Yosemite stay around that area for 1 night then San Francisco for our final 3 nights.
My Dilemma is where to stay and for how long at each place inbetween .Are we best driving straight to San DIego without an overnight stop ?Not too concerened about Seaworld, but have heard wonderful things about San Diego so definitely dont want to travel straight to LA. want to see usual Hollywood sights , Venice beach then I'm not sure.
I am into nice beaches good scenery famous places etc ! Hubby is into American cars/ Hot Rods/ Drag racing etc !!!! so need to include some of that in there somewhere !!!.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Was hoping to plan as we wnt along but I'm concerned we wont find any places to stay in August if we dont prebook !
