3 1/2 week California trip

Jump to last reply

My partner and I (late 20’s) are planning a 3 1/2 week California trip in September 2012. We are really active - love walking, hiking, the beach, biking etc. We like cities but we really want to see as much of the National Parks in California as possible. We will rent a car to get around. This is our itinerary so far:

1. Montreal to LA
2. LA
3. LA
4. LA to Death Valley NP (5 hour drive)
5. DVNP
6. DVNP
7. DVNP to Sequoia/Kings Canyon (6 hour drive)
8. Sequoia/Kings Canyon
9. Sequoia to Yosemite (4 hour drive)
10. Yosemite
11. Yosemite
12. Yosemite
13. Yosemite to Sonoma (4 ½ hour drive)
14. Sonoma to San Fran (1 hour drive)
15. San Fran
16. San Fran
17. San Fran
18. San Fran – Monterey (2 hour drive)
19. Monterey
20. Monterey
21. Monterey
22. Monterey to Santa Barbara (4 hour drive)
23. Santa Barbara (for the Channel Islands)
24. Santa Barbara
25. Santa Barbara – LA – MTL

My questions:

1. Is 2 full days in Death Valley enough?
2. Is 3 days too much in Monterey (to see Carmel, Hearst Castle etc.)?
3. Is 1 full day in Sequoia/Kings Canyon enough? Do I need to go here if we are spending time in Yosemite? Are they too similar?
4. We have only planned a short stop in Sonoma. We have read that Sonoma is nicer than Napa. Don’t want to spend too much time in this area though as we are Australian and have plenty of wine country down our way. We just wanted a short stop to break up Yosemite to San Fran.
5. Fort Bragg /area up to Fort Bragg – is this worth a trip from San Fran? If so, how many days?
6. 2 days in LA – worth it?
7. Are my drive times pretty accurate? We’re not scared of driving!

Thanks!
