31 day trip around Western USA

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! Our family of 4 (including 2 teenagers) will be visiting the US in Sept/Oct and would appreciate your comments on our proposed itinerary.
Day 1 & 2 in LA, checking out Hollywood and Universal Studios. Day 3 to 5 - Disneyland. Day 6 - hire a car from LAX and drive along the coast to San Luis Obispo. Day 7 - Hearst Castle, Carmel and stay in Santa Cruz area. Day 8 & 9 - San Francisco including an Alcatraz night tour. Day 10, 11 &12 - Yosemite NP (is it worth driving out to Bodie and Mono Lake before heading down through Death Valley)? Day 13 - Death Valley NP. Days 14 & 15 - Las Vegas. Day 16 - Hoover Dam, then on to the Grand Canyon. Day 17 - down to Sedona. Day 18 - on to Phoenix (is there much to see there besides the Rawhide Western Town, and what type of sporting events might be happening in late Sept)? Day 19 - head across to San Diego. Days 20 to 28 in San Diego (is the public transport good in SD or should we keep the hire car)? Will be seeing the Air Show, USS Midway, zoo, wildlife park, seaworld, harbor cruise, Air & Space museum, Balboa Park, Gaslamp Qtr. Days 29 to 31 - back to LA to see the Queen Mary, do some shopping and check out the beaches.
Any ideas would be appreciated, thankyou!
