6 week USA travel itinerary help

Jump to last reply

Hi - wondering if anyone can offer some advice/wisdom/ideas on the following itinerary as we have never been to the states before. Looking at arriving 2 days after christmas 2013/14 coming in from Australia..We will have two kids with us aged 15 and 12.

Fly into LA stay 1 night
LA to San Francisco (flight?) 2 nights
Drive - Napa valley stay overnight (1)
Las vegas (Drive from napa? or fly ex San Fran) stay 4 nights (new years in vegas)
Return Los Angeles (Fly ex vegas or drive?)
Stay Los Angeles 5 nights to include trip to San diego (1 -2 Nights)
LA to mexico (fly) Stay 7 nights (cabo San lucus and Playa del carmen)
Mexico to New York (via LA or direct?)
Stay New York 8 nights
Travel by train to washington stay 3 nights
Travel to Orlando Florida (Fly?) Disney world 5 nights
Cruise 4 days ex orlando to Bahamas
Return to LA for flight home...

Looking at approx 6 weeks - can anyone offer any travel ideas/suggestions for travelling between these places - we definately want to get a hire car for Vegas so we can see the Grand Canyon and are aware that a hire car in LA might not be a good idea due traffic ect.

Thanks
