California Dreamin' - from Yosemite to LA

Jump to last reply

Hello all,

We are going on a 30 day roadtrip, starting with the Grand Circle in Utah, followed by Yellowstone and ending with Yosmite and a drive from San Francisco to LA on Hwy 1.

I would like some input on where to stop and what to see on the way from San Francisco to LA. We are a family of five (kids 14, 12 and 10), and it is our first time in the US.

For now, this part of our itinerary looks like this:

day 22 drive from South Lake Tahoe to Yosemite (enter Yosemite on Tioga Pass), spend afternoon in Yosemite, lodge in Mariposa (no in-park lodging found so far)

day 23 full day in Yosemite (Mariposa - park - Mariposa)

day 24 drive from Mariposa to San Francisco, spend afternoon sight-seeing in SF

day 25 more SF, visit Alcatraz

day 26 drive south on Hwy 1 and stop somewhere on the way, maybe Pismo beach

day 27 continue driving south, second stop before LA, maybe Santa Barbara

day 28 continue drive to LA, some sight-seeing (Hollywood Blvd etc)

day 29 LA, visit Universal Studios

day 30 drive from LA to LV

day 31 LV

day 32 Flight back home

Any tips or suggestions are welcome - things to see, where to lodge, where to take a swim and where to eat, especially after we leave SF.

thank you in advance
