Here is our itinerary for northern California..any suggestions

Jump to last reply

We are taking our 3 daughters (16, 13,9) to northern CA. Flights are booked and we are ready to go...I'm a bit nervous about the length of time we are spending in some places and not enough time in others. Please tell me what you think...what we should do/not do...what's worth seeing...where to eat. Tell it like it is. :) we need travel help.

We fly into Reno at 9pm, rent a car and travel to Susanville, NV and stay at the Diamond Mountain Casino...just a place to hit the bed. We are not going to be gambling.

Day 2 long drive to Trinidad, CA. On way we will explore lassen nat'l Forest, chester, sulfer pits and then check into a Holiday Inn in McKinleyville for lack of a better place. It's tough to find accomodations for a family of 5. Even VRBO were booked

Day 3 Stay in trinidad and explore the redwood Nat'l Forest and Patrick's Point

Day 4 Trinidad

Day 5 up early and head south to explore highway 1 coast to Mendocino (Humboldt Redwoods and Russian Gulch st. Forest. We check into the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek in Little River

Day 6 kayak at Mendocino at 11am and Agate beach

day 7 Up early and drive to San Francisco. We are staying in the Grosvenor Suites. That night we take the night time tour of Alcatraz

Day 8 Explore maybe Fisherman's wharf? China town? Little italy?

day 9 drive to San Jose and fly out at 6:30 am. Ugh...then back to Michigan

So...what do you think. Restaurant suggestions? One less day in Trinidad? One more day in San Fran. I'm pushing for that. 3 girls and a beautiful city vs too much nature...should be an intersting trip. lol

Would love to know your ideas.
