Itinerary opinions

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 4, my husband and 2 teens & myself. We are just starting to plan our first USA trip (its been our ultimate goal). If I list our initial itinerary (plan) could we get some feedback on whether our plans are a good idea, or are feasible etc, and suggestions as to what suburb, area we should stay and further ideas are welcomed. Here goes:-

Depart Sydney Australia to LA 18 Sept 2015
Things we'd like to do are - Universal Studios, Hollywood Tour, Santa Monica, Venice Beach, would love to catch a football game if we can somewhere, some shopping if advisable and anything else you may suggest. Say 5-6 nights here???

Onto maybe hiring a car and drive to Las Vegas
Things we'd like to do here are:- Gand Canyon ( Would love to do this by helicopter), M & M World, Fremont Street, would love to see the Michael Jackson stage show if still playing, see the Titanic Artifact Exhibit if still there, shopping if advisable, any other suggestions. Say 4 nights here.

Fly to San Fransico
