Planning a California Trip

Jump to last reply

Hi all! My boyfriend and I are looking to plan our 2nd trip to California for next summer, and we're trying to figure out how to divide up our time.

We plan to fly into LA, and out of either San Fran or Oakland.

Tentatively, we're looking at the following:

June 27: Fly into LA

June 28: LA

June 29: Drive from LA to Sequoia National Park, overnight in the park

June 30: Drive from Sequoia National Park to Yosemite

July 1: Yosemite

July 2: Yosemite

July 3: Yosemite

July 4: Drive from Yosemite to Oakland overnight in Oakland

July 5: Fly home

The reason for LA and Oakland specifically is to visit baseball stadiums in each town (we're trying to visit every MLB stadium).

Does this look like a good plan? We want to spend as much time in the parks as possible-we spent 3 days in Yosemite last year and loved it..

Also, I've heard that for the Oakland game we could stay in San Fran, which is where we visited this past summer as well to see a Giants game..but we don't really have anything else we'd like to see in San Fran. Is Oakland ok to stay in? If not, is public transportation to and from the Oakland stadium easy to manage?

Thanks in advance!
