Seattle to Los Angeles and back . . . ideas for family stopping places?

Jump to last reply

We are going on a road trip from north of Seattle to Los Angeles and back . . . wondered if there were any ideas about good stopping places / decent areas to stay on the way there and back.

My husband and I will be traveling with our 8 year old, 11 year old, and a 14 year old in some kind of SUV rental vehicle (they get motion sick in cars but are less so in a taller vehicle). We have about 16 days maximum to play with from mid to late June but haven't decided yet for sure how long we want to be gone. Staying with relatives in the Los Angeles area, and we aren't doing Disneyland. Went once two years ago and that was enough for us : )

Things we'd like to see -- the redwoods by Yosemite, Legoland (optional), San Diego Zoo (Optional), the coast, the Grand Canyon (optional, but requested by the kiddos), seeing the Golden Gate Bridge, etc . . . haven't really finalized our itinerary yet. I know we can't do all of it!

It is hard to know what is really doable! We'd prefer to do a few things really well rather than checking off as many items as possible on our want to see list. Think we and the kids can handle driving 8 - 10 hours at a time, but less is always better. We are pretty familiar with the Seattle/Portland area but haven't seen much farther south in Oregon.

Any ideas of things that we can do / good places to stop in decent areas of town? Planning to stay in midline hotels - non smoking if possible - with probably no more than 5 days in Los Angeles itself . . .

How would you do a similar trip? We have AAA so I'll be ordering their maps and info this week, and I'm going to try to reserve hotels early so I don't have to play find the hotel on the way down . . .

Thanks for any ideas!
