Suggested itinerary for sightseeing with an elderly mom

Jump to last reply

Hello, I've just moved to Alhambra, CA, and I'm new to California in general. My elderly mom and my sister are planning to visit and to do some sightseeing as well. We are all from outside the US, so we'd like to get a unique and memorable American experience. The main problem is that my mom has difficulty walking long distances, and therefore any sightseeing involving a lot of walking/climbing inclines is out of the question. I will be driving, so therefore can you guys suggest an itinerary for us? This is for a one-week-ish holiday. An ideal itinerary would involve a couple of days in the L.A. area, another couple in the Bay area, and maybe even a couple of days in a neighboring state. I HATE fighting traffic and trying to find parking, so please suggest "easy" driving trips (keep in mind Mom can't walk too much, so parking has to be readily available and close by).

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance!
