Travel West Coast

Jump to last reply

I am an Australian travelling to the West Coast for 4 weeks. I am accompanied with my wife and 2 kids below 12yrs and parents. I plan to travel next year some time in the month of March 2015 to April 2015. I need to book car, hotel and flights.

Other than Disney Land, I want to do a lot of sight seeing. Places intended to travel rather than relaxing activities

1) Hawaii (Optional)
2) San Diego (optional)
3) anaheim (Disney land)
4) Los Angeles
5) Grand Canyon
6) Las Vegas
7) San Fransico
8) San Jose (Optional)
9) Portland (Optional - more for shopping due no sales tax)
10) Seattle
11) Vancouver (optional)
10) Please suggest any other to see

I have not planned the activities but dont intend to visit the beaches as we have plenty of them in Sydney.

I have seen some forums saying that returning a car for a rental company is a good option.
Accomodation - Since we will driving alot - any recommendation of joining a club for discounts/ hotel chain/ short term rental places.

I have lived in the US (Virginia) before so I have travelled the east a bit.

Thanks in advance.
Cheers
Steve
