Yosemite and more California trip

Jump to last reply

I will probably have to have separate threads for part of this trip but I want to get started on the real plans. I had previously started a thread about visiting Yosemite in October:

http://www.fodors.com/community/united-states/october-for-yosemite.cfm

We have reservations for Yosemite Lodge at the Falls for a Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, but I am going to change those. We will now arrive on Saturday and leave on Tuesday.
If I can't get YL then I will try for Wawona on Saturday night and keep our reservation for Sunday and Monday nights at the Lodge.

Right now, the plans look like this:

Saturday: fly PIT to Fresno, spend night at Yosemite.
Sunday and Monday, Yosemite
Tuesday: stay as late as possible then drive south for a few hours to spend the night on the way to Santa Barbara. Not sure of where to stay, but Fresno has lots of moderate chain hotels and we're just looking for a bed.

Wednesday , Thursday and Friday: I want to see the area between Santa Barbara and Santa Monica, but have no idea of where to stay. I am especially interested in the missions at Santa Barbara and Ventura. Also would like to take the 3 hour wildlife cruise to Channel Islands. This is a part of CA that neither my husband nor I have visited. We want to see the missions, anything historic, and natural beauty.

We don't drink and any shopping will just be incidental. Hiking will be more like longish walks. As I said, the focus will be on nature and the missions. We really like food and have found CA to be a good food destination in the past.

On Saturday, we will spend the day in Santa Monica to visit with family, and fly out of LAX on Sunday.

This is all new territory for me (we have been to many other areas of CA) and help is appreciated.
