YOU HELPED WITH CALIFORNIA DRIVING TRIP

Jump to last reply

Thanks for all your help with our California Driving Trip. Lots of good suggestions and with your help, I think we came up with a workable itinerary.

As you suggested JanisJ, we looked up Yosemite Lodge on their website to book 2 rooms for 2 days, any dates the last 2 weeks of July through first 2 weeks of August. The Lodge was entirely booked. So, I called their phone number and was able to get a cancellation for 2 rooms at the Lodge on 8/4 and 8/5. So we will plan our trip around those dates. We are thinking about San Francisco for 3 days, Monteray/Carmel by the Sea for 2 Days, Cambria area for 2 days (Hearst Castle, Paso Robles Winery?), Yosemite for 2 days, Lake Tahoe for 2 days. So, if anyone has suggestions on lodging in those areas, and activities not to miss, that would be great. $150-$200 per night for lodging is about our limit....less is OK too !! Easytraveler thanks for the tips on what to wear during hiking, Banana slugs look interesting (ugh), also good tips on Poison Oak. Spirobulldog, where is Elkhorn Slough and why is that your favorite spot for kayaking? Thanks again one and all.
