Early stages of planning a trip with our 6.5 year old grandson next June. Thought we would fly from Atlanta to Sacramento and then take Amtrak from Sacramento to Fresno. (we thought he would really like the train). Then plan to rent a car in Fresno and drive to as of yet undetermined lodging closer to parks. Will probably stay 4-5 nights. I have a few questions: 1. The train does not get to Fresno until 8:00. Should we stay in Fresno or drive to lodging closer to parks that night. Is Fresno fairly safe at night? 2. Should we invest in taking tours or try to see it on our own since we will have a rental car. Not sure if the tours would be too much for a 6 year old. www.sequoiatours.com 3. Can we rent a car from the Amtrak station in Fresno? Any suggestions to above?
