    • SF/LV/LA trip itinerary help

      California Sep 28, 2016 at 11:19 AM

      Hi everyone, I am travelling for the first time to California, and need a bit of assistance. I am landing at LAX at roughly 13:30, and should probably be out of the airport by 14:30. Our trip will be mid January for a total of 17 days. And I have already got flights from SFO-LAS, and then LAS-LAX. All the accommodation is already booked, now its all about the finer details to the trip.

      Part 1: The first bit of info that I need is regarding getting from LAX to San Francisco, I have been advised to take the PCH and stop over for the night in Morro Bay/Cayucos, then drive early the next day to the Monterey Bay Aquarium for a few hours before making our way to San Francisco. I have read many forums saying its not advisable to make that trip in 1 day, as theres too much to see, which I agree with... Unfortunately its that or take a flight direct to San Francisco. Please can you tell me if it is at all worth making that drive, or just taking a flight.

      Part 2: We will spend 5 nights in San francisco, and I am struggling to define what are must do's, as so many people recommend different things... right now this is my plan, please critique it,and help me make the right choices.

      Day 1: Arrive at the hotel mid day in Fishermans Wharf, spend an hour or two relaxing at the hotel, then going out to explore the Wharf, Pier 39, Ghirardelli's and maybe catch the evening tour of Alcatraz. Return and have dinner close to the hotel.
      Day 2: Head out just after sunrise, taking the Cable car from Fishermans Wharf to Market street, and will probably walk to the Ferry Building and explore there, then make our way back to Union Square, and up to china town and exploring there. Afterwards, taking the cable car to Lombard street, then head back to the hotel, relax before dinner and find a nice area to eat with some music.

      Side note -- please can you tell me if i fit too many or too little things per day

      Day 3: Up and out early again to Steiner Str to walk through the park and see the Pink Ladies. Up to Golden Gate Park and the Academy of Science, the Morrison Planetarium, and the Japanese Tea Garden. then to the Golden gate bridge, will probably rent a bicycle and cycle to the other end... We would love to from here, go to Muir woods, spend an hour there, before making our way back to the hotel, again relax a bit, then go out for dinner.
      Day 4 : This day is still up for debate, but my wife would love to see Yosemite for the day... I know that you can easily spend a week without seeing everything, but the thought is that while we are on the west coast, we should make the effort to see the park, or at least as much as we can in 1 day.
      Day 5 : Take a small group tour to Napa and spend the day exploring the wineries.

      Part 3 : Departing to Vegas at around 11am, spending 3 nights there. This part of the trip is pretty much easy enough to plan for, but the highlight would be a helicopter trip to the grand canyon.

      Part 4 : Depart Vegas to LAX, we will be spending 4 nights staying in Hollywood area, and another 4 nights saying in Anaheim. Now for this part of the journey, we LOVE theme parks, and we are dedicating 3-4 days to it.

      Day 1 : Land at LAX at 13:00, make our way to the hotel, relax for a few hours, then off to see Hollywood BLVD, for the rest of the night.
      Day 2 : Drive to Six Flags Magic Mountain ( Never been to a Six Flags before, looking forward to it).
      Day 3 : Universal Studios
      Day 4 : Tour around LA (Please help me which things to see)
      Day 5 : Move to the new hotel in Anaheim, and explore the area for the day
      Day 6 : DisneyLand
      Day 7 : Disney Adventure

      Side Note: Let me know if 2 days is too much for these 2 parks.

      Day 8 : Still debatable, was thinking of driving to San diego for the last day.

      We fly out the next morning at 1AM, so don't want to do too much on the last day... pretty much just relax.

      That you all in advance for the advise and I look forward to you responses.

    • Drive Through Death Valley in May or June?

      by sgt_johnny Online Now Aug 27, 2016 at 9:54 AM

      I wanna do a road trip in 2017. I want to go late may to early june, after visit Vegas, i wana drive through death valley. I would start early in vegas then visit dantes view, badwater, artist palette and masquite sand dunes. I would leave vegas at 6am, and have to leave mesquite dunes at about 6pm, driving to mammoth lakes for staying the night.

      Is this time enough to see those points? I heard it is really hot in may and june, but they mention it should be okay if you just want to visit the places by car, and not do long hikes or so. Is that true?

      I have to do it in late may or early june, because of the seasonal road closure in Yosmite Park..

      What do you think about it?

      We are driving with 2 kids (15 & 11 yrs) from Vegas on Thursday in the month of July. We plan to reach DV and enjoy the park that day spend the night there and then next day by noon drive to Yosemite. Reach Yosemite on Friday by evening and then enjoy the park next day on Saturday. Should we stay in Yosemite on Sunday as well or go to Lake Tahoe and then reach SFO on Monday?

      We are not interested in Hiking/Trails… See some good spots and move on..

      Where should we enter the park in DV and what should be our exit from DV and night stay? Any scenic drive to reach Yosemite? From where should we enter Yosemite? Where should we stay in Yosemite? From which point should we get out as faster route? Should we consider Lake Tahoe? Monday and Tuesday we want to enjoy SFO and then move further...

      by manishbit76 Online Now Jun 23, 2014 at 12:59 PM

      Dear Friends,

      I guess I have been bitten by the California-Yosemite “Photography” bug. I was able to squeeze in another 3-4 days of my version of a “vacation” during the July 4th weekend.

      As part of this, I will have around 3/4th of a day to photograph Death Valley NP, so wanted to get some help on the places I should cover on the following DAY

      • 5 AM to 7 AM Sunrise Photography at the South Tufa towers, Mono Lake
      • 7 AM Leave for Death Valley
      • 1 AM Night Hotel reservation at Mammoth Lakes, and I can check in any time late

      So I am looking at around 15 hours to reach DV NP, Photograph the place and return back to Mammoth Lakes. Please suggest some absolute “MUSTs” for Photography. I am into Landscape, Waterfalls, Milky way, Star Trail photography

      NOTE : I have gone through GOOGLE Maps and have a good idea about the driving distances involved.

      Planning help for Death Valley..Christmas with a wheelchair.

      by TiffanyM11 Online Now Jan 6, 2014 at 12:46 PM

      I am planning a trip for this Christmas to Death Valley. Our family includes 1 teenage girl, 1 wheelchair bound MIL and 2 trail lovers.
      Seems some things say they are wheelchair accessible: Scott's Castle, Salt you know of any others?

      My goal is (of course) to make everyone happy. I am thinking we'd get a room as nearby as (wheelchair accessibly) possible - hopefully in a cool small town to visit at that. Eat and explore the town, let everyone rest and go someplace or two together, the next day plan a can't miss hike and go back and forth like that.

      We will be driving from Northern California (Richmond) so what is closest on that side? Where can we get the most out of this trip?

      We are planning to travel from Las Vegas to Yosemite via Death Valley in early January. My idea is to take 2 days to drive. Would we be better to drive South from Death Valley and then North through Bakersfield or North from DV through Bishop and then accross on Hwy 88?
      If South, where could we stay out of Death Valley but not as far as Bakersfield?
      If North, it looks like Lone Pine is a good option.

    • Death Valley from Las Vegas in Feburary?

      by Meitantei Online Now Jan 29, 2011 at 4:02 PM

      Hello travelers! I will be going to Las Vegas with my family for a few days starting next weekend, and I'm looking into the possibility of taking a day trip to Death Valley. We were considering a tour, but we prefer to have our own freedom of where and how long to visit the sights, to top it off, none of the tours we wanted to join were available on our desired travel dates. We will be renting a regular 4-door car, not an SUV and not a 4x4.

      The plan so far is to leave at around 5am in the morning, take the CA178 and onto Bad Water Road to sightsee on the way (Badwater, Devil's golf course, Artist's palette). Hopefully we'll reach Furnace Creek at around noon, where we'll be eating and checking out the visitor's centre. In the afternoon we'll make a quick drive to Devil's cornfield (and see the sand dunes), and go back to Dante's View, and take the 190 back to Las Vegas.

      Here are some of my concerns with sightseeing and road conditions:

      - I've read on wikitravel that chains may be needed, I've checked the weather conditions, seems like there's no snow for the past few days and no forcasted snow during our visit (next weekend). But I'd just like to ask for those of who's been there, would it be necessary to add the chains?

      - Though the weather seems fine, several roads seem to be closed from the Park's morning report as of Jan 28th:

      Hunter Mountain Road..CLOSED for the winter due to snow.
      Keane Wonder Road ....CLOSED; road and mining area closed to entry due to mine-safety hazards.
      Saline Valley (South Pass)..Signed CLOSED by Inyo County; 4x4 recommended; expect winter conditions, carry chains.
      Saline Valley (North Pass)..CLOSED for the winter due to snow.
      Titus Canyon Road .......Open, use caution
      Upper Wildrose Road....Open with snow 1/4 mile before kilns; road closed beyond kilns.
      Saratoga Springs ..........Road CLOSED due to mud.

      Would these roads affect my plan mentioned above?

      - On the general road conditions during winter, is there anything else that I should be noting down? Is my plan doable on a regular car?

      Lastly, are the sights manageable with the time I've allocated to it? Are there any changes to my sights that you would suggest?

      My husband and daughter and I are considering travelling from Los Angeles for a viasit to Death Valley. We would probably leave in the morning from LA and stay over one night or maybe two. What would you suggest we do or must see's? Would it be advisable to stay 2 nights coming from LA and if so where would you suggest we stay? Also, is it necessary to have a 4 wheel drive vehicle? Thanks.
