Flying to LA from UK mid December. I'm then hiring car and driving to Death Valley, probably staying at hotel in Furnace Creek which I recall from last trip 25 years ago. Two nights stay before driving on. So I'd appreciate recommendations on any 'must see' places in/around Death Valey please. Also possible solo hiking, say 5-8 miles? Oh, and what weather can I expect?

We're going to be spending some time in the Bay Area at the end of Sept. We'll be in San Jose for 3 days. I want to attend a concert at Mountain Winery and go to the Tech Museum. We will go to San Francisco and fly home from there. Any recommendations for getting to Mountain Winery? Also hotels and good ethnic restaurants.
I'm attending a conference in Saratoga in October that will last 3-4 days. I would like recommendations for hotels and things to do in the afternoon and evenings. I'm interested in wine tastings and would like to go to the tech museum. I will not have a car. Once the conference is over, I will take the train to San Francisco. I know there is a lot to see in the city, so would love some ideas about where to stay and how to make the best use of my time.
We're going to be in Silicon Valley for a wedding in October. We want to stay in either Saratoga or Los Gatos. We'd like recommendations for hotels and restaurants. We plan to stay on for a few days, and will probably take the train to San Francisco, though we may rent a car.
Im planning a short car trip through the beaches between San Diego and Ventura and after go to L.A. But ive never been in this area, I dont know if it's possible to do that, i read about the highway 01 and I would like some tips about it. If one day it's enough to do this, or if there is some place that worth spending the night at... Or visiting some island nearby! i have no idea what to do ☺️
We're from the UK and have bought an RV for our road trip which will be in stages. We would like to be in Yosemite in late April or early May, could be mid May. RV is 31 feet long, tow car say 15 feet with the connection. Should we abandon one or the other outside the park? Is there a campground that will accept both? Easy to disconnect and back in provided it's permitted to park alongside This would be the best option for retirees going out by day in the car and having a base to return to.
Which camp ground/site number should we be hovering our mouse over when the dates are released? This is a very specific question but someone may know a goody or three.
The Camp sites outside the park seem a very long way, talk of a 45 minute drive in doesn't really feel like the full Yosemite experience. Advice welcome.
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?

I'm planning a Roadtrip to California. I would arrive at Los Angeles. I want to see LA (2days are enough, been here before) Las Vegas Yosemite San Francisco Drive from SF to LA via Highway No1 with 1-2 stopover nights.
And i want to see Yellowstone National Park by fly to Idaho/Jackson hole
My timeframe would be around 20days.
So when to go? I could go in Late April-Early June, or Septemper-October.
Spring: Tioga Pass maybe still closed, for Yosmite i would have to go via Bakersfield Yosmite would have beautiful waterfalls LV Area is not so hot Coastal Weather at HGW1 would be not so good ( i head) Yellowstone nice
Fall: Tioga Pass sure open No waterfalls, but maybe autumn colors? Coastal Weather is good (they write sep-oct is best for that) LV are not so hot Yellowstone nice
What would you suggest. I read that Yellowstone is both nice in Spring and Fall so that is not the critical point. In Spring i maybe will hit Memorial Day what would result in high cost and many people?
About the car, what would be best for this journey, is a 4x4 or so needed? I would go for a standard SUV thing, but maybe there's something better?
Vi are traveling around the USA next summer. We will be visiting Las Vegas on Fourth of July, and after that we would like to spend one week on the beach somewhere. The question is where...We have been thinking of San Diego, or maybe crossing the border to Mexico. Is it easy to get in to Mexico and then back to the USA? Any recommendations for beach holiday will be appreciated. We are leaving from Los Angeles and will spend the last four days of our holiday there.
