We are a family of 7 people, youngest 14 and oldest 53 from Denmark and this will be our second holiday in this area together. I posted it in this forum as we will be doing a lot of driving and crossing states, hope that will be ok.
We will be flying in to LAX on the 7th of July and returning on the 26th of July, 2014. We will go straight to Vegas for 1 Night and to rent camping gear for Grand Canyon.
2. Night - Bright Angel Lodge - booked
3.night - Bright angel Camp - waiting to book permits - already booked meals and duffelservice.
4. And 5. Night - Caesars Palace, Vegas.
Then we will be leaving for a three Night ranch stay near Wells, NV
A long drive so 6. Night in Ely.
Night 7,8 and 9. on Ranch.
So far so good, this is all planned :-)
We then want to see the Redwoods and have booked at Requa Inn, Klamath.
Again, a long drive so maybe a stop over in Susanville for the 10. night? Or any suggestions?
We then have night 11. and 12. at Klamath.
I have already booked a flat in SF for the next 3 nights, but after reading a lot of posts it looks like we should make a stop between Klamath and SF - we want to drive as much as possible on 101 and 1- I would like to keep it open and be a little spontanuos as to where we spend the night but maybe around Fort Bragg or closer to SF depending on the driving time...is it completely impossible to find a place without reservations in July?our budget being around 200 pr room? And willing to separate the group if necessary ..
I have the same concern after reading posts for the last leg of our trip.
I will be thankful for any input :-)
Best regards from Denmark.
