Las Vegas - San francisco - LA

Planning to travel from Singapore wiht 2 kids (5 and 9) in Nov.

Still not sure if we can drive around ourselves, or should we follow a tour group... any advice? we do drive around in Australia very much, but not sure if its going to be similar drive in US. We're planning for about 2weeks trip.

key thing is to bring our kids to Disneyland and knotts berry farm. anything we should not miss in our itinery whilst planning?

any advise would be appreciated

You can certainly drive yourself. Random thoughts...

>Legoland in Carlsbad (near San Diego) is popular with the under-ten kids who love Lego.

>San Diego is another worthwhile destination while you're in Southern California, but you can't go everywhere in only two weeks.

>Thanksgiving is a very busy time with lots of people on the road for the entire weekend. 4th Thursday ~ Nov 25

>Internal flights might be an easier option. Southwest is a decent airline for something like this. But if you're flying near Thanksgiving, you'll pay more.

>Limited daylight hours in November.

>If you choose to drive up Hwy 1 along the coast, Monterey Bay Aquarium is world class.
