We are travelling in October 9 nights with age 7 & 9 year old well travelled kids on a THURSDAY.
We like adventure and moving around trips with foodie fun adventures.
We have been to SAn Diego,Laguna beach. La jolla and disneyland twice so this trip we are changing things up and are are flying in LAX early afternoon. Rental car pick up and considering Magic Castle hotel/motel. We can do the walk of fame. People watching , original farmers market, Mulhalland drive, universal studios. We are planning 1-2 nights max.(thurs friday)
We would like to make overnight stops along the way to SF . Hotels with pools and breakfast included are a bonus.
San fran we plan on arriving wednesday so we have 4 nights we can stop and stay overnight before we get here. My spouse suggested palm springs but I am not sure if this is too off the beaten path .
We want to see Redwoods, 12 mile scenic drive, cypress trees, some beach's for kids to play, etc. also places we can leave car at hotel and walk to restaurants is ideal.
Are locations we have read about.
