In early stages of planning a 2 ish week trip with teens (13-19) to California and can't decide whether it's best to fly (from London) to LA or SF first and either tour from Noth to South or vice versa. We would fly in from one and home from the other so we don't have to drive back to our original starting point.
We want to visit Sea World San Diego, all the usual sights in LA inc Disney, Universal, Hollywood, Knottsberry farm etc. etc. and Golden Gate bridge, Alcatraz etc in San Francisco. We are planning on hiring a car and self driving but maybe not in San Francisco as it seems that Public Transport is good there?
We will probably arrive around the 5th July. Any advice appreciated.
