My wife and I are driving out to California on interstate 80.
We will arrive in Reno on June 22.
June 23 - Lake Tahoe-Carson City area staying at Lee Vinning.
June 24,25, and 26th we have reservations in El portal
June 27 we will visit glacier point and leave through Oakhurst heading for Sequoia.I would like to make it to Sequoia to find a place to stay. It depends how much time we take leaving the park.
June 28-Kings Canyon
June 29 drive through Sequoia heading for Cambria.
June 30- San Luis Obispo
July 1 Drive highway 1 to Monterey and find a place to stay
July 2 drive to San Francisco and find a place to stay
July 3 San Francisco
July 4 San Francisco
July 5 San Francisco
July 8 Lassen national park staying around Redding
July 9 driving to Reno and then home
Will I have trouble getting a place to stay in Cambria , Monterey, and San Francisco being that close to the July 4 weekend? I was going to wait until I got to Cambria before getting a motel in San Francisco. Should I make reservations for these places earlier in our trip.
Also the motels that give you free parking seem to be along Lombard street. Are they within walking distance of the downtown area or pier 39 area? how close are they to the trolley lines?
We like scenic drives, short hikes, and historic places.
Any comments or advice on our trip would be appreciated.
