Californian road trip April 2015

My wife and I are travelling to San Francisco in april 2015 and going on a road trip we are staying in san fran for 3 nights then collecting a car and driving to yosemite staying at the yosemite lodge at the falls for 2nights, then travelling to monterey and staying 1 night, then driving to pismo beach and staying for 1 night, then driving to LA and staying in north hollywood for three nights and then staying in anaheim for 1 night and going to disney, then going to laguna beach staying at Pacific edge for 1night, then going to san diego for two nights and then driving to las vegas for 4nights at the cosmopolitan. All our hotels are booked up for these locations.

I was just wondering what are the must see and avoid things to do in these places?

also when we are staying at pismo beach it is our wedding anniversary and at laguna beach it is my 30th birthday and in san diego is my wifes 30th birthday so I was wondering if there is anything we can do in these locations to make it extra special?

Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.

thanks jimmyd

Your itinerary sounds delightful.....

For ideas Pismo Beach. You might want to go to Avila Beach before hand and have a nice time at Sycamore - they have some hot tubs that sit outside under the trees.



In Laguna Beach - what do you enjoy doing? Hiking? other? In nearby Newport Beach they have gondola rides you can take to restaurants - but I am thinking that might sound more fun for your wife than you - so if you can let us know what you would like in a birthday event that would be helpful. Fast cars? Wine? Sporting Events?


For San Diego, I like the Marine Room - the ocean waves literally splash against the windows if the tide is right...check in advance for best timing to see that


if interested

or dinner at George's in La Jolla would be nice
