Have been looking at the forums (here and road trip) all day but would welcome some advice. We can get reasonably priced flights into and out of LA at the end of June beginning of July 2014. I would be travelling with my husband and 4 year old son. I see from other posts suggestions of flying out of/into SF but unfortunately the flights double in price that way and it would make the proposed trip out of our budget.
Bearing the above in mind I would like to spend 2 weeks (we could add an extra day or two) travelling from, around and back to LA. We would hire a car and will stay in cheaper accommodation. Obviously with a 4 year old Disney appeals and I'm sure ticket prices are expensive. We are outgoing and like to do all kinds of activities - beach, bikes, hikes etc. so we are open to suggestions. I have just been to Las Vegas and with a 4 year old would rule it out (even though I know others don't) but if we could fit in GC great if not Yosemite really appeals.
I welcome some expert advice on a possible/doable itinerary which would mean we aren't driving all day although my son doesn't mind a few hours holed up in the back!
I look forward to your feedback.
