We are planning a trip to the US next year for 5 weeks. 2 adults and 2 children (10 and 7yrs). I didn't know much about US geography until recently (and still don't really know very much).
Theme parks are high on the agenda as the trip is mostly about the kids, with a few things thrown in for me!
Any comments/suggestions on the draft plan would be much appreciated, including best places to stay/book etc ... Best way to book domestic flights. Only thing locked in so far are the flights to and from the US (San Francisco) so everything else can be fine tuned. We will do a combination of driving and flying.
