West coast itinerary with a 9 year old

We're a family of 3 from India with my 9 yr old son, planning a 3 week trip to the US. We've been to the country before but only to NYC and Orlando (Disney).

Wanted some ideas on where to spend these 3 weeks With the following limitations that we have:

- our dates are 13may-2jun with one week where I will be at work, away from them (21-25 may)

- thinking about limiting it to the west coast

- we have limitations on any fairly strenuous activities, eg trekking or camping

- wanted to visit at least one amusement park with non-extreme rides

- ideally would like to spend at least 4 days in each place as we'd be carrying heavy suitcases

Thx in advance

The place to start is with a bit more information. Where are you flying into? Out of? Where do you need to be for work? Or more to the point, will your family be with you in the work location or will they/can they be some place independent?

You've done Disney in Orlando so I am assuming the Disney parks in CA are okay or did you want something different in CA?

Are you going to rent a car?

Besides a theme park, what else are you interested in seeing?

It would also help before you post to look at the CA guide here on TA and read up on San Diego Orange County including Anaheim, LA and the San Francisco Bay Area. A lot to see in these areas as well as the National parks like Yosemite even with short walks instead of hikes
