I have been reading many forum posts for ideas and suggestions on a California trip but still feel bamboozled and wondered if anyone can help with possible itinerary, tips and tricks for this Aussie couple.
At present hubby and I already have flights booked to arrive afternoon in LAX 23rd June and I will fly out on the evening of 7th July while he stays on in Corona for an in-line hockey tournament managing an Australian junior team (tournament starts 6th July).
At present I anticipate we would most likely Uber or public transport from LAX to accommodation in Hollywood or surrounds and want to include LA for a day or two including maybe Warner/Universal, Hollywood Blvd, walk of fame, etc. Then perhaps 25th Jin hire a car to commence trip to SF, maybe stay overnight Halfway? Arrive SF 26th, stay 1 or 2 nights, see GG bridge, walk around the wharves, catch a cable car? Is it best to AirBnB or hotel here and will parking be a problem?
By 27/28th head towards Yosemite, is it possible to do a day trip in and out of the park or do we need to stay somewhere nearby? Is it more than a 1 day visit required? I checked hotels in Yosemite, already booked out for end June...?
By 29/30th heading towards LV, presume we need to stay somewhere overnight? The maybe 1 night in LV, see a show and then head towards SD by 1/2nd July? Stay one night if we have time, see some sights or possibly zoo/aquarium?
Hubby needs to be in Corona for start of tournament morning of 6th July. I will go with him for one night, will have to get back to LAX by myself on evening of 7th July for flight home as he may be too busy at the rink to drive me back?
At what point do we drop off the car? He may not need it for Corona as he’ll be busy at the rink most of the rink and not going far. Maybe we drop off in Anaheim somewhere before Disney days as we hope to stay nearby and can Uber if needed for these days...?
Is it doable to fit it all in or are we trying to squeeze too much? Which cities are better to hotel vs AirBnB?
Amy advice would be appreciated!
