Opinions on my SF to LA road trip?
Vacation Dates are Wed., May 22 - Mon., June 3. Memorial Day falls on Mon., May 27, so we will be splitting Memorial Day weekend between San Francisco and Monterey. Will crowds be unbearable?
-Wed., May 22 - Arrive in SF late (10 or 11 pm) - we may try to find a hotel near the airport for this one night and transfer in the AM
-Thurs., May 23 - Transfer to a hotel near Fisherman's Wharf (or wake up there) and do some sort of all day winery tour. Recommendations?
-Fri., May 24 - Start the 48 hour hop on hop off bus tour; night tour of Alcatraz
-Sat., May 25 - Continue sight-seeing and attend the Giants/Rockies game @ 1:05 pm
-Sun., May 26 - Check out of hotel, pick up rental car, brunch at Spinnaker, drive down to Monterey. Which route should we take and what should we see on the way?
-Mon., May 27 - Memorial Day - Early morning whale watching. After do some sight seeing that we didn't accomplish the day before. Check out Carmel, 17 Mile Drive, Cannery Row, maybe Aquarium, possibly kayaking?
-Tues., May 28 - Continue driving down coast toward LA/Anaheim taking our time sight-seeing. Any must stops?
Here's where I need some opinions. I originally planned to spend Tues, Wed and Thurs night (5/28-5/30) in the Los Angeles area then Fri, Sat and Sun night (5/31 - 6/2) in Anaheim for Disneyland. Which of the two cities will have larger crowds on the weekend? Should we first head to Disneyland first then finish up in Los Angeles? We will then fly home out of LAX on Mon., 6/3.
