Our family has never been to DLR and that is one of our dream trips. So, I was thinking the other day how wonderful it would be to take our oldest dd (plus our younger dd) for her graduation trip in a couple years. We would also love to do a cross-country trip to California, ending at DLR. I was thinking it would be nice to rent a car here and fly home from L.A. We would love to stay in Yellowstone for a few days, etc. My question is... has anyone from the East coast or Mid-West done this type of trip? What are your tips, where did you stay and what did you see along the way, etc? Also, if you know of anyone trip reports of families that have done this, I would love to read them. (We would have to do this as inexpensively as possible too.) Thank you!!
