My knowledge of CA geography is quite pitiful, so please forgive me if this is completely nuts! My DH and I have been discussing taking a family vacation out west this summer. It would be me, DH, DD9 and DD7. We are really up in the air about where to go, when to go, and how long to stay. The girls get out of school in late May and return in early August, so we were leaning toward sometime in June/July... just like everybody else . One of the scenarios we have been considering is flying into San Francisco, spending a few days there, visiting Point Reyes Nat'l Seashore, Redwood Nat'l Park and Yosemite (not necessarilly in that order). Is this doable? We would probably have about 10 days. At this point, we are flexible in number of days and when during the summer we would travel. How many days would you suggest staying at Yosemite? I've checked availability, and there seems to be very limited accommodations still available, though our dates are pretty flexible. Tenaya Lodge seemed to have the most open availability. Is that a good place to stay? Any other suggestions on must see places to visit in Northern CA? Thanks. Mary PS- DH laughed uncontrollably when I told him that the DIS had a board dedicated to CA vacations. He then asked if there was anything I couldn't find out on the DIS!!!!
