My orginal plan was San Diego, Anaheim, Santa Monica. We would fly in and out of LAX on SW (flying from Houston but kids and I would fly to Chicago for return). After reading some posts here, I'm very interested in staying at Wuksachi Lodge and skipping San Diego (we have been there before). Help me work this out. If we arrive on a Thursday (early evening) and drove a couple of hours towards Wuksachi Lodge, I'm thinking Bakersfield? Friday arrive WL-stay Fri and Saturday night. Sunday- drive to Monterey stay one night Monday- drive to Santa Barbara or Oxnard (using Hilton points and nice Double Tree in SB or very nice Embassy in Oxnard)-ADVICE!! Stay 2 nights at either location. Wednesday- on to DL for 2 full days and maybe a half day on Wednesday-depending on where we end up SB or Oxnard. Saturday- Santa Monica for one night. Sunday-Leave out of LAX Could this work or should I stick with San Diego? Our girls will be 8 and 10. I want to break up the driving as dd 8 has car sickness problems, but she does okay if she takes Benadryl before the drive. Please help!!
