My best travel tips
Money and cost
Buy the annual park pass (costing around 80 dollars) and it lasts one year from the date of purchase, giving you the flexibility to visit several different national parks and recreation sites in one year. Use the pass as a pre-paid entrance for all passengers in a non-commercial vehicle at per-vehicle fee areas. You can also use it at the entrance to per-person fee areas, too, granting you access for yourself (the pass holder) and three adults. Children under 16 who accompany any annual pass holder are granted free access, as well.
Transportation
As we had mentioned earlier, California is humongous and diverse. There is no way you can see everything worth seeing in a few days, but going up and down the glorious Pacific Coastal Highway (US Highway 101) is one way to ensure you are going on the best road trip ever. Because of this, you need to be realistic in your time constraints. Going from Point A to B will take time, so know where you wish to go before anything else.
You will also want to have a reliable GPS, since the roads around Cali can be confusing for first timers.

Weather
Remember to pack for varied weather, since San Fran tends to be cooler and rainier than San Diego. Yosemite is up in the mountains, so it’s colder than LA.
