Hi everyone, would like to ask you guys about a planned trip to CA. Every year for the last 8 years we have spent a month in Florida from mid July to Mid August. This year due to work commitments we not having a holiday but for next year I quite fancy a change. We always hire a nice villa with a pool and tend to hit the universal parcs a few times but mainly go for the family time, eating out and enjoying the sun (being in the UK we don't see much sun). So I would love to see San Fransisco, Santa Monica and maybe two days in Vegas. We don't mind driving but want to stay somewhere that we will feel safe and that is suitable for three children (16, 14 and 10 next year). Is there anyone from CA or who knows CA well enough to give me some advice and tips? We feel extremely safe in Florida and as such have never had any bad experiences in all our trips.
