    OK, need advice

    I'm coming to the US in October (the 9th). I will spend 10 days in Anaheim, then I have booked three nighs in San Francisco (23rd), and am going to meet a group in Oregon for Halloween. From then, we plan to go to Ohio to meet another group of friends. From there to New England. I have been offered to stay with a friend in Arkansas for Christmas.
    We want to see as much as we can, but are travelling with two kids 6 and 9.
    After seeing the Yellowstone pics, I want to see that, and I want to see Vegas at some stage.
    What is something we shouldn't miss?? AS we are going to be there for three months, we need to budget as much as possible.

    Thanks!!

    About San Fran, if you want to visit Alcatraz, I suggest ordering the tickets for the prison tour/boat ride months in advance because it is a real popular attraction over there.

    Oh also nearby in that area in San Fran. is the Gheridelli Chocolate factory that is a MUST visit place .

    Oh and go to Disneyland while you are in Anaheim of course.

    You can drive through Yellowstone and see a good part of it in a day. If you want to do some hiking then plan on 2 days at least! It will get a little chilly in October though! But, the elk and deer will be out of the velvet and it would be a great time to see them

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    that is something I really want to see! We don't see much wild life in Australia. If we want to see kangaroos, we go to the zoo. I have been to the US 6 times before, but never at that time of the year, and not to these areas (except Disney LOL)
    Would Alcatraz be OK for my kids?? Maybe my DH can go alone

    Alcatraz should be okay for them. Let me see if it has a website that talks about any height and/or age requirements.

    I looked on the website all over the place and they don't mention anything about their being age or height restrictions. But if you do visit "The Rock", it would be best for you to order your tickets on and while doing so, ask the person you are talking with if there are any restrictions when it comes to age and height.

    For Yellowstone, keep in mind that this park has limited access in the winter months. You might want to visit the park's home page and check out the "Planning A Visit" link.

    As an Arizonan I'm obligated to mention the Grand Canyon as a sight to see.
