Hi Robb, Elissa, and others,
Due to your experience with coaster trips, I decided that you were the best people to ask about the best itineraries for coaster trips that have a good combination of parks, culture, coasters, food, and fun! Also, I live in LA, with relatives in NoCal, so I've already done the West Coast Bash parks as well as CGA, SFDK, and Santa Cruz Boardwalk. So what trips worked well for you, with a good balance of everything. Thanks!
