    I've been thinking along the same lines K1W1 but this is the maximum extent of the ticketing, if I choose not to go 1 day it doesn't kill me. The marginal price increase of the 3 day ticket was bugger all over the 2 day ticket when bought as a Southern California Super-pass.

    I don't like trying to see something of LA or San Fran in just 2 days each but it's one rushed schedule.

    I was going to offer another long 2 cents worth, but decided not to.

    Brief version:

    2 days LA
    2 days San Diego

    Traffic in metro areas (LA-San Diego and San Jose-San Francisco) weekdays may be worse than expected. Commuter lanes may help.

    Highway 1 is down to 1 lane just North of Big Sur. May add up to 30 minutes to the trip to San Francisco.

    I'm thinking most venues you have listed will take longer than scheduled.

    If you cut off 1 day in LA, 1 day in San Diego, 1 day in DC and 1 day in NYC, you can take a more leisurely pace, and still catch the highlights.

    Since you are going to Indy I would recommend the Indy 500 racetrack museum. Race cars there date back to the early 20th century. If memory serves me Jack Brabham's modified F1 Cooper is there as well (ca. 1961). This year marks the 100th anniversary of the race.

    Luckily you will be there 2 days after the 500,000 race spectators leave.

    Over and out.

    Another good vantage point, for lower Manhattan, The Battery, and other points, is from The Statue Of Liberty, or in this case the SS Miss Liberty (on the way to the statue).

    Sorry this one is a little dated... 09/07/01... Nikon CP990

    The traffic was far worse than Googlemaps predicted but I figured it was giving me traffic free estimates so that was allowed for and ok so far, it meant we had to drop seeing the USS Iowa though. La Brea Tar Pits was interesting and a must see for me from my childhood so I was glad to get there but it didn't live up to my inflated escalations.

    Well worth a visit to anyone with kids that are interested in dinosaurs. Many great specimens and a pleasure to be at such a world renowned site. Here's a couple happy snaps but I'm just too tired to do much more than this today, I promise to do better tomorrow (after Disneyland who am I kidding I won't be knackered)

    It's good to see that the schedule is being treated as a guide rather than beng are and fast.

    Glad to see that you survived the first day here. D'land will probably leave you totally wiped out.
