Mount Shasta — 2 nights

Mount Shasta is a city in Siskiyou County, California, at about 3600ft above sea level on the flanks of Mount Shasta, a prominent northern California landmark. Attractions like Mount Shasta and Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge make great kid-friendly stops. Visiting Lava Beds National Monument and McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Mount Shasta side-trips: Large Junk Art Sculptures (in Cassel) and Alpen Cellars (in Trinity Center).

San Jose to Mount Shasta is an approximately 5-hour car ride. When traveling from San Jose in August, plan for a bit warmer days and little chillier nights in Mount Shasta: temperatures range from 89°F by day to 51°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) to allow time to drive back home.
