Hmmm . . . First of all your grandchildren will love Safari West. Just make sure you visit when the weather is neither too hot nor too cold. My guess is that most people spend one night and one day at Safari West. You can pretty much cover it in that amount of time. Be sure to book the dinner on the night you stay. To my knowledge there is no Amtrak nearby. I would drive and stop to visit other wonderful things along the way. Hearst Castle comes to mind. One of my favorite way offbeat places is a real working ranch near San Luis Obispo. They have limited guest facilities, I think it's called "Work Family Guest Ranch". If the kids are into horses they can go on a beautiful ride. Next stop could be San Francisco, lots of kid-related things to do there obviously depending on the ages. Then up to Safari West. Head home through Yosemite, well worth several nights, etc. Good luck with the planning
