    Default My 30th birthday SF to LV roadtrip!

    Hello everyone,

    I'm looking for a bit of advice/direction for my roadtrip this Summer.

    I have 2 weeks, with which me and my girlfriend have San Francisco and Las Vegas and back to cover as our only prerequisites.

    We want to know what would be a good route to take, to take in as much scenery as possible, and how long should we spend in each place?! (Not much I know!) We know that everyone has their own ideas but it would be good to get as much inspiration as possible. I'm only going to get the 1 chance to see all this for a while.

    Places we hope to visit on the road: Yosemite, Death Valley, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon(?). Any others?

    We are flexible as to how long in each city so feel free to suggest anything you think will be valuable. Things to avoid, places to stay, etc.

    The only thing we have to stick to is that we have to start and end at SF airport!

    So...... Let rip! I want to make this the best trip that I can, so any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Paul and Rach.

    Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! A 30th birthday is a great reason to travel in the Americas! Before we can give many ideas about routes, it would help to know how much of every day you would like to be out (traveling, driving, exploring) versus kicking back, swimming, shopping, bar-hopping, resting and enjoying where you are at the moment). You could reach all of those places in the weeks -- but what is the greater priority -- natural wonders or urban adventuring?

    Default How long in the car?

    Thanks for responding!

    Well.... Us being lazy english road trip virgins, I don't think we should be massively ambitious. Just enjoying the scenery and then being able to cap the days off in a nice bar/restaurant (hot-tub?!?) is our idea. And I'll be doing most of the driving as my girlfriend is scared of the idea of driving on the right! So it is worth bearing that in mind!

    Our idea was to spend time driving from place to place and then enjoying quality time in each place. 2-3 days in vegas. 3 days in SF? Doing the driving and parks in between. I don't mind having the long drives if I know that I will get the pay off and a rest at the end/along the way.

    We are city dwellers also, so camping is not something we do over here in England, (where the scariest wildlife are squirrels!), so hotels/lodges/motels would be our likeliest accomodation.

    I hope this is enough info for you? I know it sounds like we should go to an agent but I am really keen to do this on my own for the first time!

    Paul
