Hi, Me and some friends are planning our best holiday yet after going to europe for the last 6 years.
My plan so far is to fly into san francisco, have a few nights there, then onto lake tahoe for a couple of nights, down through yosemite, death valley (a night at each) before heading of to vegas for 3 nights. then off to the grand canyon and barringer crater (again a night some where near each). then off to LA for a few nights before heading back up to san fran (stopping for 1 night on the way).
while im excited with this route do you reckon its a bit much to be doing in about 16 days?
Also, i noticed that american road laws have a 60 MPH speed limit. While this seems redculous i'm interested to knw how much people stick to this over there. Here in the UK when ever i travel down south (im from the north east) i just drive 90-100 mph (obviously watching for the poh-leece). but most people drive like that here. What are american drivers like on long distances - what are the un-written rules so to speak.
Also, as part of trying to get into the spirit of it all and not wanting loads of faff on ebfore i leave i want to know how hard it will be to get a hotel/motel at the places im going to. is there anywhere i should really arrange accomodation for before flying?.... and how much should i be looking to pay.
well thanks for you help.
