I've only recently joined after trying to plan routes and itineraries for an upcoming trip to the States. Basically, my boyfriend and I are flying over from the UK to attend a wedding in Las Cruces, New Mexico next May. We want to combine this with as much as possible to get the most out of the trip.
So our ideas were to try and see Las Vegas- Grand Canyon- LA- San Francisco and Yosemite, as well as attend the wedding! I know there are several threads about this type of roadtrip but because of the New Mexico factor in ours, I'm finding it a little tricky to find the best routes and itineraries.
We are thinking of arriving in the States on April 26th and leaving on May 17th or 18th (so approximately 23 days to do everything!) We have to be in Las Cruces from May 2nd until the 4th. We are flexible about which airports we fly into and out of and because of limited time, I realize we will probably need at least one internal flight (possibly from El Paso Int'l Airport to LA.) The dates I have mentioned can alter. For example, we could fly directly to El Paso on May 2nd for the wedding and then spend the next two weeks travelling. Or I thought we could fly into Vegas on April 26th and spend a week in Vegas/Grand Canyon before heading to the wedding and then onto to CA.
As you can tell, it's all a bit confusing! If you can give me any advice on itineraries or routes I would be so grateful. Also, if this seems impossible to cram everything in, please let me know and advise me which bits of the trip would be the best.
