I be flying in sf on the 31/10 (arriving early afternoon 14:30) from london whith a fried of mine and we will be flying back from SF on the 10th of november.
This leave us with 9 full days to go around in california (acually 6 as we will be spending the last 3 days in SF.
What we would like to do is to get off the plane rent a car and start heading to LV.
Maybe stayng the first night near yocemite park, then the day after going towards death valley and stay there for the night(we would like to follow the most scenic routes)
Then getting to LV in the evining, stay there 2 night and then heading west towards LA. As we don't have much time I got told to skip LA
and to be honest we would be fine with that.
at this point we will have 2 1/2 days to get back to sf again.
As this will be my fisrt time in US i haven't got a clue of the distances and resonable timeframe etc etc.
Do u think the plan is feasable?
Can you suggest the best routes (the scenic ones) ;-)
Any cheap options for accomodations? is it better to book in advance?
Is it gonna be cold in mountains this period of the year???brrrr
PS...the plan above is just an idea, we are open to any suggestion
PPS...any particular travel guide that u would racommend?
thanks in advance for your help!!!
