I am trying to plan a road trip for 4 adults which will hopefully include the following places. Fly to LA, pick up minvan sort of car, then drive to vegas, then Grand Canyon, then back to Vegas. Then on up to San Fran via Death Valley, giant redwood area, and we'd love to spend a few days in Yosemite. A bit of time, maybe a night or two in San Fran, then the pacific coast down to LA for a flight home with a bit of beach life thrown in.
I've been looking all over the web for advice and driving times and distances but have been failing, but luckily i have found this excellent forum.
Please can anyone advise me of how long this may take at a comfortable pace? We have 2 weeks for the holiday in mind. We are prepared to drive for up to 6 hours of a day, but do not want to drive everyday as we'd like to spend a day or 2 in the three major cities, and maybe the same in yosemite.
Will it be possible? And what routes would you recommend. Also, we're planning to go in May, so will we be able to find little motels on the way to stop over in the middle of nowhere, etc?
Thanks for your anticipated help.
