my friends and i are planning to fly from slovenia to LA 10th april. we are supposed to stay in LA over the weekend and during that stay also visit San Diego. Then on Sunday we are planning to rent a car and drive ourselves to San Francisco, Las Vegas and back to LA where we'd dropped off our car and fly to NYC (19th april).
i've read a lot of the posted treads on your forum, they are helpful, but i got even more confused!! i didn't get the posts about snow and road being closed at the end of april due to snow. is that on our way from SF to Las vegas or from Las Vegas to LA?
primarily our trip plan was to just visit LA, SF and Las Vegas (only the cities), possibly the Death Valley, but after reading many of your posts, we have realized there is still so much to see, but now we have no idea what would be a realistic plan.
this will be our first trip to USA and we come from Slovenia, a small country in EU, where 250 miles is the length of the whole country, so honestly, i do not really picture myself the American distances and how much time it takes you to get from A to B there :) we have been traveling a lot around EU, but USA is new to us.
so please, if you could just give me any realistic ideas of what is possible to see and what skip and leave for the next time? is it better to stay longer in each city and see the scenery just on our drive through from city to city?
also if anyone knows - i've read somewhere that it is cost free to rent a car in LA and drop it off in Las Vegas. Does anyone know anything about this?
