Hello there, new here.
Right, me and 3 friends all aged between 23-26 and from Nottingham England. Are going on a trip on the 17th March 2008 to LA, Grand Canyon and Vegas. For 10 nights (4 nights LA, 2 at the Grand Canyon & 4 in Vegas.) Im incredibly excited about this as ive always wanted to vist California and the West Coast. We've hired ourselfs a car so we'll be driving to each place. Our plan thus far is
Arrive 17th March LA, Hotel- Best Western Anaheim Inn.
Day 1- Beaches (Newport, Huntington, Long Beach and others if possible)
Day 2- Hollywood, Beverly Hills (i think we may have a concert booked this night at the Henry Fonda Theater, the band is Nada Surf)
Day3- Universal Studios
Day 4- Drive to Grand Canyon, Hotel- Grand Canyon Plaza Quailty Inn
Day 5- Full day at the Canyon (Helicopter ride, Skywalk)
Day 6- Drive to Vegas, Hotel- The Luxor
Days 7,8,9- we're in Veags then till the end of our trip. I think Vegas is just going to be party party party, which sould awesome.
Fly home 27th March.
So we're trying to get in as much as possible of the West. So any help would be great. What im especialy here for is if anybody knows of any good/cool Places of Interest on the way from LA to the Grand Canyon as this would be our longest drive of the roadtrip and there will most probably be times when we need to stop. And also places of interest from Grand Canyon to Vegas, i know there's the Hoover Dam and hopefully more.
Also some suggestions on our trip, more so our plans in LA (whats the best Beaches, Restaurants & Bars etc...) and Vegas any where spercific we have to see?
So really any help, suggestions or anything you might want to add about any of our trip would be fantastic.
All help would be very much appreciated.
