Hi folks forum I havebeen lurking around for a while trying to see if I can find all the information needed for my wife and I's June 2 week trip (16 days) to california. If I had my way we would be doing this trip on a Harley rental-never mind!!
Here is my proposed trip:
Day 1 Land in San Fran from the UK, pick up hire car (convertible of course) at 1pm and travel to Monterey for two nights.
Day 2 Monterey visit Big Sur, hearst castle etc
Day 3 Travel to Ventura for three nights
Day 4 Ventura
Day 5 Ventura visit six flags rollercoaster park
Day 6 travel to las Vegas
Day 7 Las Vegas
Day 8 Hire a Harley for the day visit Hoover Damm, Boulder City etc
Day 9 Las Vegas
Day14 San Fran
Day 15 San Fran
Day 16 San Fran
My questions are as follows;
Firstly, does my route and plan seem okay to you seasoned travellers?. I have looked at the forum and am still a little confused into which way to travel back from Las Vegas to San Francisco
I would like to do the usual tourist route taking in the wonderous scenery including death valley up through to Yosemite, Tiago pass and onto Bodie ghost town. Can you help me space the four days I have to do this journey by recommending old town charm and beautiful scenery to stay at. Were not really into hiking much, just want to chill, maybe a swim in the accommodation pool, take photos and eat USA steak!
Looking at the maps, Furnace creek seems too closefor our first night . I like the look of Kernville, would you recommend this.
I would also be grateful for your choice of Las Vegas Hotel, definately want to be on the strip-looking at three star (four if I could get a good deal) with a pool
Many Thanks in anticipation of your replies
