I am planning a road trip with my wife and my parents sometime in spring.
I have been going through several posts on this site and am having information overload right now.
So am jumping right in with my proposed plan.
May 24 Arrive at LA from Newark 10 am, get rental car and stay in LA
May 25 LA to Grand Canyon South rim
May 25 Grand Canyon
May 27/28 Zion NP
May 29 Bryce NP
May 30/31 Las Vegas
Jun 1 LV to Death Valley
Jun 2/3/4 To Yosemite via tiago (hoping it is open)
Jun 5/6 SFO
Jun 7/8 SFO to LA (via costal highway)
Jun 9 LA, fly back to Newark at 10 pm.
I read there is lot to see in and around LA but I am planning on spending more time in NP than cities.
I am planning to book everything before leaving so that i know where i am staying and prices are locked in.
I don't want to spend time hunting for places not know where i will stay each night. Does this sound fine..
Where to stop on June 1st to so that I can reach yosemite early next day (assuming Tiago pass is open or not)
I myself have not done too much camping and think that requires lot of planning to fly and camp. Also my parents might not like it much after a tiring day.
So was looking for some ideas for inexpensive lodging ideas for the national parks and in between LA/SFO
Thanks for replying in advance !!!
