We are planning a 3 week road trip starting from LA on 23rd Aug (fly home to England from LA on 11 Sept).
Must visit Grand Canyon, Yosemite, San Francisco and thought chill out on Highway No 1 - Monterey, Santa Barbara etc before flight home.
We hadn't realised how difficult this would be to plan! so any help will be greatly appreciated.
Does the following sound feasible, are the distances between places reasonable, is this the shortest route in order to see GC Yosemite etc and are the overnight stops long enough?
LA to Needles - stay 1 night
Needles to Grand Canyon NP (South rim)- stay 3 nights
Grand Canyon to Las Vegas via Kingman & Hoover Dam - stay 2 nights
Las Vegas to Death V. - stay 1 night
Death V. to Yosemite NP - stay 2 nights
Yosemite to San Francisco - stay 3 nights
San Fran. to Monterey/Carmel - stay 1 night
Mon/Carmel to Cambria - stay 2 nights
Cambria to Santa Barbara - stay 3 nights
Santa Barbara to Santa Monica - stay 1 night
Flight home next day
I have a feeling we are being too ambitious and there will too many very long drives involved!
Looking forward to comments
