New to this forum and excited to find a knowledge bank so full of information.
My wife and I will be on a road trip starting this weekend for 4 days (30th, 31st, 1st, 2nd) and I am hoping that you can help us make the best of it. It is a short one but I am sure with your help we can make it a great one.
Arriving in Las Vegas this Saturday the 30th at 2PM.
Then rent a car and Plan to drive to Sandeigo so we can do the route 1 to San Franciso and back to Las Vegas by the 2nd September by Noon or so, we spend that night there and catch a flight back to Boston (home) on 3rd evening. Only this much is decided. We do not care about going to Sandeigo or Sanfranciso, we rahter see all the beautiful places away from the city. I mention San Deigo and San Franciso only because route 1 goes from SD to SF. Should we just focus on Route 1? I am sure there are nice places around Las Vegas that you would recommend on the way to either SD or SF.
1) See and experience beautiful local culture and sights.
2) Stop driving in the evening by 6PM, check into a clean hotel and head out to a local place for a delicious meal and a few beers. We are in our early 30s and would not mind hapenning places to spend a couple of hours in the evening dancing to the music.
3) Stay off-highway where it makes sense.
Please advice on route, places to stop, must-see places, experiences we should not forgo, good places to eat, clean places to stay ($100-$150). We do nto mind camping at one of the national forest for one night.
I wish I found this site a couple of weeks ago. Please send in your comments as soon as you can.
