  1. Default US roadtrip it is

    Hi there,

    My fiance and I've decided to give the states a go for our 1st international Road trip, as we've only heard great things. We both reside in the UK, she on an Austrian passport and I on a South African, hence I will get my visa sorted early! Since we only just made the decision, we are still very flexible and open to any advise and suggestions.

    We have basically decided on a time, period and preferred route. Which are, July 2009, 3 weeks and the West Coast, including Las Vegas if possible. We do want to take things easy, so if we can't see it all, it won't be a problem, as there will always be next time!

    I've started my research and found this site extremely helpful, where to begin, in terms of arrival. Shoould we start up north or south, even in Las Vegas? We're both in full-time employment and the boss will only allow 3 weeks. We'll be hiring a car, so if anyone has a suggestion for a route or some experience, we'd greatly appreciate the help!

    Many Thanks,

    Default Great choice.

    Hello and welcome to the R.T.A forums.

    Three weeks is a nice amount of time to explore some of the Southwest and see the amazing diversity it offers from city's to deserts to a scenic coast and some of the best National parks to be seen. [Yosemite, Zion, Bryce canyon, Grand canyon are a few].
    This link has lots of advice and ideas for visiting the South west I would search the forums and gather up some info and set out a rough itinerary and then we can help you to "fine tune" your routes e.t.c.

    Default endless possibilities

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    With 3 weeks, you really have millions of possibilities for a trip that includes Vegas. You could check out San Diego, LA, San Francisco, and the Coast in between. There are also the natural sites and national parks like Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, Sequoia, Death Valley, and/or Joshua Tree. You could also look at going east towards Grand Canyon, Utah's Parks like Zion, Bryce, Arches, etc. You could even go to farther away places like Oregon, Yellowstone, or Colorado. The links that Dave provided are an excellent start, but just do some more browsing around and you'll find lots of ideas and possibilities.
