Hi everyone! I am planning my first adult road trip for May. We live in San Diego, CA and want to visit the Grand Canyon and Carlsbad Caverns. We are thinking of stopping over in Vegas but its still iffy about that. We have 7 days free the last week of May. I want to have a few days in Carlsbad because I want to see the Desert Zoo as well as the caves. My husband is the only driver as I dont have a liscense. We have a tiny car so hotels are a must. I have found several hotels in Carlsbad that look good. Does ayone have any tips about where to stay along the way or cool side stops we could make?
Thanks ahead of time for any advice!
